Knitting Friends

I have knitting friends from all parts of the country and all ages.

One knitting friend that I LOVE to bounce ideas off of or ask a knitting technique, opinion or question is Mady.

Mady grew up in Germany and – of course – learned to knit when she was young. Her sister sends her German knitting magazines with pages earmarked or page numbers circled of sweaters that she would like. And I have been the lucky recipient of some of those issues! They are full of beautiful, intricate and sometimes runway trendy patterns.

Yes, Mady knits a lot. One Christmas she knit each of her daughter-in-laws a sweater. If I remember right, she started in November and had both sweaters completed weeks before the giving!

Like me, she loves to use DK and Sport Weight yarns. She is also one of the only people I know who knits from Vogue Knitting Magazine.

Mady really knows her knitting! I am so fortunate to be able to sit next to her, learn from her and call her my friend.
