Now that I am working on my first sweater and have the back done, I am feeling very confident I can knit more wonderful things than dish rags. We'll see. I have to finish the sweater first.

Thanks, Matt. "Practice makes perfect." I've been practicing for 46 years. I should be achieving perfect any day now.
