I, too, am from Spokane, but on the South Hill. I've been knitting since I taught myself in my early teens, but my Aunt Linda had to show me how to purl -- it was the only thing I couldn't quite grasp from a book and it was just about the last thing she had to do with knitting!
I've been enjoying your newsletters for sometime, now, but haven't posted until now and that's because I'd like your help.
The other day you have a newsletter come out with a pattern for a "Bridal Shrug". I loved the pattern and want to try my hand at it, but I accidently DELETED THE EMAIL!!! Can you send me that pattern or tell me where I can find it online?
I love hearing about your experiences with knitting and your tidbits about your family along with the hints and patterns you include. Keep up the good work!
