OT: Introduction/hello
A friend told me about your website--looks great! I grew up with my Mom loving knitting--she had yarn everywhere and loved it. I have many sweaters that she made for me years ago. My sister also knits--she returned to college later in life and used to walk from her apartment to class knitting! I mostly like to make baby /toddler size items.
I have five sons , 6 through 17, they are always overheated and won't wear sweaters.:(
I live in Pennslvania.

Welcome Terri! Five boys and they won't wear sweaters? All that knitting opportunity wasted. :( There are lots of cool hat patterns, at least.

Thank you for your welcome! I was able to get my little boys into sweaters up until age 2-3....then they absolutely refused....I love making baby items so I have done alot of that for others. My mom always made "Christmas stockings" and I was so happy to learn to do that this year. I had a new nephew in November and that was his Christmas gift. Thank you to a knitting friend, she wrote the pattern down for me--I had sent her my childhood Christmas stocking. Right now I am working on a frilly PINK coat and hat for my neice's daughter....
