Hi all,

My name is Rose, I'm 56 and I have been knitting for at least close to 50 years, its frightening when you think about it.

At the moment I am knitting for a baby, its a little girl and she is my best friend's grand-daughter in South Wales.

I also knit premmie booties for the Royal Women's Hospital, as I was there when my son was born, so I feel like its the least I can do.

I have two children and am married, I also have a Lhasa Apso and four cats.

I emigrated to South Australia with my family from South Wales when I was 14 and have lived in Melbourne since 1978.

Knit in peace and harmony.

Hello and welcome, Rose. It's lovely that you knit for preemies. I have had one myself, and I know that warmth is a must. We look forward to hearing more about your knitting adventures. Very Happy

Ooo, teeny weeine hats, booties n shirts. How lovely of you and talented to be able to work such small pieces.
I guess if I had stayed with knitting all these years I'd be better at it but, alas, life got in the way. Kudos to you for working to care for the babies of others.
Welcome to this lovely little knitting corner of the e-world. I hope you will enjoy visiting here often.
