Hi venusspeciment, I live in essex. there are quite a few here from the UK and all over the world. I joined a couple of months ago and have learnt a lot here in a short time. Everybody is very friendly, the only problem is that I now spend more time on KH than I do knitting.

If you are interested why don't you pop over to the charity page and look at the oddball baby blanket, a few of us from the UK have joined in and are making blankets to send back to the US.

I live in the mountains, it is very pretty here, some snow right at the moment. And Cold. Happy New Year to you. And Happy Knitting.
There is a knitting group here and we have a great teacher, she is a knitting judge, So I can get lots of help. Lucky me.

I live in Kent, and find it hard to get quality products made in this country. Even when it's a British company, the products are often made elsewhere for cheapness. My local yarn store was also 2 towns over and has closed, so I have a choice between the woman who makes baby clothes and carries some yarn, and charity shops. I have to get anything specific online, therefore

Hi

I live in Lancashire and have just joined this site. I am a novice at knitting with no one to ask when I get stuck on a pattern. Now I work partime I want to to be able to learn to knit all those lovely baby things I couldnt knit for my own children ( had to pay someone else to knit them) as i want to knit for my g/children. I can knit but it all goes to pot when i get to the shaping and its a pattern so everthing I have knitted so far has had plain sleeves and top. Now knitting is back in fashion I am determined to learn properly. I am looking for local knit and natter groups.

Hi
I'm new to both the site and knitting (well I did some as a kid but nothing for many years and had no idea what I was doing!)

I live in Croydon, south London.

We've got a Hobbycraft just down the road from us which seems to have a great choice of wool although I have no idea if its good quality or not!

Hello All - Don't know if this counts but I'm originally from England but now live in Michigan in the US!

To Michelle re Hobby craft - I looked at their website and saw they carry Regia yarn which I believe is a good brand, they also have Patons too. I suppose it depends on your experience level and what you want to make. I've bought the majority of my sock wool from very similar stores in the US and have been very happy with the brands and the selection. Maybe one day I'll work my way up to using hand spun and hand dyed expensive yarn, but I'm not ready for that yet!

Hi I'm in Wales. I'm new to knitting so far I've only made a scarf purely with knit stitches and a dishcloth with K, K2tog, Sl, YO, Kf&b. I'm enjoying it immensely but I've just bought some yarn called Paton's Fab Big and I'm trying to do the scarf pattern on the label and failing miserably. If anybody can help I would really appreciate it, I'm going to post my question into the How to section if you wouldn't mind taking a look?
