Hello to all you SSK'ers! I'm new to the neighborhood and I joined up becase I often forget to knit for myself.

My name s Lisa and I live in central Arkansas with my husband and sons. I knit alot for other people--family mostly, but occasionally I manage something just for me. Right now OTN is a two tone sweater from the book The Purl Experience. If you haven't seen that particular book, it is definately worth a look. There are three books in the set and all of them are great. I can't remember which, but one of these books has the famous "Einstein Coat" pattern.

Today I knit my oldest granddaughter a toboggan. Poor sweetheart didn't have one so Mimi(I) just had to fix her up. I loosely followed a basic hat pattern, but did alot of custom work so the hat came out very customized and totally CUTE! She'll love it!


I am also a spinner and have always got a conflict going inside my head about should I spin tonight, or knit?? Right now since I'm working on my sweater, I haven't even touched my wheel in weeks. I have tons of raw fleece to work up so I really NEED to get busy washing and carding. Just yesterday, I got a huge box of fleece in the mail to add to my chore list. This newest fleece is just beautiful, so it won't take alot of work to prepare. I just need more hours in my day.
