I successfully made the switch to the new blog; now we'll see if I successfully post. I'm Becky from Provo, Utah, on the Wasatch Front of the Rockies. I enjoy knitting and crocheting with my two daughters and my mom and sister when we get the chance. I bumped into a4A doing a google search for knitted baby afghan patterns for my mom. How's that for serendipity!
The a4A campaigns have helped me learn new things and venture into areas of knitting I don't think I would have pursued otherwise, so this is one of those mutually beneficial arrangements. Our whole family has been involved at various times, depending on just how big a bite I'd taken and how close the deadline has been. The men of the family leave the knitting to us girls, but they have gotten really good at weaving in ends when needed.
As luck would have it, I whiled away the time in between campaigns making some baby socks (my specialty, it seems) and some mittens. Should've made blanket squares. Oh well, I think I'm going to tackle making a Stegs blanket. It's intrigued me, but I haven't tried knitting a blanket before--just crocheted one. Does anyone out there who's made a Stegs have any hints for me?
