I have always knitted or crocheted off and on for most of my life but never really got into it until recently. I started to like knitting a lot when I made a cowl for my best friend Julie for Christmas. After I made that, I decided I wanted to try something a little more difficult... lace. :-o I found this pattern on Ravelry and went at it. It took a couple of tries in the beginning, but now, I love it! I think I'm hooked on lace knitting. :-) And, the orange color is perfect for the school I am transferring to. I love it!
