Soliders Learn To Knit (from Lion Brand Blog)

Soldiers Learn to Knit

Posted: 12 Aug 2010 01:38 PM PDT

Teaching people to knit is always rewarding. I received an email recently from Joy, a soldier serving in Afghanistan who taught her fellow soldiers how to knit! As many of us know, knitting is a great way to relax, and Joy decided to share her relaxation method with others. It was heart-warming to hear about her impromptu knitting lessons even in less-than-ideal conditions.

Joy says, “It was extremely dusty and hard to keep anything clean, so we just took the garage sale yarn that my mother in law sent me in a care package. We got pretty creative. I made a pillow for the aid station while the PA Naimiyah made a cute scarf for her daughter.”

Have you ever taught anyone to knit or crochet? Who taught you to knit or crochet?
