Enjoying my knitting lessons

In 2014 I decided to take the plunge and start taking knitting lessons and I can tell you that I have never regretted it.

It all comes down to having a great teacher who is not afraid to work with me despite my blindness. Miko is fun. She is extremely creative and nothing stands in her way. Her assistants are also extremely helpful and encouraging and I am happy to report that for the Fall of 2015 we will be embarking on a project to make bunnies for babies.

My knitting lessons are so much fun, so enjoyable, and they absolutely clear my mind of clutter.

Knitting for me is relaxing and something to do with my hands when I simply just want to sit and vegetate, as they say. It comes easy to me and I have learned how to fix stitches, drop stitches, plus so much more. Knitting, as they say, is barrier free to me as a blind person and I am looking forward to continuing to work with Miko.

If you live in Toronto then why not drop by her Purple Purl store? Give her a call at (416)364-1162. Her store is in the Leslieville area.

Dear Readers:
This is a personal request from me for you to join my campaign against bullying (CAB).

In 2012 I launched my own campaign against bullying in response to appeals from friends and associates. I decided to try something new and here it is.

You can support my campaign against bullying (CAB) and in return for your valuable contribution I will send you a thank you gift. Visit to learn more. I will use all contributions to promote workshops to help others protect themselves from bullying and teach them how to launch their own anti bullying campaigns.

In addition, I will produce blogs and podcasts to help me spread my campaign and to convince others to do the same.

You may also visit my online store at and browse through my selections.

Help me to stop the spread of bullying and to show others how to combat bullies.
