Scout’s Meme:

1. How and when did you learn how to knit/crochet?
I learned to knit from my granny when I was about 9 years old. I half-completed an ugly acrylic scarf and didn't pick it up again until I was about 26 and just moving in with my now hubby. His wonderful mother is a long-time knitter and when I showed interest in knitting again, she bought me the Vogue Knitting book and helped me begin.
I've been knitting pretty much constantly ever since (10 years!). It's amazing that it never gets old. It just keeps reinventing itself. Each project renews my passion. I get such so much satisfaction from attempting and understanding new skills.

2. How has this craft impacted your life? (besides financially!)
Knitting is more than a hobby for me. It's a passion. I knit whenever I can: in the car, outside, inside, at meetings, in parking lots, in bed (often, in bed), whilst nursing a baby. It's impact is felt everyday. It's a blessing that I share my love for knitting with my mother-in-law. We've gotten to know one another well as we sit and knit together and that has enriched my life so much. She shares my love of knitting, surrounded by pillows while watching the BBC Pride and Prejudice Miniseries. Bliss.

Also, my appreciation for wool and other beautiful natural fibers is owed to knitting and enriches my life all day long.

3. Pick at least one person to talk about who you have met through the knit-world and why you are thankful to have met them. Feel free to get all mushy.
My beautiful, funny friend Kelena and I believe that the magic of knitting is responsible for our friendship. Knitting destiny. Kelena and I have shared many terrific knitting nights, laughing hard, eating well and feeling cozy with our other good friends Janine and Delia.
Also, the local S&B has brought countless lovelies into my life! It's a gift to go every week and sit among such talented people, laugh and talk endlessly about what we all love most.

Hey Molly -
Here's your hit from Viet Nam! Sorry I didn't manage it in Hong Kong, too!

Cheers,
Heather

We think about you everyday. Have a great time, take a million pictures, write down everything that will make me weepy and hurry home!
