View Full Version : Hi from Australia!

Hi everyone :waving:

I've been frequenting this site for many months now and I have to say a big thank you to Amy for all the wonderful videos! You have essentially taught me to knit - my mum tried but I found it much easier to watch the videos and learn from those LOL so thank you Amy! :muah:

I've got into knitting mostly to knit for my cloth nappied son - so far I've mostly knit soakers and shorties, but I'm currently knitting some socks for my DH as part of a knitalong on an Australian forum I belong to. Next on the list is a hooded jumper for my older son.

This is what I usually look like when I'm knitting..... :frog: :rofl: but I am getting better and there is less of that going on these days :happydance:

Hoping to get to know you all on the boards if I can find the time to keep up with another forum!

Hello, welcome to the forum! I'm pretty new on here myself, but I really enjoy it here, I've learned so much! I used cloth diapers for my two kids, I remember wishing at the time that I knew how to knit so I could make those great wool soakers. Now that I've finally taught myself how to knit, my kids are both out of diapers! Go figure.
Anyway, welcome!

Aww, I read your post and it made me want to be back in OZ so badly!!! My husband is from Townsville. We're going back this June to visit every one and I can't wait!!!

Welome! I'm another Aussie celeb fan...
I've got a thing for Scots too, sigh...
Again, welcome to the forum, we get pretty scooters around here!

Thanks for the welcome! I'm so excited about finding this site! I just graduated from college so I finally have time to knit again. I just finished my scarf that sat, untouched, for too many months. Now, I'm learning some different techniques and attempting the Reversible Shamrock Dishtowel. I've unraveled it a million times now because I keep thinking, "I can do that better!" The good thing is, it gets better every time I redo it. So, at least I'm making progress :cheering:

Ribbit - Lincraft is an even better option to Spotlight, better prices, and on boxing day i bought up big, cause there was 50% off all yarn, and they have a bigger range than spotlight, at least the ones near me do.

thanks Dee :)

unfortunately the only lincraft near me is in the city (pitb for parking!) and has zero wool :(

luckily I've found to LYS close by that stock nothing but wool, wool, and more wool! :happydance:
