I am so glad to have this site available. I've been knitting for 38 years, and yet there are so many little and big things that a person can do to get better results, which I never knew about, and would probably have never learned without our Site here. The latest technique I learned from here is the Wrap and Turn for short rows. When I think of the number of projects I've made with little holes in them because I didn't Wrap and Turn....

I also LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing everyone's FO's, simple to advanced. Gives me so many ideas. This month I'm working on several red, green, white dishcloths to give as small Christmas gifts to the ladies at church. That's a fun way to do nifty new patterns without taking too long.

Anyway, thanks.cloud9

By hanging out here, I am "upping my game" and committed to not just more knitting, but better knitting.

Love this place!

I totally agree, about the site and the mods. :cheering: I get such encouragement and knowledge about a craft I love, and also get to laugh and cry with y'all. Not much better than that.

Yes, this site is AWESOME! A friend of mine told me that she had started knitting and recommended the site to me, so I checked it out sometime in March or April.

And guess what? This site TAUGHT me how to knit! It's a hobby that I've come to absolutely love, and I'm so grateful for everyone who has made this site possible (Amy!), for the moderators who help to keep the site awesome, and for the wonderful community of encouraging, supportive and fun-loving knitters.

I love this site too. I have been obssessed with it since I found it in August. I don't have a lot of knitting friends and so it's great to be able to talk to everyone here about knitting and get advice and just chat. I'm feeling so sentimental, but it's true. I consider everyone here a friend, even though I've never actually met you!

Wrap and Turn is involved in knitting short rows. There's a video about it in advanced techniques. I was knitting a dishcloth that is done in wedges, so each row you stop and turn around 1 stitch shorter. I've just been been turning, and that leaves a little hole each time. But there's a certain way to wrap the thread around the last stitch. The video is very clear.
