Like most knitters – my Mum taught me the basics of how to knit. I grew up watching her fingers flying so fast they blurred, producing beautiful knitted garments. Usually even faster at a “good bit” on the TV 😉
Mum knits small items mainly for a particular local charity and occasionally for very close family and herself. She hates the idea of oddments of yarn laying around and has become a demon for getting out the kitchen scales and working out the precise stripe pattern needed to use up colours in jumpers, mittens and booties. She says it keeps her brain active working it out!!
It was Mother’s day, here in the UK, last Sunday 18th March. Mum spent the day with me – talking knitting, eating a huge lunch, decadent dessert and watching the film “Memoires of a Geisha”. This is a two boxes of tissues movie if ever there was one – recommended!! 🙂

The same pattern with stash busting stripes and matching mitts..
Hope you liked them!
