:waving: Welcome Knitting MAMA. What would you like to do? Maybe a wash cloth or two. Perhaps a scarf? Or a poncho? If you have a little one there's a really nice and easy poncho on the getting started page of this site. You could also tell us a little about yourself if you would like.

well, i have a 2 year only named savannah-rose and a 4.9 year old named River ofdestiny. and we are getting ready to move to the country :cheering: and i can hardly wait to start doing more crafts and crocheting etc. I've wanted to do knitting, but it really has intimidated me... but i think if i can get "plugged in" with a good group then i can over come that. And hopefully, i've found that here

If you're looking to learn to knit, this is the place! Welcome!

Welcome! If you're just starting, I'd recommend getting some US size 8 straight needles and some worsted weight yarn. Then watch Amy's videos on Casting on and the Knit Stitch -- before you know it you'll knitting all kinds of stuff!
Welcome! You found the perfect place to learn :)
