Need new knitting buddy

Poor me, my sis who knits moved to Oregon and got married. And sadly, I buried a cousin two weeks ago who was a lifetime knitter. Any guys in the northern michigan area who knit?

Swallowtail Shawl

Well, done with this finally. Wasn't nearly as painful as I had expected, though I have to say the bind-off was sort of excruciating. Not because it was hard, it was just...endless!

The Trouble with Life Lines....

So I finally made my foray into lace knitting. It really wasn't supposed to happen, you know. I was going to knit things I could use. Scarves. Hats. Socks. Especially socks. You know, MANLY things.

Teaching Again

Several months ago I was asked to teach beginning knitting at a new craft store in my area. The class went well and I was hoping to get a few gigs there occasionally.
