Just have to say thanks to our experienced knitters...
...especially our Mod Squad!

I'm always sure I can get an answer here to almost any question, and usually really quickly -- so helpful when I'm stuck in the middle of a knitting session. I try to give back and answer what I can, taking the example of people here, but I remain in awe of the expertise and helpfulness experienced knitters show here...with no snarkiness or sarcasm or any of some of the unpleasantness you can find elsewhere. (My avatar all aside, I actually don't care for that sort of thing, really.)

So, THANKS, you guys. All the help and care you guys show is truly appreciated!

Thank you! I certainly do not consider myself an experienced knitter since I've only been knitting for 3.5 yrs, but I help where I can.

I totally agree!! Every question I've asked has been answered amazingly quickly. I can't wait for the day when I have enough experience to answer other people's questions.

Adding my 2 cents too. All my questions have been answered so quickly and, because of it, I've kept on knitting. I'm always talking about this site to people and encouraging my new knitting friends to stop on by. You guys rock!! Seriously!

I, too, love having this place in my knitting arsenal!

There have been times when this place kept a project from incineration.
