I came across this site googling and I am so glad I did it's a fantastic site just what I am looking for.

My daughter is expecting and I haven't done any knitting or crocheting for many many years so I am very rusty.

Looking forward to getting to know you fab knitters

Hi there!

Thank you for the how-to for forum.

I'm currently trying to fix what happened when I had worked on my knitting while I was upset by more bad news from the dr.s about my husband's cancer fight. I dropped some stitches and it was down 4 or 5 rows before I noticed it.

Right now my husband is singing next to me; he sang to me for the first time on our first date. I'm praying that God will clean out the cancer from all of the different places it is in his body.

I thought I'd like to talk to someone about knitting, reading, and about my husband, if you don't mind.

Karen

Great to Be Here!
Hello all! I've been referring to the videos and whatnot on this website for awhile, but decided that I should join the community! My mom taught me the basics of knitting when I was a teen, and I've been teaching myself stuff ever since. I should learn a lot here!

I made my first piece of clothing this winter (a sleeveless sweater, I'll put it in the FO thread soon), not counting scarves, and a couple of toques. My first scarf was *huge.* I like 'em big so I can wrap them around my neck, over my head and around my neck again. I cast on enough stitches for a 12" wide sweater and finally stopped when it was 60" long - perfect. Okay, maybe a little too long...

For the past few months, I've been having friends who knit (or crochet) over once a week, and we're all really enjoying that! We call it the Itty Bitty Knitty Club. I'm currently working on a Shipwreck shawl (a friend and I are doing it together) and it's going pretty well... might post a question about it later.

Take care everybody, and nice to meet you!

Hello to Everyone,

I have just started knitting because a friend reminded me how relaxing it can be. She convinced me to engage my hands at night when I might eat instead. My grandmother tried to teach me about 35 years ago. A lot of it came back. I never had an interest until now. My mom knits also because of the encouragement of her friends where she lives. I've looked at books but seem to learn best from videos. I know this site will help. It would be fun to be able to do some elaborate patterns. They can be beautiful. Excited!

Sue

New to Forum and need help with a stitch.
Hi Everyone - Several years ago I discovered this site and have been referring to it ever since as I LOVE the videos whenever I'm stuck. But I cannot find a video for this stitch... (p1, k1) into yarn over. Has anyone ever done this? I have been Googling for days trying to find a video that shows how to do this stitch but can't find one. I'm knitting a mesh top that has a 4 row repeat with this stitch on the purl side. A few of my knitting friends have shown me a few versions, but it's still not coming out right. Please help! Thank you.[/font]
