About Lee Gant
Being a bit of a rebel helped me when I was told for most of my young life that I would never amount to anything. Guess what, Dad…you were wrong. I learned how to knit.
Learning things the hard way included dosing myself with a boatload of toxic substances in an effort to find a more comfortable frame of mind. During these tumultuous years I forgot to knit. During my recovery, I discovered a new concept; I had choices.
While I worked at the yarn store, you… the customer… praised my knitting skills and told me that you liked me. Learning to accept praise was one of those aforementioned choices, and my confidence grew with each new friend. You let me solve your knitting puzzles, teach you new skills and grow your confidence. My world grew happy.
Now a published knit wear designer, I opted for one more choice; sharing what I know with others in the hopes that they too, will find comfort and well being through the simple action of wrapping yummy yarn around a stick. Through the accomplishment of making something with their hands, if at least one person feels better about themselves then my mission will have been accomplished.
Oh, and one more thing…I decided to write it all down. I’ll let you know when the book comes out…
