Last year I had a total nervous collapse (stress after caring for Alzheimers husband for quite some time.) I'm almost ashamed to admit this because I've always strutted around saying "I'm a capable, competent woman..."; it's a shock to find you aren't any more! A friend asked me to knit a baby jacket.. using a pattern I've used several times in the past, and it is NOT a complex pattern... medium difficult I would say. And I have been knitting since I was 3 yrs and 4 months old... I'm now 83!!! and I am horrified to find that I just can't follow the pattern correctly now... I've made 8 starts and have done 8 complete undo's! I was unutterably sad to contemplate the thought that I'd "lost" my knitting abilities (nowadays I only knit items for my favourite animal sanctuary/rescue/rehome charity to sell to help raise funds). Luckily I tried crocheting (which I didn't learn till I was mid-20s). Hooray! Thank goodness! I can still manage crocheting!!! So can still make things for the animal charity to sell!
