View Full Version : Hi all (intro post)

Hiya. :)

My name's Becky; I'm 18. I'm from southeastern PA, but I go to college in central PA.

I first learned to knit when I was really little from my dad, but got bored without completely any projects. A few months ago, a friend at college decided to start knitting, and I got addicted (I'm sure all of you understand that). I've been lurking on this site for about a month, and decided I should say finally say hi.

Out of my finished projects, I think my most favorite are the socks I just finished, and a hat based on the one Jayne wore in Firefly. Hopefully I'll post pictures soon.

Everyone on this board seems so nice; I almost can't wait to have questions, so I can get to know all of you.

As a guy who knits I think it's pretty cool that you first learned from your dad.

Welcome Becky! I'm sure you'll enjoy knitting/the forum as much as everyone here! Its an addiction really, I think if I had learned in college I would've never gotten any work done I'd have just constantly been knitting.

I'd love to see a picture of your Jayne hat! That's definitely on the list of someday projects for me - DH and I both need them... :teehee:

Welcome! College is a great time to learn to knit. Do your professors let you knit in class? If you don't mind my asking, what are you majoring in, and where are you going to college? I knew some people from my church who went to college in PA - I think it was Bethany College or something like that.
