Hi everyone--

I am a brand new knitter! It is something that I've always wanted to learn, and I finally got around to it this summer. I'm a teacher, and a group of us decided to get together and learn from another teacher we work with who is an amazing knitter. I've also used this site quite a bit, and it has been very helpful!!!

I have two "WIP's" (both scarves, of course), and I'm looking forward to branching out to new projects too.

Just wanted to introduce myself. :D

And you can tell how new I am because I put that post in the wrong place--it was supposed to be under the "introduce yourself" post! :oops:

And if you get really addicted, you will start trying to meet learning objectives in the classroom with knitting!

If there are 40 stitches per row and Mrs. Irish knitter can knit five rows in a minute, how many stitches in an hour? Determining pattern repeats, research reports on wool (LA), burn rates of various fibers (science), importance of knitting in the American culture (SS). Oh the possibilities are endless!

Or maybe you decide to teach in a Montessori school since knitting is in the curriculum!
