  2. I am another person trying to get through all your programs! I try to keep currant each week, plus five or six older ones each week. I live in Beijing China and you are part of my personal knitting group. I don’t really have any one else who knits here and speaks English. I am still trying to figure out how to buy yarn here, they sell yarn by the weight not buy the ball. Often there is a box of yarn, the amount they think will make a small sweater and the balls are not uniformed sized. I have found some listing of Chinese knitting terms that I take with me when out shopping, but have relied on yarns from the internet for a lot of my yarn. Thanks for helping me keep knitting
