I have been visiting this site for quite some time and found it to be one of the best on the Web.
After three heart attacks and a few other health problems, I decided to retire. I sewed years ago for my two daughters and decided that it would be a good way to occupy myself. My DH is the recipient of several pairs of shorts/pyjamas and once I get over my fear of knits - I hope I can make acceptable garments for my 14year old granddaughter. I'm currently working on the wrap around skirt I found here and I'm sure I'll be making many visits here in the future for the very helpful tips that can be found here.

Hey, welcome kinda neighbor. I'm across the county from you.
So many of us here have started up again after leading busy lives for so long. Along with time we also tend to have a bit more cash than we did back in those days with little children. Makes it even more fun.
It is a great place here on this board.

Hi and welcome Miss Marple,
Good to have you here. Don't be too scared of knits - they're pretty forgiving. Make the first couple of things into sleepwear and by then you'll have got the hang of it.
