Hi Sarah!! I am Mary Kay and I live in Texas. I have a short attention span, but that just makes me have way more WIPs going at one time than I should!!! I'll bet you are less of a novice than you think you are...
A big "Hello" from Colorado Springs, Co in the US, ssellis! Welcome to the KF! This a great place for knitting wisdom, knowledge, & friendship. Looking forward to reading your posts here in the forums!
Keep on knitting! The more, the merrier! A balanced diet is a peanut butter cookie in each hand!
