Hello all! I am in the Southwestern corner of Michigan--in Niles. It's a teeeny tiny little town south of Grand Rapids and Benton Harbor. I live about 30 minutes from Benton Harbor, 45 minutes 9or so) form Lake Michigan, 45 minutes from Kalamazoo. It isn't mid Michigan, but hey, it's still Michigan!
I am a new Knitter, teaching myself mostly through this website, actually. I am currently working on a baby blanket and hat for my niece's new baby, due in a month. I've had the hardest time trying to decide what sort of pattern to use. I think I've decided to just keep it simple and stick to a nice garter stitch. lol Wish me luck.
