As you can see from 4 samples of my work they do get used and do last a long time. Now is the time to get going again. I actually did start to knit a jacket for my self last winter but that is in the trunk and i did start and nearly finished a crochet vest in a light denim blue cotton/bamboo yarn....but i am now at the gym and actually concentrating on my weight and health so i hope to lose some weight. Thus clothing items are now on hold. I can make rugs, cushion covers, hats, scarves, art etc etc... instead.
