It took my thirty-seven years to complete a Christmas tree skirt. I started it when my oldest was an infant but when she started crawling around and getting into things, I put my knitting away. I know that when mothers have babies, is when they knit, but that's not me. I focused on doing baby things.
Anyway, once I retired, I took up knitting again and I finished what I started thirty-seven years ago. I'm proud to have finished, but no one seems impressed, except the cat. She loves it.
