So might I say my grandmother is...amazing. As long as I remember she's always knitted scarves, literally. With one eye closed,while cooking,and even sleeping...yes I saw it. All I know is that I have a new found respect for it. Trust me I've tried learning,my hands fail me each time...I don't think my brain is sending the right signals to my fingers. In the end, my grandmothers scarves are now available to everyone, and not just exclusively to my mother and I. Straight from San Luis Obispo, California to 'chicle de anya' !!!
