Returning to Knitting===Hopefully!

My father was raised in a catholic orphage during the depression---everyone had to learn eveerything so---my father taught me to knit as a child. It has been YEARS since I've touched knitting needles and think I can still manage the basics. MY daughter is expecting our 2nd grandchild and if she has a girl (or a boy) I want to knit something for the baby. Would love to do a thick soft and plush baby blanket, sweater, hat and booties---but as I said I may be acting a bit too ambitious.

Looking forward to knowing everyone!!

Welcome to KH!

Grab your needles and jump right in.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
