OK, so here I am jumping into the internet world of blogging. Since knitting is my passion I've decided that I should write about it. It's been with me since I was about 10 years old, knitting with pencils. Me and my bff, Sheila would knit headbands during recess at school. Can't remember if any of them were ever finished. I do remember them looking awfully dirty from the lead of the pencils we used. Thank goodness the skill stuck with me and I moved on to the wonderful aluminum needles that could be purchased at the local 5 & dime. Ha, ha most of you don't remember those! Yes, I'm a bonafide baby boomer and 5 & dimes existed when I was a kid.
