Amy I am so happy for you! I am very happy for us too but this has got to be a very proud accomplishment for you considering it started with just some videos on a little homepage! I don't know that i would be knitting like i am if it weren't for this site. I think it is this site and all the people on it that kept me from getting bored with yet another craft i started.

Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much for giving me yet another site to stalk all day long while i am sitting on the phone with my clients! I get sooo excited when i see that there is a new post...can't wait to see what it is (seriously i get very bored with my clients sometimes...lol)

and just imagine all those people who are still just lurking!

WTG Amy :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:
I'm quite proud of you ;) . You, my sweet friend, have accomplished a LOT in a very short period of time. Yes, I know that you have had help; but the majority of the credit, I'm thinking 99.9999% of it goes to you for all of your hard work on videos, collecting free patterns, very cool (always improving site) and the list goes on. But...most of all I thank you for your love of knitting AND for your love of knitters. :inlove:

WOW, Amy!!!! Imagine all of the knitters you've inspired... if each member has even influenced just ONE person to pick up the needles--and I know for a lot of us it's 3 or 4 or 5 people-- and each of them influences someone else... well, this means you've reached reached KNITTING INFINITY!!!!! :-) Congrats, and thanks for everything.

Okay, here's my little surprise. I've been doing graphics work!

We've got a new CD cover design for our KH CD's, which I love. Much nicer than our old design. It's got the new logo on it finally.

Amy,

That is much, MUCH prettier than the old one! It looks highly professional. Did you do the photography for it?

Thanks DotMom!

Sheldon did all the photography. Including the yarn photo in the cover image (same day he did the photo of our yarn in the site's header). And he designed the new cover, and took a pic of it for me.

CONGRATS, Amy. Love the new CD cover. Can't wait to get one fer myself.

Knit on, my sistahs (and bros).

wow, to think I was number 6 in Nov of last year! WOW! Actually, I remember Amy sending me new videos she hadn't even put up yet because I needed help! Thanks so much Amy! I have learned so much from here and have managed to try and teach other people. To think I am now inspiring people... it's like a chain!

And I'm probably one of the younger ones on here. And started knitting when I was 17 (last year) Now I'm going on 19, and I LOVE to knit!

I went through the typical newbie questions, especially since the person who was near and dear to me (albeit I only knew her for a few months) died only a few months after teaching me about knitting and life. This website has helped me when she couldn't.

I haven't been by here very often lately, but I visit about 2-3 times a week now just to check things out. I've been on a crafty and sewing kick lately. Soon I need to pick up the needles...speaking of which I found a DPN the other day that I had fretted over loosing months ago! I was sooo happy, and where was it?! In a One pounder of yarn that I was using to crochet my carebear!!! ... Somethings tricky tho, cause I had wiggled in before and nothing poked out, but then again it IS a one POUNDER. And I used about half, or a third.

Anyway, thanks Amy, and WAY TO GO! :thumbsup: :cheering: :cheering: :happydance: :XX: Knit on...

And uh, I also noticed this link http://www.crochethelp.com goes here...

When do we get that section??? ;-) :thinking: I can't wait! Because I have trouble with crochet sometimes too :oops: But then I started crocheting just a few months before I started knitting, and I learned how to do a starting knot in crochet from a knitting video online! lol. How weird right?

Oh yeah! I finished that blanket for my boyfriend from Coats and clark patterns...COZY WEEKEND...IT covers his queen sized bed! ...grumble...I'm never making that again!



I've posted too long lol, Love you all, and

Congrats again to this love for knitting!

Inspire us some more :happydance:

Ps...sorry for the crappy pics. They are from my boyfriend's webcam. My digicam is at home

heh, this is for all you geeks here, especially you, Joel. I just noticed that there are now 1,024 users on this board. so now we truly do have a thousand users.

So I guess this means that knittylongstock, is the mega-user. hehe

*hint for all you non-geeky people* 1,024 bytes is considered to be 1000 bytes in computer language. has to do with binary mathematics, don't ask, takes too long to explain in non-technical terms. :D
