I've been knitting for about 2 years. I've only knit scarves and afghans. My next project is a baby blanket as my daughter is expecting our first grandchild in September! After I finish that, I plan (and need to stretch my skills) to learn how to knit baby things like: booties, hats, layette items, etc. I want my grandchild to be dressed in style. I then need to move into making myself a sweater. Even though I didn't learn to knit until I was 51, I want continue to grow in my skills. I tend to not stretch myself, but with encouragement and now, my new grandbaby, I will force myself to move ahead to improve my skills. Eventually, I want to learn to crotchet. I look forward to reading everyone's comments and to ask for help and advice.
