Knitting Dishcloths

Since it's been quite a number of years since I've knitted anything difficult, I've just recently started knitting dishcloths. I belong to several Dishcloth KAL's (knit-a-longs) which have been challenging me with newly learned stitches, etc. I will post pictures here on the blog of some of my work. I'm about ready to break out and learn to knit socks again. I made several pair about five years ago, but need to start all over now. There are several new techniques out there - 2 Socks on 2 Needles sounds like a great idea to me, so that's where I'm going to start. Also thought maybe I could make a simple garment - a vest, or something. Anyway, check back and you'll see how I'm progressing on my new projects.

Beginning As A Blogger

This is my first attempt at creating a blog, so please bear with me. I wanted a place where I could post pictures of my knitting and beading projects, as well as other pictures.

I'm a grandmother of 6 beautiful children aged from 5 to 18 years. Four of them live in Washington State and two soon will be in Pennsylvania. I'm retired from a secretarial career and enjoying living in western Washington with my husband who is retired from Navistar International. We enjoy playing golf, community activites and our church activities.
