I finally joined in the forum after months of looking over this website! Not too long ago I purchased the Denise Needles from Amy, absolutely love them!
My husband of 15 years and I have two wonderful children, DS (12) and DD (almost 9). I love being able to homeschool the both of them and being able to spend lots of time watching them grow up.
I have always thought it would be neat to learn to knit, but never really tried it. However it was my DD who really wanted to learn to knit. At Christmas I purchased her a knitting kit, and she was thrilled. Between lots of books from the library, a friend's help, and more help from the local knitting store, we both learned to knit! Although my DD is enjoying her new hobby, it was me who became completely enthralled with knitting! I have quickly filled my cupboards with all kinds of yarn, patterns and knitting supplies!
I have finished a variety of simple projects and have several "on the needles". My newest project is my very first sweater, and I can't wait to see how it turns out. I take my knitting everywhere, in the car, on the plane, to church, while I wait for my kids, to the beach, camping... I always have a project with me. xxx Recently I finished a blanket as a wedding gift and was surprised how much the newlyweds loved it. They couldn't believe someone would go to so much trouble to make them a gift!
I am looking forward to being a part of the forum when I can and when I need help (which could be a lot looking at a couple of these patterns I have!). What a great website for knitters!
