So this is a knitting blog? Welll I am Melissa an average knitter, but I love to knit. Some might say I am obesessed with it (and they would be right). I have projects planned for months maybe years in advance (but something always pops up and I have to break into the schedule).
I am currently working a shawl for Christmas for my stepmom and have 2 more shawls planned for Christmas (and 4+ pairs of slippers and a few hats and maybe a child's sweater...)
That is all for now, I need to figure this blog thing out! :)
