Sheldon, that's terrific, you're even knitting the *right* way! LOL I knit Continental and for me it's the right way because it works. Your projects look really wonderful. I expect to hear about a baby blanket, sweater, or something soon. How many kids can say that Daddy knitted their first blanket? Crochet is cool too. I'm glad you're also enjoying that. Erin will be lovely in her new hat. She's lovely anyway, what better way to show off your new skills?
