From what I have read, many of you were taught to knit by your mother or grandmother. My darling mother would have rather chopped off her hand than knit (too many years of being forced to knit in her convent education and being slapped on the back of the hand if she got it wrong) and I was taught by YouTube/KnittingHelp videos.
However, this week we have been visiting my aunts and discovered one is a fantastic and hugely talented (oh the lace work) knitter so obviously it seems to run in our blood. She was facinated, and very amused, to discover I had taken up knitting and gave me a quick masterclass.
Do you think knitting is an inherited passion or is it just learned?
