I have just joined this wonderful site today. I am a self taught knitter and crochet. I am learning new techniques each and every day thanks to u-tube, a couple of lessons, and this site. I am looking forward to everyone's posts and your sharing of experiences. I have a 18 month old granddaughter and each and every opportunity I get, I like to knit or crochet for her. I must admit that as time passes, I am getting better but, I still have a lot to learn. Happy knitting and crochet.
