Did I See your Mum Knitting at The Carleton Place Farmer’s Market?

Standard

A very long time ago my late Mother used to knit me sweaters. I think I remember each one, and the button front cardigan with a figure skater on each side was my favourite. No one makes sweaters like that anymore, and  did you know there is someone carrying on the knitting tradition at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market every week? No, it wasn’t your Mother– but no other than spectacular knitter Christina Fenton!

The traditional knitted slippers have evolved but how comfy do these look?

To heck with the mini-me fancy dancy shoes for baby- let’s go back to tradition– in a 2015 way.

Knitting is a transformative and intriguing act that can change the life and brain of the person doing it, and that knitting is a perfect metaphor for life and insight into some better ways through it.
