I've posted for help a couple times so I guess its time to introduce myself. I'm Janis, a 40 yo SAMH of 5, boys aged 22, 11, and 4, and daughters 16 and 14. I'm engaged to the love of my life, Jeff, and the girls and the 11 yr old our our kids. We split for 6 yrs and I had a baby with someone else, then we got back together so we've truly got a blended family. I've wanted to learn to knit for about 10 years now (Debbie Macomber books got me interested) and finally started to teach myself about 2 weeks ago. I'm so glad to have found this site, and hope to make many friends and be here a long time!
