Sweater 101


 If you are new to knitting or a knitter of decades like me,
you need to check out the free course by Cheryl Brunette called How to Knit a Sweater.
I am using a bag of chunky yarn to knit the class sweater for a child; 
I am learning a lot of tips and tricks-I wish I had had access to this so many years ago
and am glad for it now!
I think that anyone who knits, needs to give her videos a watch-you will pick up something positive, I'm sure!  I enjoyed some knitting time today-
But set it all aside in time for the fireworks show my son gave us
tonight-
this one was a photographic accident and I love it!
We had a wonderful day.
