Welcome Arlene--I'm so glad you got the cds!
I did too--before I got DSLs I really needed them because they loaded too slowly Now that I have DSLs I enjoy the computer more, but I'm glad to have the cds at my disposal. Amy's wonderful at showing how to knit.
I crocheted for nearly 35 years, and I love to knit so much more. I think knitted items always come out softer than crocheted no matter what yarn is used. I'm 55--and obviously-you're never too old to learn something new. Especially when it gives you so much pleasure. :D
