I knit.

When I am not watching tv or on the phone or reading
(I read just 23 books in the entire 12 months of 2013...
usually I read at least 3 times that many!)
...I am sewing.


Sometimes, though, I knit.  
 Cuz, after all, knitting is my therapy.
Written about here.

Little sweaters.
Lately, hats.
For dolls.
Or, for little boys.
Like this one...
Me Mum wanted to knit a 'football' hat 
for Riley, sister's youngest grandson.
However, me Mum has difficulty knitting these days.
It is very sad, as she was once a world-famous knitter.
Okay, not really, but she could have been!
She did absolutely beautiful work.
That has changed drastically in the last few years...
aging and Parkinson's Disease being the culprits.

I told her I would knit the hat and send it to Riley.
It'll still be from her and Riley will love it!!

I knit.

And that's what makes YOU a world class knitter as well! :-)

I think it is a wonderful hat. I am so glad you knit.
I know how to knit a teeny tiny bit, so I should just try to do it. In fact I started knitting in third grade. Way before I ever really used a needle or a sewing machine. You are so right about what therapy it is, I know none better.

Knitting would put me in therapy, lol.
I have done crochet and even doilies, but no patience when I mess up stitches.

You have such a kind heart, Jacque. How sweet to knit something that would meet your Mama's desire for a gift. This growing old stuff is tough.
