Ranjana – had an intense flirtation with knitting as a schoolgirl

No one knitted for me when I was growing up as I came from India and it wasn’t required.  I didn’t even understand woolly things until I got here.   Woolly things were bought in shops, everything we had up until then was cotton or silk.  I’m not even sure if my mum knew how to knit.

Jen P – appreciates others’ expertise

Whatever we were doing on Saturday we would stop at 5 o’clock and watch Robin Hood.  We’d sit on the sofa, and if it was winter we would be covered up with a blanket and we would have something we’d been eyeing up all day; a little bottle of orange juice.  Then we would be knitting, my sister and I, my mother too.
