I just found this site - WOW! Spent hours trying to catch up on the projects, hints, etc..... a lively group!
I've been knitting off and on for 18 years. I use to make all the sweaters for my children until they reached the age (early teens) where it wasn't "cool" any more - ugh, but now their lists are longer than mine
I've only made three things for myself - cotton top, vest and a sweater.
I just finished a pocketbook that I am waiting to felt (never done it before and am hesitant to throw all that work in the machine :crying: So for the past week it has been sitting in my knitting bag.
I am currently working on a v-neck sleeveless top (cotton) with a cabled front and only have the front of a sweater (for myself) left to knit.
I always do better finishing projects in a "timely" fashion if I am knitting for some one else or for a gift.
