Linda Forbes

Knitted Baby Caps & Blankets

I often tell people that I am still “growing up”, but I was born and spent my childhood in upstate New York near the shore of Lake Ontario. I first visited these beautiful mountains twenty years ago, and I experienced immediately that this was HOME.

It has taken me since then, twenty years, to get here. I have a little house near the church in Pine Grove and sometimes join in their choir. One of my two sisters lives in the community of Linville Falls.

I usually have at least one knitting project with me at all times, because knitting is portable! I started knitting baby caps about five years ago and have made all sorts of styles and designs. It seems perfect to make hats with the Home of the Perfect Christmas Tree logo and to pair them with matching snowy-white baby blankets.

Linda Forbes began knitting as a child under the guidance of her grandmother, mother and aunts. Since that time, she has dabbled in other crafts but has continued to knit throughout the years.

Linda enjoys spending time with family and being an aunt and a great-aunt to six little ones under the age of eight.
