Continuing the Legacy

Knitting is a skill that has been passed down through the generations in my family. My great grandmother was a knitter, as was my grandmother and my mother. I am a knitter, and I have taught both of my daughters to knit.

I am proud to show you the work of my youngest daughter, Kristy (Kristo on Ravelry). This is her first attempt at intricate lace with the dreaded "nupps". She did a wonderful job! This is "Swallowtail" knit in hand dyed silk and is destined to be a gift for a very special lady.
