Introducing myself

Hi Everyone.
I'm a knitter, crocheter, quilter and cross-stitcher from Peterborough in the UK. I have sent a few items to a4A in the past and am eager to participate in the latest campaign. I am going to be knitting squares to join together to make baby blankets as it's too hot in the summer to have a whole wool blanket resting on your knee. (Mind you the weather over here is pretty terrible at the moment.)

I will be visiting Florida at the end of August so I hope to be able to stock up on some American yarn. It can be frustrating to find patterns in Worsted weight when it's not available in the shops over here, though I have recently found some UK-based internet sites that stock some US yarns.

I'm looking forward to meeting you all and seeing some photos of work in progress and completed items as these are a real incentive.

It's great to be part of such a caring group trying to make a difference to the lives of women and children living in such difficult circumstances.
Happy knitting and crocheting!
Karen B

Karen, welcome! Maybe you can have yarns from US Websites sent to whoever you are visiting in Florida? Just a thought...
