It may be in the genes
Seems I got some answers about my genetics and arthritis yesterday. I swear sometimes when I put the thought out there...answers come.. SPooky eh?
My Aunty El (elanore) called me yesterday. She's 85, lives in Florida and has never called me.
Seems she is great granny to a premie and wanted to tell me all about the NICU in Florida.
I was able to ask her if she was still crocheting. She said she is, just a tiny bit because of her arthritis. She said she made a popcorn stitch baby blanket 2 years ago......so that means she was able to crochet until the age of 83. WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOO.. Let's hope I have that gene.
I know I have some genes from that side that I'd rather not carry, but that one I'll take.
This is the same side of the family that claims our great great grandfather died while knitting at the age of 104.
Hmmmm seems I may get through my stash afterall....
(currently knitting Van's Twisted Rib Hat in Berroco Comfort. I am doing a little fair isle above the twisted rib. Can you make out the solid green stitches, every 4th stitch? )
Do you have any relatives who knit till they dropped?
I WOULD LOVE YOU TO LEAVE A COMMENT>
