Hi Dee. Thanks for the mail. It sounds like you live in a beautiful area, but I bet it has been chilly there. We live at 6,500 ft. right surrounded by 11-12,000 ft. mountains. So winters get pretty chilly here. Glad to hear you have taken up knitting. It is a great relaxer for me. I use to be a school counselor for a local college and now just stay home and am busier than I have ever been. Glad to chat with a fellow Aussie clear from the USA. Good luck with the knitting. Maureen
ps. How old are your children?
