Hi. I just learned how to knit. I work at Michaels (teach cake decorating) and I've always loved the knitting instructor's work. So, I finally took her class. I only had time to figure out how to cast on, knit stitch, and bind off. So I came here and learned purling and I'm working on adding stitches and changing colors and all that fun stuff. I'm currently knitting a simple blanket for my BIL's baby due in 1 1/2 weeks! I have a "scarf" that I'm learning new things on. I doubt anyone will wear it, but I like to practice techniques before I do them for real! I learned purl on it and tried stockinette there too so it looks really silly
Anyway...I'm mostly a stay-at-home mommy to Grant (3) and Jared (1). I'm in Kansas City, MO. I'm already planning on blankets for everyone I know for Christmas gifts! I'm cheap and I hate shopping- especially for others- so I can't wait to start giving my knitted items!
