Retired R.N. who took up knitting in 1985.
I have won knitting awards at the annual county fair for the last 10 yrs.
I teach knitting, and knit for customers, for charities such as the Mother Bear Project, Chemo Caps for the Breast Health Project'; and the homeless, as well as gifts for family and friends. Occasionally I even get to knit something for myself!
The latest count of my sock knitting is 114 pr.

"Margaret Reinke is definitely the grandma you've always wanted to have to teach you to do something. She is kind, has infinite amounts of patience and will always show you ways to make things easier on yourself so you don't lose motivation to do something. She'll even encourage your endeavors no matter how grandiose or beyond your skill level she may think it might be. LOL (This is from personal experience, but thankfully I manage to surprise her by finishing it!) Granted, she is MY grandmother, so this review could come off as slightly biased. HOWEVER, she has taken no less than 4 hours every single time she has taught me to knit over the years (from age 6 to 29), and FINALLY last year it stuck and the knitting bug bit me hard and I haven't stopped knitting since. She has been there for me online via email, and the phone and shown me endless you tube tutorials for things she can't show me in person (as we have a 300 mile gap between us). She may only have knitting listed here, but she is also an amazing scrapbook artist. Whatever you choose to learn from her, you'll do it with a smile, and she'll have a kind word of encouragement along the way. I don't know what I'd do without her patience, knowledge or tutelage. xoxoxoxoxoxo Quinn "

"After seeing some of Margaret's beautiful knitting I developed a desire to learn how to knit. Although a complete novice, one brief lesson with Margaret had me on my way to creating my first work. Margaret is patient as well as extremely skilled. Add to that, she has a delightful personality which will put anyone immediately at ease."
