I didn't get any "knitting" gifts, but I did get one very special "knitted" gift. I've been playing with yarn since I was a little girl. I have two grown daughters, who were never much interested in my needlecrafts...until a few months ago that is. My oldest daughter asked me to teach her to knit. She picked it up in no time, but being the perfectionist that she is, she would only keep knitting and ripping and knitting and ripping...we all know how that is. She also taught herself to purl, using youtube. I'm one proud mama!
Well, this Christmas, she surprised me with a scarf that she knitted for me. It's beautiful! Made me cry (tears of joy of course). So, I guess "knitted" gifts rock too, at least for me!!
