50 years of knitting

I decided to interview my friend's mom Casimira Ramirez because I've seen how much love she puts into her knit and crochet projects. She enjoys knitting and crocheting  and whenever she has free time she decides to work on somethng. I have known Casimira for six  years and I have been friends with her daughter ever since. They used to live across the street and it was like a second home to me. She made the decorations for my quinceañera and they turned out great. Casimira has been knitting for 50 years, she learned how to knit in Mexico with a group of older ladies. She has a lot of experience with knitting and crocheting, recently she has done a lot of blankets for her granddaughters.
