    I’m just learning how to knit. I have crochet since I was 5. I have been making lap trows for our locak VA Hospital in the town south of us 35 miles. It has been a joy to me. a friend is going to teach me how to knit. so here I go. PS: I lost 80% of my eye sight 5 years ago from an eye stroke I only see about 20% in each eye. God has blessed me. I still can help others in my on little way. God Bless and Keep you safe. Thank you, Marlene
