Thanks for the welcome!

I, just did the math and discovered I have been knitting for over 40 years......but I still consider myself a novice! I discovered Amy's wonderful, encouraging site soon after she created it. It is a real gift! I bought her CD and am so grateful for her hard work that offers me such practical help again and again whether I am on line or just using the CD off line.

Currently I am trying to master the magic loop method and have started a pair of socks three times so far, but have not given up!

Some friends in northern CA coached me through creating five pairs of socks on double point needles from 2000-2006. [Somehow or other they also talked me into learning how to process wool from sheep to spinning yarn! This past Sunday afternoon I took my Ashford Joy spinning wheel and spun yarn at the Flock and Fiber Festival in Canby, OR near where we currently live. Fun!!!]
