If you dont have a wist or pintrest page please consider getting one and pinning items that you would love to recieve. Makes it easier for your partner to see what you like and even some colors you would like

I really wanted to join in this swap, but I think I have bit off more than I can chew in another swap.  I am even postponing joining the Oct birthday swap  until I get more done in said swap, and I've had my wish list done for a while.....maybe if  there's another round in the future I'll be able  to join in. I'm sure it will be a great gallery.

I have started to learn to knit this year too! I am not getting very far with it... So far what I am coming up with looks like hedgehog sick, I just cant seem to get the tension right - either way too loose so it slides all over (including off the needles. boo) or far too tight so I cant even force the other needle into the loop to make a stitch!! Sad
