Knitting with old folks

SJ from Dunedin has this wonderful tip: “Recently I decided I would like to learn to knit and crochet, and when I was given a big bag of wool scraps, I knew it was time to get started. Instead of buying expensive magazines or getting books from the library, I approached our local rest home and asked if there might be anyone who would be able to teach me. I now receive weekly tuition for free and spend a wonderful afternoon chatting and laughing with the ladies. I’ve also learned how to play Chess with the gentlemen!”
