Hi All,

I am not new, but after a good few days of searching and not a bit of luck I've decided to re-register. Sorry Mods! I don't want to swell the numbers needlessly but I also just was able to come and play again as you all are so irresistible!

I am Roberta/Birdy, formerly of the Stratford area. We recently bought our first house. It is a whole 5 minutes from my hubby's work instead of the 1 hour 15 minutes of our old house.

So my sewing machine has been doing a lot of work right now. While I'd like to knit curtains I've faced the fact that I would be long bored with that project!

I'm still Homeschooling the darling children, the boy and the girl.

We've only got 2 cats now, the pet cow came along in another form (sorry vegetarians, but hubby is not!), the dog found a new home and the chickens are no longer our responsibility. We miss our doggie dearly, but felt that since he was 7 years a farm/country dog he would have a happier life with a retired couple that offered to adopt him than in our inch of yard we now own.

We moved in June 2nd and I unpacked the last box this past Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday last week saw me sewing the curtains. And every single other mending job my kidlets decided I simply *had* to do right then and there.

So that is about it. I've found the time (err, insisted upon finding the time) to pass a few round on the socks. I also decided to muddy the water and started a filigree crochet project because my Great Aunt gave me her collection of crochet things and I wanted to see if I enjoyed it before I accepted the gift. I do.

That will be enough of an update for now. The Kidlets are demanding another chapter (well, they've up'd it to 4 chapters) of Charlie and the Glass Elevator so I MUST go now!

My nephew just had a new baby and I would like to make a little hat someware I saw a tomato hat does anyone know were I could find that pattern if it's not to hard for a rookie.

Hi Betsy, welcome. I'm going to copy your post to the Pattern forum under the title "looking for tomato hat pattern." So have a look there later today.

Just arrived
I'm new on the site. I used to spin and knit but just drifted away from it. One of my daughters started to knit again and so I jumped back in. It is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon with an adult daughter. Now my other daughter has joined the fun and we spend time knitting, drinking coffee and combining efforts to keep the children in the family on the path to a happy life.
I also am a basketmaker.
Have a perfect day!!!

Take the yarn you've been knitting with and thread it back through the loop. You can then weave the end into the knitting.

Welcome I used to make baskets too but knitting has pretty much taken up my free time for the past couple of years.
