Hello and welcome to Two Knit, a blog devoted to the knittings of two, Martha and Eve.
My grandmother, Martha, is from Aregentina where knitting and crochet were a big part of her upbringing and culture. In the early sixties she had a fashion show with her very own knitted designs. Later when she moved to the states she worked at a boutique in Beverly Hills where she created those juliet hats for Ali MacGraw. She was also commissioned by many stars to create one of a kind items such as sweaters, interior decor and dresses. In fact, she created many of the dresses Charo wore on her appearances in Vegas and the Merv Griffin Show.
I am a high school student who began to knit in the first grade at my school. A year or so ago Martha and I decided to open up a knitting shop on Etsy called Two Knit, because there are two of us and I love Shakespeare (it was originally Two Knit or Knot to Knit).
The picture at the beginning of this post is of my grandmother in Mar De Plata, Argentina with a group of her knitting friends.
