I took up the needles yesterday to make this Christmas gift. (Don’t mind me; I’m a hot mess!) I just learned how to finish the stitch without making a bungle of knots and holes like the first one I made a week ago. Knitting truly relaxes me and the click-clack of the aluminum needles brings me back to simpler time in my life, sitting at my grandmother’s feet while she patiently taught me how to knit. It’s wonderful to remember, both the skill and my grandmother.
