Hello from Texas

I'm Cheryl and I am a 100% service-connected disabled veteran, and so is my husband Michael. Since I no longer work I need to keep busy with all this free time I now have. We share a beautiful home with Sir Angus Seton and Rita our two small dogs. After a 20+ yr. hiatus I picked up knitting again and I am having the greatest time making gifts for others and family. I will be taken classes to learn how to do lace knitting, cables and also socks I learned how to make them on my own!! I have many projects on many needles to keep me busy and when I get bored with one I can work on another. I am looking to learn how to spin and hope to start classes in the fall. Presently I have the following projects OTN: yarn; Spa Sox ~ D. Bliss Cashmerino; Mystery Stole 3 ~ Zephyr Lace yarn in Mahogany w/Czech Glass Beads in Red Rainbow color; Forest Canopy Shoulder shawl in Vintage Silk Maiden & Louisa Harding’s Grace. I just finished a shrug for my daughter’s 28th birthday. I used 3 balls of D. Bliss Soho in #9 Red, which is a silk, rayon and cotton yarn. I also make one of a kind jewelry using sterling silver and semi-precious gemstone beads. I also make stitch markers using Sterling Silver and Swarovski Crystals and other types of beads.
Have a great week,
Cheryl (or my friends call me CW)

Thanks for the welcome. I have already been scanning ebay for some awesome yarn to use for this project and also to gift my pal with! I know it may sound like a dumb questions but whta does SKC stand for. I suffered a head injury when in the Marines and I have slight brain damage. Hence the other reason for knitting it timulates the mind and makes the brain work!!
