The Way Knit Was

The Way Knit Was
"Many old legends say that if a master knitter places her needles in a baby's hands, the baby will grow up with the same exceptional ability. This task is reserved for only the most accomplished of knitters so that only the best mojo is passed on. In villages where many people earned their living by knitting, the women who excelled were often bribed heartily to perform the task." Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, Never Not Knitting Page a Day Calendar.
Today, I placed the needles in my great grand daughter's hands-I feel I'm an accomplished knitter.

Most of us can only hope to become as accomplished as you Yvonne. Great tradition, and I'm thrilled you got a photo!
