The first pair of knitting needles I encountered in my life belongs to my sister. She studied in a convent girls’ school and was expected to know how to be a lady which included knitting. To say she has no talent is an understatement. To cut the long story short, she wanted nothing to do with the needles and so I inherited it.
I picked up knitting on my own through reading and deciphering diagrams in knitting books (No Internet nor Youtube then). I finally had enough money to go to my local yarn store to buy enough yarn to make a top. I still remember it, cotton and orange. I knitted it for my mum and she said she looked fat in it. It got relegated to the cupboard together with the knitting needles.
Knitting mojo came back years later when I stumbled upon Ravelry.com and met some really passionate knowledgeable people in my vicinity as well as overseas. They introduce me to great yarns, nice needles and beautiful projects. Now, I knit more often and even design a few items.
