This is our happy group of knitters at the Redwoods in Mill Valley.
Sara Oliver and her handbags. She comes every Thursday for 2 hours, inspects the results of our knitting and doles out yarn. We are the happiest group in this place (300 seniors live here). Among the newcomers, our first question always is: Do you knit? as we're always looking for new knitters to join our productive group (click for more pictures of us and of Sara's handbags).
There are about 10 - 20 knitters in our group that includes 2 men. One man had never knitted until last fall when his grand-daughter taught him how to knit. When he found he had 56 knitted pot-holders in a drawer, he joined Sara Oliver and is a great producer.
I've been knitting for Sara Oliver Handbags for over a year now and the experience has changed my attitude. I love getting up in the middle of the night to knit. I am legally blind and with my magnifying lens attached to a nearby piece of furniture I have two hands free to speed along.
