In quiet times when I knit alone I find my mind wanders back into my past and folk I have spent time with.   This got me to thinking that we all share a love of crafting with wool, and how little we really know about each other in general.

I thought it would be fun to create this space on the forum for us to share a little about ourselves, as if we were sitting around a table with a hot drink, cake and biscuits creating together and chatting.

For example: - how long have you wool crafted and who inspired you to learn...?

What was the first item you completed....?

Have you any triumph or catastrophy stories...?

Where is your happy place to knit/crochet and what does time doing this mean to you....?

Share as much or as little as you feel.  I'm sure we'll have some happy and interesting stories to share.........

Footnote.  I just. Checked my photos. Mum was 90 when she started knitting for KAS. In the 6 years I have posted for her to KAS...48 jumpers, 290 Beanies, and one blanket.  I srtill have a parcel of beanies at home to post, which will take her tally around 300

What an incredible lady, Suzanne. I think that our mothers belong to another age, when crafting was a necessary part of their lives. Nothing was wasted and recycling clothes was an integral part of their lives.After World War 2, rationing in the UK went on until 1952. I can remember a lot of "replacement" items that women had to use in order to make life easier.

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
