"Fashion fads seem to come and go, but forunately for me, knit scarves are always 'in' for those of us who live in New England! While knitting needles and yarn are now available in a myriad of materials, colors, and fibers, one thing remains the same...the technique of knitting taught to me by my grandmother 40 years ago. Whether it is the basic garter stitch or the more complicated feather and fan stitch, I am reminded of her every time I create another one-of-a-kind scarf. In the past year, I have found myself experimenting with several of the hundreds of stitched created by our ancestors so many years ago. Encouraged by my grand-daughter, Zoe, I have also expanded my inventory to include hand-knit berets and slouchy hats."
