Just found this site and am eager to make use of new patterns for old subjects, such as scarves and aghans - I knit solely for charity - learned when I was 3 years old, moved to cross stitch later on as a result of significant vision loss after surgery for a double by-pass at age 74 so I took up my "old" knitting needles, even bought new ones and have not stopped since - am now 81 - do only charity projects but as most of you know, there are a lot of needy people out there - make mostly throws for local Hospice and hat/scarf sets for Head Start groups; thanks for listening and I will be checking in very often - fondly, Jacky

Hi, ladies - how nice it is to be welcomed by all of you - really made my day as I read all of these notes- for the record, I have made approx 50-75 lapghans and aphgans for Hospice and about 900 hat/scarf sets - I am so glad that the Lord blessed me with "working hands" though my legs are not worth much anymore - I have already printed off about 10 scarf patterns from this wonderful site - and I realize that is just scratching the surface - I expect to be checking in at least once a day just to keep up with all of you - have a wonderful day! jacky
