Profile Information

:)  I have just seen my first mention on the list of items that have arrived. Not my biggest parcel count but it does feel good!

It has taken a while, so all new comers, please be patient, they do arrive, but obviously everybody is so busy, which in itself is good.

Thank you very much for the warm welcome  I have just finished a 3year old's jumper to p[lace in my box south Africa. Because it is freezing here on the southern tablelands in NSW Australia it is a good day for knitting so I'm sitting in front of the fire knitting my first square. I,m not good with photos So you will need to patient to see anything

Regards Mary

Hi Carol

Thank you kindly for your welcome.

I've been volunteering for Knit-A-Square for about a month now.  I help unpack and bundle each week, and answer the correspondence.  In my spare time (the little there is) I knit too, albeit slowly.

It's been such a pleasure to be involved in an effort that makes such a difference.

Hi Carol,

Thank you for your kind welcome. I'm so impressed by the fantastic range of squares knitted, though I'm still having trouble getting the size right! I'll have a look at the UK group in a moment.
