  1. Hello from Mississippi! I mostly use acrylic; cotton for potholders and dish clothes. I've used a bamboo blend for scarves that had a really nice feel and drape.
  2. Hello from Mississippi! Practice is what it takes. In no time you be making all kinds of things.
  3. That's the kind of "I forgot" that I like. LOL
  4. I'm on the last round of Mary's sweater and have used 4 skeins, so I'm back to 0.
  5. Hello from Mississippi! Nice projects and real cuties wearing them.
