Hi! I'm very new to knitting. I took a few lessons a year and a half ago or so at a local shop, but with work and such I hadn't been able to return so I have been doing it on my own. I am going to start my first real project next week --- a baby blanket for my not-yet-born nephew! I picked up knitting again because I am having surgery in a couple of weeks and will be off of work for 6 weeks + pretty much stuck in the house for that time. I figured it gives me something to do. I ordered a bunch of needles in varying sizes today, along with some circular needles. They were very inexpensive, because right now finances are tight, but I read the reviews and I think they'll get the job done for now.
Thanks for letting me join your group here!
