Hi, everyone. I'm Diane and I live in Denver. I returned to knitting four years ago thanks to Afghans for Afghans.
My daughter wanted both a new skill and a service project at her high school. Kate asked me to teach her to knit so she could in turn teach her classmates. I mentored the group and assembled blankets from the mitered squares they made. Only one was sent to A4A (acrylic was banned shortly afterward) but the knitting bug bit again. I have since sent in two mohair/wool baby blankets.
I like mosaic knitting in animal fiber because it makes a nice thick fabric without being heavy. I have two or three books by Barbara Walker with great knit stitch patterns of all kinds. As soon as I figure out my new Kodak EasyShare, I'll post some pictures.
