Now that I'm working part-time, I have been able to get back to spending more time knitting for all my kids and grandkids. Whenever I get an idea for a project, and can't find the perfect pattern - I just design my own! I love sharing the finished patterns, and hope others might find that my designs are: "Just what they had in mind!"
