My daughter drew a picture of me wearing a beanie and the last jumper my mum knitted for me.
I have knitted dozens of jumpers and socks over the years. I now love to knit rugs. I knitted the rug on my bed; forty nine squares that keep me warm and cosy every night.
Knitting is how I practice mindfulness. It is rhythmic and calming.
Knitting brings out my creativity, I love to experiment with colour and textures.
I walked the Overland Track in Tasmania last year and when I came home, I knitted a rug inspired by the colours in the landscape.
