Just wanted to say hi. My mom taught me to knit 3 years ago and I
struggled with it. Then the next year she tried to teach me to
crochet. I didn't like working with just one needle. This year I

ambitious. I picked an "easy" pattern out of the Woman's Day
knitting special thinking I could do it. I don't have circular
needles (I almost spelled it "kneedles!" LOL). So I thought I
could "halve the recipe." Ugh. Nope. So I have this long narrow

Well, since I've blabbed on long enough...I look forward to your
knitting mentoring in the future! (And yes, I normally am chatty, so
