Hi I'm Leon and .... I'm a knitter. Or is it not "that" kind of group?
I have signed on, looked around and found my way here. I live in Wellington, New Zealand.

Baby Surprise Jacket Written out.

So, when I was doing the BSJ, I had a hard time keeping track of all of the decreases and increases, etc. So, I wrote it all out, row by row. I have attached it here if it would help anyone.

Sister's Sweater

Okay....I'm a fool. I opened my mouth and said that I would make my sister a sweater. However, all the stuff that I want to knit, she doesn't like.
