I have solved so many problems in my head over the years doing crafts. From the time I was a kid, we made things at home. About the time I was 9 or 10, my Grammy Anna (I’m her namesake) taught me how to knit. Grammy was a twin, and then I had twins. She was right-handed her twin, Martha was left-handed. My twins are the same way, Katie, right, Sarah, left. Funny isn’t it? Though I have read that about 90 percent of all twins, identical or fraternal that that is the case.
In junior high I would make little purses and sell them to friends. I also sew and that has come in handy over the years making drapes and doing alterations on the dresses of my three daughters. But the knitting thing never really left me, I picked it up in earnest against after 9-11 when the country was hunkering down and staying close, since then it got ramped up again in my life. Love chunky knitted things, so very Vogue, but anyway, I’m making baby hats for Annie Mame, and in the fall the big cowls will be back…love those because they’re so warm. I put a ribbon in the latest baby hat, see what you think. I also have other knitted hats from a gal in Clinton, Connecticut and those are quite adorable for all the little ones.
