The Knitwit
Posted On 03/26/2014 14:57:53 by kiwibarb
  I asked my kids what I used to do before the advent of the computer, and they said I did a lot of knitting. Yes, I knitted for everyone; all my own children, some of my nieces and nephews, many of the neighbours, and various family members. There was always something on the needles. I did fair isle and aran knitting, using pure wool, and it had to be carefully laundered to prevent matting and shrinking. When knitting for the neighbours, the only payment I required was that I got to keep t... Read More

Bring and Buy
Posted On 01/11/2014 16:34:09 by kiwibarb
Reading advertisements in a local paper, I came across one requesting donations of items for a fund-raising sale for a club. This brought to mind the Bring and Buy events of my childhood. You brought something and it was hoped you would buy something. From memory, neither the bringing nor the buying was mandatory. You could attend and just look, but nearly everyone would enter into the spirit of the thing and participate. These days the clubs like to acquire the goods in advance, so they can s... Read More
