My name is Chris (OldSoul). I've been making jewelry and painting watercolors for years, but I have just started knitting. I've visited this site often for the How To videos. I bought books, but the videos really make a difference. So far, I have knit about 4 scarves (got waay carried away on one--I could wrap it around my neck about 3 times and still almost trip on it).
I am finding that yarn is as addictive to me as beads or watercolor supplies. I have to work just to pay for my hobbies! The added bonus is that with my hands busy, I am snacking much less at night!
So thank you, to whoever took the time to make and post the videos. It has really helped enormously in building my confidence. Now, all I need is more space to keep my growing stash of beautiful yarns!
