Thank you for your nice welcome to KnittingHelp, Ingrid. So what is experience in knitting? I used to think I was pretty top-notch, what with all those Arans and Irish crochet and creative pieces from babyhood on. But then I got on to the Web and realised I only knew a few ways to cast on, I hadn't an idea of how to knit on four needles, I - but honestly, the shock list lengthened by the mouse click!
Now I think I'm an experienced beginner. But I'm still going to go for that lace crop!
