This is my first blog, I thought I would give it a try. I love talking to people.
I was going to try to come up with 100 things about me, but couldn’t think of that many. :roflhard:
I am a ‘stay at home’ mom of 4. Two of which have left home in the last 6 months. So I still have 2 teenagers (one boy, one girl) still at home.
At one point I was a hairdresser, but after I started having the kids it didn’t pay to work and put them in daycare. My hubby was having to pay for my gas to get me to work. :-x (By the way we have been married for 25 years).
I have only been knitting for about a week, but I am getting the hang of the basic stitches. My biggest on-going problem is keeping the yarn too tight, and changing my mind on what I want to knit. :teehee: I have set a goal for myself - to make two book end covers for my daugher at college before we go up there this weekend. Maybe that will help me actually finish something.
I would like to ask: as far as buying materials as a new knitter what would you suggest? (needle sizes, yarns, accessories, etc.)
