Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Excuse me. I didn't start knitting in 2001 as a response to a crisis. I began to knit when my grandmother taught me at the age of 9 - that would be in 1961. It doesn't take a "collective sense of doom", espresso, TV, or keeping up with social trends to make me enjoy the complexities of skills, textures and colors of yarns, challenges of a new pattern, peacefulness of soul, and rewards of a job well done when I finish a project. These lovely benefits just happen as I sit quietly and enjoy a skill and a craft that has been handed down for generations.
