That's really cool, Sara! I, too, hadn't been knitting for *MANY* years, but a friend decided she wanted to learn/relearn & dragged me along to the LYS for classes. In searching for something to do as a project that wouldn't break my (empty) piggybank, I found 3 mostly finished (but not quite) sweaters that have been sitting around for years, frogged them & I was off to the races. I love it, cause I'm using big needles; goes really fast & I don't have time to get bored with it; I'm using up all kinds of stuff that's just been taking up space; I'm learning some really cool patterns & techniques that I've never tried before *and* I get to feel good about donating them to Animals in Distress (one of our local no-kill shelters).

If I can borrow a digital camera somewhere, I'll send you some pics before I take 'em over there. I've got 3 or 4 done & 2 more on needles.
