My name is Charlene and I live in Lakeside CA. Many years ago I did a bit of crocheting (back when poncho's were very popular) but had never knitted. About two years ago I took a two hour beginning knitting class at a local Michael's store. I have been hooked every since. I recently finished a year long class at an Adult School. We knitted 48 squares for a blanket. It is beautiful...and most of all I learned to cable and just a multitude of different types of stitches. I am going to be a first time G'ma in Oct of 2007. I am 54 yrs. old and I have never been so excited. Now I know what made me take up knitting. I have been busy making baby blankets and booties and am currently working on a bib. I am having trouble with the "shaping" as we didn't learn this in school as we just did the squares. Does anyone have an easy to follow pattern for a toddler size bib? Hope to enjoy this list and thanks for reading my long introduction!
