I have three grown children. I recently became a grandmother to a precious little boy, Diego. I work from home. My hobbies vary from doll making, home decor, and teaching sewing. I have just recently taken up knitting.
Thank you! I love photography...not very good at it, but I try! I think you'd like Ravelry. My sister in law is on there too and she does the same as you with the knitting groups but says she wont go anymore because she misses my brother because she's away from him and because it's more chatting than stitching. On ravelry her name is bettagirl and mine is BirdieG if you want to look for us! The only group I've joined there is the guinea pig lovers group.
See you 'round!
You're welcome! Congrats on your new grandaby & learning to knit! I've been learning on & off for a year too. I joined Ravelry. Are you on there as well?? Lots of people there who can help if you get stuck!
I bought a serger about a year ago and in their instruction manual it said to avoid black thread if possible. I thought that was odd since I sew a lot in black thread. They recommended using a very dark navy blue instead. I of course disregarded their advice and have had no problem with black thread in either of my sergers. Maybe with some kinds of machine this IS a problem. Hope this helps - if not I hope you know there are people out there who sympathsize with you anguish. I too have fought with machines until I just threw the project down and went and bought a new machine. Laurie
