:roflhard: but in this part of the world we do knit a lot in the winter, there is not much else to do. Long dark days without snow..
We also learn to knit at school, when we are about lets say 11 years old.. and most of our mothers and especially grandmothers knitted, because there was not much to buy.
My grandmother never bought clothes for my mother, all was homemade. And my mother did the same with me and my sister.
I knit things I like to knit, not because I have to...
