My mum is a fantastic knitter, she taught me to knit when I was very young and since then she has inspired me in all my creative knitting projects. She always has a pair of needles with her. She taught my sisters, daughters, nieces and nephews to knit also.
She can knit intricate honeycomb, blackberry and cable patterns without looking at the pattern. She encourages everyone at Knitting group on Tuesdays, whether they are a beginner or an advanced knitter, she will respect everyone who tries. I think she is fantastic and I love her very much.
I am a community worker I was working full time until my cancer diagnosis in October 2013. I have been interested in crafts all my life. I am always knitting or sewing. I love the different seasonal crafts and spending time with family and friends.
