I know this is a mainly US dominated (is that the right word?) site but i love it here and feel so welcome and have learnt a lot from here.
just wondered if there were any other UK knitters :) :hug:

I'm slightly late, but Scotland completes the Scotland/England/Ireland/Wales set, so it's okay, right? :happydance:

Hi! Knittin' up a storm all on my lonesome in Aberdeenshire! No one will believe me that this place isn't heaving with Scottish fairisle knitters, but I can't find a single soul to meet me for a knit and chat session. Won't stop me though, and thank goodness this website is here - I don't know what I'd do without it for help, encouragement and tips for a relatively new knitter (hey, I didn't say young now did I - just a pin newbie?!)

I'm in Halesowen in the West Midlands and though I too love to knit slippers and socks at the moment it's baby clothes and baby clothes and more baby clothes. My son and daughter in law are expecting baby number two in April, my older daughter's friend is expecting baby number one in April, one of my Dad's carers has a daughter expecting baby number one in... you guessed it April and my friend's sister is expecting baby number two in April. What on earth was in the air at the end of July beginning of August!

I'm officially in 'Merseyside' but really in Lancashire - Southport - I'm originally a Pie.
It's great to know we've got more Brits on the site.
Yup, - we've got England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales - and even Lancashire and Yorkshire - what more could you possibly want?:teehee:
All the Best and Happy Knitting
