Hi! I've been knitting since I turned ten years old. I learned the basic stitches from my mom and the rest from reading and research. I love to knit lace. I learned in order to knit lace, and finally made my first piece (a baby blanket for the birth of a friend's first granddaughter). It's forturnate that the child was a girl. I made the blanket in white, but it came out big enough for an evening wrap. I suggested that Betty have it saved for her granddaughter's prom.
I guess you could call me an experimental knitter. My next knitted lace baby blanket was a much more reasonable size.
