The Never-Ending Blanket

I am exactly the right age to do that, thank you very much!

Warning:  I’m about to start ranting. I started knitting when I was in my early 20’s. I love it!  It’s relaxing and it makes me feel good to make things.  I’m now in my 30’s and I still have people tell me (often complete strangers) that I am too young to spend my time knitting. […]
