Another new knitter here, who's wanted to learn for years. My mother knits occasionally, and tried to teach me numerous times, but for some reason I just couldn't get it. It baffled me, as I'm a very visual learner and when someone was sitting right next to me showing me how but it still didn't click. This site did the trick, though, and I successfully knit a little dishcloth this past week and am starting the second one.

I also started crocheting this past summer as a way to stave off boredom, and have been sewing for about seven years. I just like fabric and clothes and making pretty things. I just learned about Fair Isle (well, in the "this is a knitting thing you can do" sense, instead of hearing about it for the first time ever) and it looks like something I'd like to tackle.
