All Required Crocheting is complete....

Pictures to follow (son has my compact flash card reader and I can't upload them right now. Will do so SOON!!)

Now, I can begin to teach myself the fine art of knitting - thanks to my friend, Dorothy, who sent me delightful and fine fibers -- already long stitch cast on and first row knit -- so that I can transfer them to my size 11 needles and practice with fine fibers (I'm a Red Heart girl with a crochet hook!). She also sent me (thank you, thank you, thank you) the adorable Hedgehog pattern - for when I know what I'm doing... though I'm a bit like her son and may just jump into them. I believe he quoted Ann & Kay:

Remember: no project is too ambitious if you crave the result enough.

I approach many things with that attitude... why not knitting? (see this space in a week when I'm pulling my hair out because I can't figure anything out!!! :))

Pictures next time, my friends.

OMigod, those hedgehogs are totally adorable.

If you have any knitting questions, I'm sure all of us out here in cyberland have some answers for you :)

Well, Zach's almost finished with his hedgehog and it is way cute. really, the hardest part is all the counting. the actual knitting is straightforward.

happy knitting!
