Yay Yay Yay!!!! I’m so happy and encouraged. Thank you! I love when friends become knitters 🙂 Tell me Ruth, when did you learn to knit? Did you already know the basics (which stitches?) and how was the sweater for you? Fun? Easy? Hard? What’s next?! I have a Milo on my needles right now. I will blog about it when finished. I’ll have to do a blog post on what I have in my future…
you mean…SWEATERS (plural)!! How did the recipient like the blue sweater?

I had tried knitting many years ago. I knew how to crochet, but knitting seemed so hard. I got frustrated and just decided it wasn’t for me. I had not crocheted for long time and a couple years ago picked it back up. I began making little girl hats and posting pictures on my facebook page. Dave Larsen (your uncle?) suggested your site. Thought I might be interested in your products. So, when you first posted this video about dpn’s I decided to try again. This time I was successful!! Between your tutorials and others on youtube, just about anything I needed to learn I could find…but your video was the inspiration….
The sweater was FUN! and I found it easy to follow the pattern, even though some of the things I hadn’t done before…casting on in the middle of project…the slip 2, k2…buttonholes….
Yes! She loved the sweater and now I have requests from others to make one for them!!! I need to make a toddler size, so I’m looking for something similar in a toddler size. I haven’t mastered the art of adapting a pattern to achieve the size I need yet….
I will definitely be looking out for your new posts!! Thanks so much for doing this….
