Is the Tuesday night SnB group still going on? I tried to send an email, but it was returned as a non valid email. I would really like some info on when, where and do you have to be a member. I would like (as well as my daughter and a friend of mine) to attend. Thank you.

Stitch N Bitch : New Orleans

I am a newbie knitter from NOLA. I have been knitting for maybe a year, but do to lack of stash and funds, I have only managed a few FO. Scarves and such. Currently working on my first hat. I want to branch out. The stash is growing bigger, I have read your posts, might I applaud your works, soooooo beautiful. All I can think is, "I wanna do that too" I have visited websites recommended on this page and gaze longingly at the patterns wanting to make them all.

Now, I have read about recycling yarn from sweaters, I figured out how and what I am supposed to do, just not into what. I had to go to Goodwill last night, I found this stunning sweater 75% Marino wool 25% Angora Bunny Fur, color deep red. Damn thing is a small, I have the chesty issue. I am gonna frog it, but I need to figure out something to with it. it is too beautiful not to. Any suggestions. I love these two, but I dont know if I am ready enough yet. lol
