No cause steeking can have a purpose but yes it gives me the twitches when I get near yarn with sharp tools.

Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

It just makes me sad to rip it all out. I made them all when she was in the NICU, before I knew she would come home with oxygen and monitors. I'm sure I can make something better out of them, though.

Ask him...I think he's at the age where he can give good input, although he would look really handsome with a foresty green.
