I used to knit years ago but then life and work took over, but now I find myself with free time and no company (BF is in the military so I'm home alone for several days at a time) so decided to take it up again armed with some cheap walmart yarn. It came back to me pretty quickly although definatly far from perfect. Hopefully now I'll be able to actually finish something! I'm very interested too in knit stuffed animals if anyone has or can point me in the direction to find some patterns! Thanks and wish me luck!
