Eija from Ulvila, among friends known as Krisse, was born in 1952 and has been a Myssy Granny since 2019. She enjoys being a Myssy Granny as it makes her feel useful and it gives her the opportunity to contribute to something meaningful. Eija does not experience knitting as work since it's an important activity with a nice community and that’s what matters the most to her.
Eija learned knitting from her parents and grandparents. She has also continued the tradition and taught it to her children and grandchildren. In her free time she goes to the gym, cares for her grandchildren, tends to her garden and spends time in nature. “Don’t give up!” Eija says when asked about her rules for life. Eija also reveals that her spirit is still wild and free, and that she enjoys her life to the fullest!
