Introducing myself

Hi everyone,

I'm new here, and new to Hanne Falkenberg. I've just ordered my first kit this week; DaCapo no 8. I am now waiting impatiently for it to arive!
I've just re-discovered knitting this winter. I learned knitting as a child from my mother. Knitted my first pair of socks when I was at primary school. During my teens I knit a lot of sweaters. But then I stopped. Knitting wasn't the 'fashion' anymore and I had other hobbies. But this winter I discovered a site with beautiful knitted socks, and I decided to give it a try. Since then I've not been able to stop! But now it's time for something else and that's how I stumbled onto Hanne's creations.

I am really impressed with the things you've all made. Seems to me that a lot of you are working on the Mermaid at the moment. I've seen some beautiful pictures. You can all be very proud of yourselves!

Hope to join you all soon as a real Hanne Falkenberg knitter.

Tessa

I thought it was a familiar accent :)

has your HF kit arrived yet?

I noticed you're a quilter too! so am I, although since I've started knitting again I hardly find the time to quilt.
