Greetings from ME

It's been a while since I visited this site, but my surfing brought me here tonight so I thought I would say "Hello" from Maine.

Speaking of knitting, I FINALLY got my knitting act together enough this week to start a Project. I sorted through all of my boxes of yarn/projects and decided I would finish one of the 4 sweaters that are ½ done….got them out, sorted through them (why the hell did I take out those needles? Where’s the pattern? Where’s the extra yarn? UGH!)…flash forward through 3-4 hours of fondling yarn and I finally decided it would be easier to start a new sweater. (Surprised?)…next night…paw through yarn, find patterns, hunt down needles…finally, two nights ago I sat down to knit and am on my way to making Bob (my husband of 5 years) a sweater….I decided I was going to make a simple sweater (one color for ribbing, one main body color) so that I could knit and get caught up on my Netflix movies at the same time…So far, so good…I did have to take a normal sweater pattern and re-wrote it to make it simpler. I’m hoping that like my socks, I end up with ‘one simple pattern’ I can use for all sizes of sweaters….

Sweater Pictures soon....

Good to see you again. Looking forward to hearing how the sweater turns out.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Hello Jerry and welcome back. Like the helmet you are wearing (I'm sure there a British name for it) Good luck on your sweater.

Strangely enough the British name for it is 'helmet'.
