Hi Amanda!
I am so happy to have found your blog! I live in Hobart, Tasmania and have been looking for people around here that love knitting (crocheting and sewing) like me. Do you know of any groups that meet up for a knit and a chat?

Thanks for a good read and inspiration.

Hi Hanna, thanks for your comment! I love knitting (but I am a useless crocheter and seamstress).

Hi there Amanda…

I wondered how old you were! Thought you would be close to my age…I am 28 (born 78)….

Really hope you come to a knitting group one day. I am sure you would get along with us really well (and wonder why you didnt come sooner).

Hi, Amanda! Thanks for visiting my blog. You live in a GORGEOUS part of the world. I visited Tasmania all too briefly in 2003 and would love to come back one day and explore some more. And I share your desire to make a living from knitting. That would be heavenly! 🙂

Hi Amanda,
i like very much your blog.

Regards,
Lily

I think you were born about 2pm.

I love your site!

An additional issue is that video games are normally serious anyway with the principal focus on understanding rather than fun. Although, we have an entertainment aspect to keep your sons or daughters engaged, each and every game is frequently designed to improve a specific group of skills or curriculum, such as math or research. Thanks for your publication.

Hey very nice site!! Man .Beautiful .Amazing .I’ll bookmark your web site and take the feeds also…I am happy to find a lot of useful info here in the post, we need develop more techniques in this regard, thanks for sharing.
