60

Today is my Birthday. I have reached a milestone. I don’t feel old. I can’t believe I have been on this earth for 60 years. That really seems like a long time. My son said it all. He said “He hopes he can feel half as accomplished in my life that you should feel about yours.” Awe! This brought on happy tears!
That is one of my biggest accomplishments, having four healthy babies of whom I am so proud of.
Sixty years. I have been knitting since I was in grade two. That would make me 7 years of age. Thanks to my Grandfather who taught me and then my Mother who continued. I would give her all my mistakes to correct. This has been my passion, knitting and crocheting. It’s all about practice. You will get better in time.
No one needs to be perfect or fast. Enjoy the learning process.
So hopefully, I will continue to knit and crochet for many more years and to be able to help people in my little shop in downtown Oshawa.
Happy Birthday to me! Happy Knitting!

    Happy birthday! What a lovely thing for your son to say. So you are at the age when you have grandchildren to look forward to. That next step is especially lovely for a knitter. All those tiny sweaters!

      Thanks Kristen,

      We are looking forward to Grandchildren. I should start knitting little sweaters now!
      Have a good day. We have lots of snow here in Canada today.
      Best,
      Leslie
