Thanks Ladies for welcoming me! :mrgreen: I look forward to getting to know you lovely ladies and learning more and more about knitting. :XX:
About four years ago a friend of mine taught me how to make handmade soap from scratch. (not melt and pour, but the real stuff). We needed to have something more natural for our sensitive skin. For about two years I made that stuff non stop. Sold lots of it, too. But, then I realized that that was not what I wanted to do with my time, day after day, week after week, year after year. Yes, I do still make a 100% goatmilk soap for us, but just got burnt out on making so much for others. It took up so much of my time and left me little energy to teach and just be with my children.
Being that I love to create, I longed to do something,. I had bought all that yarn over about five years to crochet. I've known how to crochet since I was six, but honestly it bores me. :rollseyes: I had wanted to learn how to knit for so long. And, well, I am so glad to have discovered how much I enjoy it! And my daughters enjoy it very much, too.
So, thank you again, and I hope to be a part of this community for a long, long time! :mrgreen: (my favorite smilie!)
P.S. Good to see you, Kaye! How positively neat that you homeschool, too, and only a few hours from us.
