I have a second Etsy shop....It is called Ednascloset....please check it out.

I was privileged to learn to knit when I was in 4th grade in school. I lived in northern Wisconsin and when we couldn’t go outside during recess my teacher asked if we would like to learn to knit. I am from a family of 8 children and money was very scarce for “extras”. I asked Dad if he would buy me a pair of size 5 single pointed knitting needles and a ball of yarn.

It was when I was a junior in high school, that our home economics teacher reintroduced me to knitting. Throughout the years, I have done some knitting and enjoyed it very much. When I would show my knitting to friends or at fairs, I was asked if I used a machine for knitting. I was a secretary in an elementary school and that is the last thing I wanted to do is go home to a machine again. Knitting is truly a relaxing hobby for me. My biggest problem is what do I do with it all. So I am grateful that I have found Etsy and am hoping my items please you.

My items are ready for immediate shipping. Thanks so much for reading this.
