Thank you for all the kind messages...I am sorry I have not replied before now but I have been trying to get my mother settled into a Healthcare Center the past couple of days. She is the reason that I have taken up knitting - she use to do beautiful work before she was diagnosed with Alzheimers. Kelly is a great and very patient teacher and I always look forward to spending time with her when I am in Chicago. Her dogs are wonderful friends and her husband is great. The only dirt I will share about Kelly at this point is that she doesn't know the difference betwwen a golf ball and a tennis ball (just kidding). Sorry Kelly but I couldn't resist!
