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!
But set it all aside in time for the fireworks show my son gave us
this one was a photographic accident and I love it!
We had a wonderful day.
