I'm an opera singer and avid knitter of 15 years. It's funny how much joy knitting brings me, and sometimes I feel silly, but there is nothing better than creating something from a ball of yarn that wasn't there before.
Impressive-I really love music but don't know that much about it and your creations are lovely. I'm knitting alone right now, too. My knitting friend is in Germany for the next 4 months. Sweet history of your matriarchs. It was my grandfather that taught me to crochet. But I taught myself to knit about 1 1/2 yrs ago. Wish it was all I did - love it. Just thought I'd look around and say 'hi' and 'happy knitting'.
