Hi I'm Melissa, and I am a regular here at Hooks and Needles. I first came into the shop in May '07 with my Girl Scout Troop. I hardly knew how to knit or purl and Kaylee taught my troop how to make a washcloth. Since then, I have made a varaity of projects, including: 2 pairs of socks, a hedgehog, a ton of hats, and many other things.
Getting back to my brother, he is a soldier in the Army, and at Christmas he asked for a bright red hat with a big pom pom on top. I used the Stitch n' Bitch Nation Basic Cable Hat pattern with Cascade 220 and he loved it. Now, he wants me to make him two more.
So I've got to get to knitting, more later!
