Nice to meet you both! I live in University Place which is essentially West Tacoma.

In response to your questions:

1. Don't have a favorite yarn yet. I've only been buying what I think is pretty and easy to use so far.

2. My favorite thing to knit so far is scarves, though I'm now knitting my first baby blanket.

3.4. Don't have a favorite designer or magazine so far.

5. Not a raveler

6. I've only been knitting for 5 months.

7. I can crochet single and double chains. That's all.

8. Live near Tacoma

9. Knitting hours vary. Usually lunchtime while watching tv (I work from home) or evenings

10. Favorite knitting book so far is Knitting Pretty.

That's it for now. Thanks for asking!

Hi. Nice to meet you ladies, can I pop in?

I don't have a favorite yarn, I am such a cheapo I am afraid of falling in love with the good stuff. I do think Paton's Pooch yarn makes a cute and easy scarf that's the only yarn I can even think of off the top of my head.
My favorite thing to knit, gosh. I have knit a lot of scarves lately but I hope to become good at knitting stuffed animals, I just think they are so cute. I did knit a felted hat once that I was just so proud of I couldn't believe I had done it myself, I should make that one again I guess. LOL
I don't have a favorite designer
My favortie mags are the old copies of Family Circle knitting I have, I don't even know if they sill have that mag.
I am not on Rav yet, I looked at it and to tell the truth it was totally overwhelming and intimidating to me, I just felt like it was for "real knitters". I know that's not the way to think so I amy get brave.
I took a knitting class 13yrs ago but I have a hard time saying I have been knitting that long, I am a major on again/ off again knitter. I haven't made very many projects total. I have been 5+yrs without or more and am just starting back up last fall or so.
I would like to learn to crochet
I live in Gig Harbor, WA
Prime knitting hours really vary. If I am in a mode I can try to fit it in constantly. I am a SAHM (well I do work at Swedish/Ballard every other weekend) so I can try to fit it in around kid stuff a bit but usually it is after the kids are in bed so 8-11 or so.
I don't have a favorite book yet either. I have to admit I wing it alot and I think that is why I don't feel like a very accomplished knitter because I rarely know the proper way to do something, I just kinda do whatever works.
Thanks for "listening". See ya around the boards, Chris

ArtLady1981 06-12-2008 02:47 PM

Welcome all! :muah: I love reading your answers!!! :hug:Thanks for sharing!!

Chris: If you join Ravelry, you can use it just for the patterns if you want to! It has a great pattern search, and often shows photos of other's versions of a particular pattern, using different yarns, with modifications, etc.

If you join, just wade in a little at a time. You may not feel up to filling a notebook with your own projects and stash, but you can snoop through others notebooks (they are public, its ok!) and get ideas for yourself!

That's what I love to do! Snoop!

Hello Everyone!

I'm in Washington! (Covington to be exact) I JUST joined! I'm a new knitter and have only been able to take one class so far. Due to a surgery, I wasn't even able to complete it. I'm struggling a bit on the project, but now that I'm on medical leave from work, I'm going to finish it. If my daughter's head suddenly becomes lopsided, I'm sure she will one day appreciate the hat! :-)

Other than that, I have really only made some scarves. My ultimate goal is to be able to make socks for everyone in my family and a sweater for my fiance. I know that is a long way off, but I'm determined.

Since I'm pretty much homebound at the moment, I'm really happy to have found this site!

Hi'ya Neighbor! :waving:

I live in Kent, not far from you! When summer simmers down...maybe we can meet at the Open Knitters Night at Renaissance Yarn shop in downtown Kent, located on E. Meeker St.

Every Friday evening (except the 3rd Friday is devoted to Charity Knitting Group) all knitters are welcome to come down at 5 pm and sit 'n' knit with whomever shows up! Renaissance has a nice living room/sitting area for us!

Let me know! I'd love to meet a new knitting buddy!
