I taught myself to knit, but my grandma provided the diy base. She taught me to sew, and we did all kinds of crafty precjots. Knitting was just something else to do with bits of yarn. I miss her.
I am so sorry to hear about Bill (and Cheri) passing. I have many fond memories of them both. They were like second parents to me in my school days, and a few years later I even got to play doubles league pool against them… of course they won! It’s been many years since I actually got to see them, but I was glad to be a Facebook friend and get a peek into their lives. They will both be greatly missed.
