My mom taught me to crochet years ago, and I've made a handful of decent items, but the craft just didn't hold my attention. Almost exactly a year ago, my grandma gave me a little kit that had a few knitting needles and a booklet on how to teach yourself to knit. So, I taught myself the basics: knitting, purling, casting on, binding off--doing a couple of rows at a time, then pulling them out and starting again. I practiced a couple of times, then decided to actually make something that only included all of these techniques...but I couldn't just make any ol' dishrag. So, I made a mum:
Well, I had been so busy at the time with preoccupying a one-year-old and running three transportation businesses that I practically put down my needles indefinitely. That was, until my grandma donated to me her huge knitting needle collection, so I had to put them to good use! Since then, I can't make my hands stop. I've made dozens of things trying to teach myself everything that I could possibly learn. I am so thankful that God took advantage of my availability and has allowed me to learn quickly. I have decided to start selling my own designs on my mom's website: www.primiteds.com and on Etsy. I will post items very soon!
