I have been cross-stitching for almost 20 years, but it's so hard to get all my stuff out and quickly put it away with little ones about. I have 2 grown children and 2 little ones still at home. I also watch my 1-year-old grand-daughter four nights a week. I saw a facebook friend's photos of things she's knitted and I thought, "That's it! I have to learn to knit. The hats and sweaters are gorgeous, and I can't afford to pay someone to make them for me!"
I love this site! I can't read instructions (even with pictures) and figure things out. The videos have been so helpful. I made a coaster and I'm going to try to bind off tonight.
