HI from Nanaimo! I'm still kind of "new" to knitting - used to do it years (and years and...) ago but never anything too hard lol. My gdaughter rekindled my interest in it last year (she was 12), and now I'm loving it again - mainly knitting for my old dolls. I have a couple that were mine when I was a kid. My Mom kept them in a box for me all those years when I'd forgotten they existed. Fun to see so many other Canadians here!
