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.
