I’ve taken up knitting because I’m expecting a niece and wanted to make her blankets and stuff. So far, I’ve managed to finish a scarf for the sprog and I’m working on a shawl for myself because it’s an easy project, just on a much bigger scale (25 inches or so wide by 70 or so inches long versus six inches wide by 60 inches long for the scarf. I like my shawls nice and big). It’s also nice to keep my hands and mind busy. A friend of Airman’s grandfather is teaching me, so we get to visit once a week for an hour or two, and that’s nice too.
Anyway, I thought it would be nice to get together to share notes and pix of projects, share advice and help, swap patterns and just have a good time.
