:lol: It's a nice morning here in Cedar City today. Not very windy yet. My name is Pamel. I have been knitting since I was 17 yrs. old. That's 34 yrs. now. However, I don't consider myself anything more than an advanced beginner-- :mrgreen: I still need to teach myself how to knit cables and intarisa. I have been afraid to learn those two techniques all these years. I know I have been missing out on some really great patterns that way. I re-taught myself to knit following my stroke in 1997. I taught myself to knit with dpn's and circulars. So I should be able to do the others. I have Fibromyalgia and Menieres. So I knit to keep my fingers nimble. Glad to be here.
