My name is Annette, alias ampace, I am a newbie to Knitting Help. I have just picked up my knitting(entrelac purse) again after 2 years. I have been knitting off and on for 25 years but still consider myself an intermediate knitter. I put the entrelac purse down 2 years ago because of frustration and have threatened to put it down again until I joined KnittingHelp. Everyone that has responded to my problem has been wonderful. I am still having problems with the purse but feel confident that I will finally finish it soon with a little help from my friends. Thanks for the input.
