thank you both! Yeah, I'm actually liking this. At first, as with anything new I crawled through it but yesterday while making washcloths knitting I sort of missed the crochet hook. Uh oh!
Lots more to do still but it's getting done. I really am glad I found this help and met some really nice people. I love the sweater on the other thread. Gotta go and give a thumbs up.
eta: after these linens etc. I'm going to make those tights I started out here talking about. Got the yarn but not the time yet.
