Birgitta is the loved teacher of many knitters, myself included. Years ago after knitting 30+ scarves I wanted to knit something else and learn more. I was lucky enough to find Birgitta at my local knitting store. I started taking classes and she gave me the help and confidence I needed to venture on. Whenever I asked Birgitta if she thought I could do something she said yes and I believed her... so I did it. Another bonus of being in Birgitta's Tuesday morning group was that I met my knitting buddy, Claudia. So here we are on Thursday lucky enough to be knitting together and eating pastries from Hoffman's Bakery at the wonderful store, A New Yarn, that Claudia is now managing. Birgitta's life has led her back to her native country, Sweden, and I can tell you she is missed by many. We are so happy she comes back to visit :)
P.S. Yes indeedy I am holding up a spindle with yarn I spun myself! More on that later.
