My mother had attempted to teach me to knit at the age of 8. Naturally, I
was not very good at it. As time went by, and I grew older, my mother attempted at teaching me again. This time it stuck.

On and off through the years, I would knit here and there. When my 2 kids
were very young, I would think of things to make for them. I've made them
sweaters, leg warmers (it was the 80's!), and other things. Of course,

crocheting Christmas stockings. The people at work went crazy for them. I

realized that this was something that people would want to buy on a regular
basis. I started making blankets for adults and babies! Hats, scarves,
anything that people wanted. I was so busy, that I "recruited" my mother
into helping with the orders. Not only is knitting and crocheting
something that people would love to buy, but it's something that I love to
do. It also has it's bonding moments. My mother and I are together often,
brainstorming on what to make that people would love. We came up with
hats... Pumpkin hats, watermelon hats, etc... all absolutely adorable, and
I love making. Of course, in the future, I will eventually have more ideas
on what to make... My daughter who is now 26 has told me that when she gets
married, she wants all the bouqets to be crocheted. Now that's an idea!
