Hi. I popped in one day to take a look and, guess what, I decided to stay. This is a really neat place. I love that there doesn't seem to be any discontent here. Love that.
I'm an old bird and I have been knitting for about 55 years. My mother taught my sister and I how to knit, and we use to sit in the livingroom in front of the fireplace and knit for hours. My father dubbed us the Knit Wits and we thought it was cute.
I love sharing new patterns and new ideas. I plan to do the KAL as often as I can. Love the tips that are coming my way, and plan to put them into action. I seldom stick with the pattern. Love changing the design, or making shortcuts that help me to finish sooner. Will make a garment seamless, as long as the pattern will allow for it.
I'm so happy to be here, and hope to get to know all of you. Very Happy

You are right, this is a really uplifting group, and whenever somebody get a bit grouchy, we let her/him vent and then we talk about knitting again.
Welcome to the group.
