Talking

And to give you a chuckle - I learned the basic knit stitch when I was about 7 years old. I didn't like knitting then, so I put the knitting aside.
I got back into knitting when I was in my 20s & was working on Labor & Delivery. A nurse on the "graveyard shift" (11 PM to 7:30 AM) was from Ireland & was knitting cabled sweaters SO often! A nurse on the shift I worked (3PM - 11:30 PM) & I got Maggie to get us started knitting. I got back into knitting, & have made sweaters, pullover tops, afghans, even knit the top section of a sweatshirt back in after I had cut out that material part of the sweatshirt. This pullover Aran sweater for a baby is a REAL challenge!!
