I'm not very confident when it comes to knitting but I loved this heart and gave it a go. It turned out lovely and I have hung it on my wardrobe door...looks really pretty.

What does the term "nil" mean? I found this while looking at the kimono baby cardigan and could not figure out what it meant. Thanks for your help. Lois Witchey
