I made a newbie knitter mistake.

    Do you rememberwhen I was in the hospital? You made a doll with glasses a a pair of needles. The needles were toothpicks. They are exellent to knit clothes for dolls with. Have you tried that? It also takes a long time, which is what you have when you fly overseas. Enjoy your vacation, dear.
