well, I am a new kid on the block and very excited to be! I have already started my apron and I have to say it is fun to make an apron for an "unknown" friend. A few months ago my knitting group went on a retreat to Seattle. We had a surprise bridal shower for my daughter and as a special surprise my girlfriend and I made 14 aprons as gifts for them! What an adventure, lots of "way past midnight" nights!
