My name's Becca, I'm a 26 year-old SAHM to 3 great kids and wife to an awesome DH for 8 years. I learned to knit in high school Home Ec. I just recent;y learned to purl and I'm having a blast with it! I use needles and also just aquired a Knifty Knitter, so I've made some hats and a scarf with it. I just finished knitting my Mom a hat and am now knitting a scarf (with needles). I can't wait to read up on some great tips and get to know everyone here! :XX:

Welcome! There is such a wealth of knowledgeable knitters here! Glad to have another. Isn't it funny the things we learned in home ec.

Welcome, Becca! :waving:

I'm jealous that you learned to knit in Home Ec! We didn't learn any crafts except sewing, and I already knew how to do that. The only thing I remember from Home Ec is this bit of sage advice: "never kiss a boy if you wouldn't use his toothbrush." :shock:

I got to make an apron in Home Ec. I think it was the last occasion I ever had to own an apron. :thinking:

Hi Becca! Welcome!

I'm a sahm too.

How cool that they taught knitting in Home ec! All we learned was cooking, and that you should wear deoderant. HA! Our teacher actually had a one women skit about it. That is so sad. I would have loved to learn to knit.

A skit about the need to wear deoderant?! Oh please please please describe that!

WELCOME, Becca!! You like it here, I promise you!! I'm pretty sure this is the nicest forum of knitting ladies (and some cool guys too) in the world--and some of them know just about EVERYTHING when it comes to knitting!! JUst ask for help, and they're so accomodating.

The only thing I learned in Home Ec.....course, that was in the 60's....was how to set a table correctly. :shock:

Ack! Table setting! We had to take a test on that! :rollseyes:
