Picture for profile

Don't know what I'm doing, but here goes.

Jumping into the Deep End!

Everyone seems to be doing it. :-) But, I'm not much for writing. I thought I'd start my own blog so I can partake in some of the knitting secret pal exchanges that require a blog. Maybe I'll also post some of my FO's, if nothing else but as a reminder to myself that I have actually been productive. I tend to be an "out-of-sight-out-of-mind" knitter once I've give my FO's away.
