Julie over at http://samuraiknitter.blogspot.com posted a tag asking her readers about how and when they learned to knit. So here is mine.
I learned to knit 4 or 5 times from my Great Aunt Harriett. Every few years I would ask her to show me and she would go through cast on and knit and purl again. I did not knit much over the years untill My Great Uncle Kenny passed away last spring. My Great Aunt showed me the dishcloth I had knit for her years ago... I started knitting the very next week and have not really stopped since then. I taught my self to knit on a loom which gave me a greater understanding of my needle knitting.
I know a little short on the details but that is how I remember it. My Great Aunt and I sitting together... knit purl knit purl. Some of my dearest treasures are the sweaters she made my little ones
