My name is Mary. I grew up in Ireland at a time when knitting was a part of the culture. Babies had an array of bonnets and booties etc. I can't believe that as a child I was embarrassed to wear hand knit clothes; I envied my peers who wore anything store bought. Now I am an avid knitter, and since becoming a grandma last year, I have become intrigued with various types of yarn. Merino has become a favorite, as well as any Merino blends like silk, cotton, etc. Would like to make more adult items but until I see how sales go, I am sticking to the smaller knits.
