Hi, MrsNovy. Welcome to the forums. It's really great how knitting is something for you and you make something for someone else at the same time! There's lots of help here. We do sometimes get a bit chatty too. Go ask a question!
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
