666Re: [lincolnknitters] Trivia
- Mar 23 4:27 PMI know this is a really old post, but I just got back from Minnesota and I am just now reading it.

I am hopeful to make the next Wilderness Perk knitting group, so I will watch all of you "continental knitters" and see if I can figure out what I am doing wrong. I do think it would be much faster if I ever got the hang of it.

tips and wool yarn. This is the start of khaki Cables, Knitters
