Hi, my name is Nancy. I just started knitting again after 20 years or so. I started because I purchased a felted knit hat and decided I could do it myself should I want another one. I did that and then started using up skeins of yarn I'd had for years. Made hats for all the kids in the neighborhood before Christmas. Now I'm hooked on socks. I love the colors and love wild socks. I'm a sewer at heart and make totes and purses, but knitting can be done anywhere.

I'll put a pair of socks on here that I just finished.

Nancy

Yes I made the hat. And the flower is felted wool, attached to a handmade doiley. I mainly sew pocketbooks, but I have made some felted flowers, and done a few craft fairs with the pocketbooks, and silk scarves that I hand paint.

soozyb, Where did you find my dog? I have a female that looks just like yours! Please tell me about your baby. Mine is just a little over a year and her name is Hershey Kisses, we call her Hershey-girl. She is on the chunky side and weighs in at three and a quarter pounds. Do you knit for your baby? I make MANY items for mine.....I have 17 (5 are pups). Have a splendid evening.

Good Job. They look like the first pair of socks I knitted. Not my favorite thing to knit. I'm caught up in knitting Baby things because they are in such demand in my family. A baby boom here. Vermont caught my eye as I have family there and I make a trip every year to Chester, Vermont. Love it! I'm in MI and wish I was in Vermont.

Hi from another Vermonter and welcome,
There are close to a dozen of us Vermonters so far on this list and I am sure more to come.
I like your socks. Nice job.
Mary
