I can't wait to work those sets up for the er, ahem
...girls...in my family. Only one of us qualifies as a girl, being a teen. The rest of us are girls at heart.
We have 6 of us in a house that is only 2 bedrooms plus a Sun porch. The porch is closed off and the 2 teenage girls share it, the boys share a room, and of course Jeff and I share a room. We have absolutely no space for storage, so I am seriously limiting myself. I have a large reusable grocery bag I keep my yarn in, so I can't get out of control. Lol! I've got a baby blanket I want to make for my niece, so no yarn til it's done. Once I'm a sure this isn't a flash in the pan hobby, Jeff says he will find a way to store yarn etc for me. This way I can't go yarn wild like I want too!
Can't wait to see your FO' s!!
The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster.
Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.
Blocks in Blocks Afgan for Taz
Pet snuggles for charity
BonBons fingerless mitts for Sarah
Dorm socks for Skye-
Dallas Cowboys Man Hat for John-
and as always, dish cloths.
