looking for a friendly knitters :)
 
hey you guys.

i'm new to this website but as soon as i saw it . . . i almost went into shock. this website is my favorite!
:muah:
right now, i'm knitting my second sock ever. i just finished my first one yesterday. i was so happy! :hug: i was trying to convince my sister,14, of how cool it was to actually make a baby sock, but she was like whatever.
so i'm just trying to find a few friends online who knit cuz i don't have any one in my family who knits. my mom used to but she doesn't have time anymore. and interestingly enough . . . my brother-in-law knows how to knit and crochet but he doesn't do it as a hobby. my sister (his wife) couldn't knit a garter stitch scarf if her life depended on it. :)

by the way, i'm 15 years old. that's why i'm looking online for anyone else who knits. it's so hard to find friends who knit who are my age. although my sister(14) does know how to crochet like me but she's not really into it. and i taught my two best friends how to knit but one is too busy right now (she's my neighbor) and the other one goes to another school. so yeah. i'm just looking for a couple of people to share my knitting ideas with and just have a friendnly conversation.

any takers? :)

Hi Knitchick,

Good on you! We need more young people getting into knitting! :muah:

If you say where you're near, you might find some other folks nearby...

And hey...we're all friendly here, so jump right in, OK?

Knitchick - What a small world! Gainesville, GA is my hometown! My entire family still lives there and I get back to visit as much as possible. I went to North Hall High School and then to Brenau University. It's nice to run across people from your hometown. So, how's Gainesville knitting these days?

knitchick 12-22-2006 06:01 PM

wow! :balloons: i can't believe this!

i actually go to East Hall High. knitting is all right over here. except they need to make a knitting store! :pray: i have to go all the way to the hobby lobby in buford to get good supplies and yarn! :eyes:

by the way, did you ever go to free chapel? that's the church i go to and it is AWESOME!!! :woot: pastor jentezen franklin is preaching better than ever!

you're right. it is nice to run across people from your hometown. it's great being able to talk to you! :woohoo:

so what are you knitting right now?

jjminarcik 12-22-2006 09:58 PM

My dad went to East Hall and my grandmother lives over that way, too. I did go to Free Chapel a few times - my personal favorite was their Christmas Eve services, they were always so moving. Is there an associate pastor there named Mark Mobley? He was my high school math teacher and he was so awesome, I remember he had just started there when I moved out of Gainesville. There is a new yarn store near my parents house; I went to it when I was there a month or so ago. It's half yarn, half quilting. I think it's called Quilted Hearts? It's on Dawsonville Highway past Home Depot on the left in a little bitty shopping center. You should check it out, they have awesome yarns!!!!! :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

I'm working on a felted purse right now; my first felting project. I'm almost done with the body and then I have to do the i-cord and felt it. Can't wait to felt it, I'm so excited!!!

What are you working on? Besides gifts for your family?

knitchick 12-23-2006 01:23 PM

hello again! :muah:

so you did go to free chapel? and you're right about the christmas services! i'm going to the one tomorrow. it's supposed to be great! :happydance: they also do a lot of illustrated sermons now too. a couple of months ago, pastor franklin did a series called hot wheels (phenomenal!) and a lot of guests come to speak. not to mention choirs, and performances by the youth groups! but, no, i don't know of anyone named mark mobley there. :shrug: there are a lot of new pastors, though.

and i had no idea there was a yarn store on dawsonville highway! :whoosh: that is awesome! i'll go check it out as soon as I can! :X:

so you're working on your first felted purse? i've never felted anything. maybe i'll try it. right now, i'm working on my second baby sock and i'm also thinking about knitting my first sweater or just a cami. can't wait! :woot: i might have time to work on it while i'm in mexico. we're leaving in a couple of days so i'll have plenty of time to work on that on the way there! :thumbsup: well, i gotta go. hope i hear from you soon! :cheering:

Hi everybody! I'm a college student, love to knit! Love to talk about it with my web buddies!

I just figured out the knitting thing myself and I'm 43 but I can related because I have crocheted since I was 9 so I didn't know a lot of people my age who did it so I'll tell you what I did. I taught my friends so I had someone to talk about it and share projects with and they are all still thanking me today and remain the best of my friends 30 some years later.
