9.27.2021: Google very recently changed drive links for security reasons, so you may find that when you click on a link for one of my printables that you need to submit a share request. PLEASE only submit one share request per item! These have to be manually confirmed and I will get to them when I get to them. I promise you that sending me 12 requests in rapid succession will not make that happen faster, lol! I do not sit on my computer waiting around to send people instant shares of freebies. Thank you so much for your patience as I try to sort out this latest Google mess.

You learn something new every day...

...and today I learned that having a ball of yarn within reach of a 19-month-old is a big mistake. Especially if the other end is attached to her 6-year-old sister who is trying to learn how to knit.

And that when my gut tells me that this should be the last row for today, so the learner can end in triumph, rather than a mess of dropped and twisted stitches, that I really should just lay down the law and not get talked into "one more row."

And that my method of knitting isn't so weird after all...it's Continental (yarn is held in the left-hand). I taught myself to knit years ago and never saw anyone else knit (in person) holding the yarn in the left hand, so I always thought I was just weird. Turns out it's pretty conventional, just not in English speaking countries, lol. I can't do English knitting, it just feels wrong. Maybe I'm a closet lefty.
