Hi Knitters.

I am very new to knitting, and am looking forward to learning much from all of you. My mom told me I need to introduce myself, so here goes: my name is Ginna, I live in Virginia, I have two beautiful and brilliant girls: 7 years old and 2 years old. I have knitted 3 dishcloths so far, and am now making a rectangle with the left-over yarn. I'm not sure I'll ever get used to the leftovers!!! I see in my knitting future a beautiful grey or maybe burgundy or maybe plum colored ruana (it's a long sweater/poncho), but for now I'll stick to just knitting row upon row of blue cotton. It's pretty intimidating, but I'm getting the hang of it. Thanks in advance for the help I'm sure I will need and y'all will share. Happy Knitting!!

Clueless :hug:

Welcome, Clueless.
This place has been invaluable to me as I've only been knitting for about a year.

Welcome Clueless,

I'm a newbie too, its just been scarves up to now but I'm getting more adventurous!

I'm sure it won't be long before your wearing your ruana.

These guys on here are great - If you're stuck ask for help and you'll get loads!!!

Good Knitting!

I'm her mom. For any of you remember the gray cardigan I made with the large Santa face, she's the recipient. Unfortunately Virginia has had an EXTREMELY warm season so far so it hasn't had much wear. Today the temp outside here is 72 degress at 12:30. YUCK!
