Woolly genes 2


Like any knitter, I’m often being asked who taught me to knit and how old was I when I learnt and what was my first garment knitted and so on. So I thought I’d have a bit of fun and share some photos of me as a nipper sporting some of my mum’s handknits!

I’m not sure how old I am here, but I was young. If you ask Aran who’s in this photo, he’ll tell you it’s him. Actually, nearly all of my baby photos are Aran, apparently..

Variegated yarns are not a new invention… and whatever happened to Rocket ice lollies?

You got it… I’m a child of the Seventies! And now it’s my brother looking like his nephew.

OK, there’s no real woollyness in this shot but it’s worth sharing for it’s cuteness, no?

And to answer some more of those questions? Yep, my mum taught me to knit when I was 3, and my first garment for myself was a jumper that I made aged 9. The woolly genes were passed on, and I’m rather pleased about that.
