My name is Shirley. Named after my mother's love of the film star, Shirley Temple. So this should tell you that I am a 74 yr old senior citizen who has taken up knitting again after many, many years of family and career activities. I am a self-taught knitter and look forward to the excellent information available on KnittingHelp.
I too am a self taught knitter and picked it up recently after years of crocheting. I have just finished my first sweater for my daughter. I did an easy sweater pattern free download from the LionBrand website. I am very proud of it. She wore it to work on Friday and got so many compliments! Yiphee! Can't wait to hear about some of your projects.
