I pretty much lurk by choice. I am not anti-social, I just kind of prefer to hang back till I decide otherwise. I don't drive much any more, absolutely not at night, and was mostly trying to get back the timing of knitting and find out how to use the newer techniques.
The baby hats requested of me are for charity, and I really ought to make myself useful! I'm 81, and don't have either the energy or the ambition I used to, but thought surely I could tackle something simple like this! But, alas, I must have have lost or given away my old lovely bone needles, and these slick aluminum ones are a challenge. So far, it isn't as fun as it used to be!
I appreciate your response and invitation to get involved even if I don't for awhile.
