I started knitting again when my first granddaughter, Penny was born; I had knitted for my children before that but did not seem to have much time. Now I am knitting for three grandchildren, Miss P, her sister Quinn and her cousin Paddy. I always have something on my needles and a few WIPs that I really mean to finish. I love knitting soft toys for my P's and Q ; oh, go on then, I love knitting soft toys for family, friends and even for me. I like a challenge, a new technique or KAL or new yarn or a commission will always get me going. The one thing I need to do is get control of my stash and try to remember the projects I was going to make with it before I got distracted by something new.
