View Full Version : A quick hello

09-20-2007, 05:55 AM
I am a new user on this forum... well on forums in general. i have recently retired, and whilst I have been knitting in the evenings for many a year...I thought it might be good to get out there do some more to fill my days.

A few of the grandchildren have already put in requests for various bits and bobs, I'm hoping its gonna be a cold winter.... I was going to make the presents for Christmas this year rather than buy, I think it would make it a lot more personal.

Anyway, I'll try not to ramble, I just wanted to meet others that shared my passion.

Welcome to the forum! I'm a forum addict! I just get sucked in to all this chatter about knitting and can't pull myself away. I would get a lot more knitting done if I turned the computer off. :roll: So I'm sure your days will now be filled as well as your evenings. :mrgreen:

Welcome Myra! Ooh, you're going to get sucked into the forum so quickly, before long you'll be furiously checking for new posts. I'm not sure what is more addictive - knitting, or talking to fellow enthusiasts about knitting (and gaping at their pictures and lusting after their stash and admiring their creativity...).

Welcome and hello! :waving: This is a great forum! People here are so very nice and helpful.

I hope it is a cold winter too - I have lots of handknit socks to wear.
