Hello everyone! :waving: My name is Heather. I'm a 25 year old wife to Josh and mother to an almost 2 year old named Elijah.
A while back I decided to teach myself how to crochet and well, it just didn't work. :doh: I got sick a few weeks ago and couldn't do much but lie around so I bought a 'how to' knit book and I've been hooked ever since! It's turned out to be so much easier for me than crocheting was.
Right now I'm working on a small purse/handbag pattern that came in the book. I've *almost* mastered the garter stitch without even knowing what that was. It turns out I'm a continental knitter, which I just learned after finding this fabulous website! I actually thought I was knitting incorrectly since the book I'm learning from told me to hold the yarn in my right hand. These videos are amazing and so easy to follow!!
I can't wait to get to know everyone and pick up a few tips along the way. I watch a knitting show almost daily and my list of projects I'd love to try are ever increasing!! Gosh the beautiful things you can make!!

Happy Knitting! :XX:

:blush: I suppose if I had looked a little harder, I would've seen the sticky thread specifically for introducing yourself. :blush:
Thank you for the welcomes though.

Hey Barefootmama! Love the name! They called me something similar in highschool cause everyone knew I was going to have a "shopping cart full of kids!" And my next baby is due anyday! Any day I tell ya. Gosh I wish this baby would hurry up, I cant wait to meet him/her.

My crochet also looked like poo! I could never get tension right. But knitting is like a dream.

I still have never sent in an intro, I just started posting. Right now I only have time to post on the weekends. Hmm, maybe I ought to send in an introduction. hmmm.

Everyone here is absolutely wonderful! Very cool guys and gals.
