Ok…I love knitting. I’m still a newbie, and my “stash” will probably never exceed more than what’s necessary for a project, but I love knitting.
My mother, who knits at an intermediate level but prefers crochet, lives in the Caribbean. You know, that evil place where it’s always sunny and warm? Yeah. I get mad at her too sometimes. Anyway, what is there that I can knit her that she can’t simply do herself? Sweaters wouldn’t work, or afghans, since it’s usually too warm to wear long sleeves and even the “winter” months are too warm for blankets. What can I knit for my mom that she could actually use? Same thing goes for my little brother, who is almost 11 and lives there too.
