You might be wondering why my user name is Knitting4Hope. The Hope part refers to my hope chest. I have an ongoing list of useful items that I will knit, crochet, sew, or make some other way by the time I get married. (Hopefully). Some of the items on my list includes sweaters (for ages newborn - 12 yrs), hats (ages newborn - 6 yrs), socks (ages preemie - 5 yrs), mittens (ages newborn - 8 yrs), dishcloths, knit towels, rugs, and blankets/afghans. There are more items on the list, but I won't list them all.
If you are not sure of what a hope chest it, let me give you a brief explanation. "A hope chest is a tool to show skills completed & lessons learned in preparation for marriage. The completed hope chest is a sign a young lady is ready for marriage." Hope chests are made up of useful items that are carefully made by a young lady in preparation for her future marriage. It can be anything from a simple cardboard box, to an elegant chest. So that's a brief explanation. If you what to learn more you can go to this website: http://www.hopechestlegacy.com/
I've been knitting for over 7 years now, but I hadn't done much the first 2 years. Now I am trying many new and more intricate things. For example I started to make baby socks last year. I am also making the Lace Chuppah from the Interweave Knits Summer 2007 Issue.
That is about it. :)
