I am saving my biggest mention til last, and if forced to pick one only great knitter (although I am stubbornly not, I am including my whole family) it would be my Grandma. As well as teaching me to knit when I was small she made me this jumper a few years ago:
Check out the cabling detail:
I am not sure I should write this on the internet as it is rude to tell a lady's age but she was 89 when she made that, and is still knitting now several years later. I hope I can do that. Maybe if I have at least 65 more years of knitting I will make it through that favourites queue!
So, although we all have different styles, techniques and like different yarns I definately think we have a great knitting family.
