View Full Version : Intro...Hi!

01-14-2007, 04:56 PM
I joined today and just wanted to say hello...

I was taught to knit when I was 9 (English method), but I was taught to knit left-handed...and I'm right-handed.

Sooooo, as I haven't knitted SINCE I was 11 or 12, I'm having to learn all over again, because I simply CANNOT get my 47-year old hands to remember how to knit like I was taught...


I just picked it up again a few days ago and learned there's ANOTHER way to knit...Continental method. Needless to say, my hands are not cooperating! I can KNIT continental just fine, but PURL is another story. So I knit Continental and purl English.

I anticipate problems...

Oh yes.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and am looking forward to getting to know you guys.
