bryce and I were having a conversation last night and he said, we don't pass down knowledge anymore, we just google it... and while I didn't totally disagree with him, I guess I am still from the generation of people who learned things from their grandparents. and I like to think that I will be able to pass talents onto my grandchildren.
one of the many things I learned from my nanna was finger knitting, but I must admit it took a prompt from the world wide web for me to remember that skill. thanks to katherine over at making chicken salad, it's a skill I can now pass onto my grandchildren :)
I made some of these for Melita's party to hang round the room, out of a really cheap multi coloured ball of acrylic from wallmart, and I was really happy with how they turned out. it's a great way to pass the time on road trips, or when you just can't keep your hands still (does everyone have this problem?)
