Great site!
I just joined today after someone in craftster.org mentioned this site.

I've only just started knitting again after a horrible relationship with the needles when I was 11.

But this site has some great videos and other resources!

THANK YOU!! ^_^

Thank you, Amy. I'm not the chatty kind, but I do appreciate a convenient resource. This website seems very user friendly. I haven't knitted in years and just found some yarn & needles. I was inspired to start again, but in need of some refresher courses and helpful hints. For all the help with the knitting, I'm even less adept as the website visit protocol. I don't know the first thing about the chatting, blogging whatever. I'm certain there are variations. Myfirst question, is what is the best method for going from one skein of yarn to another.

hello one and all
Hello one and all, I got here as i needed help, which i got on the first page i arrived at. how great was that?. I call myself a new knitter although my mother and grandmother taught me the basics at age 6..But couldn't keep a grasp of it, as a mother i tried to pick it up a few times but could never finnish a project. However since becoming a grandmother (a Young one) i have almost finnished every project..just missing out things like booties to a complete set..i'm still teaching myself and stick to easy patterns but with your help and the wonderful videos on this site i'm sure i'll be doing better..i'm doing blankets for my very early newborn grandaughter right now..with lots of colours to catch her eye..
be happy and stay healthy.
Julie

Hi Everyone
I just started to learn to knit and I love it! Before my stroke, I designed and made my own career wear and crochet was my favorite passtime, besides music.

I can still crochet and play music, but at last I'm treating myself to learning how to knit! I'm looking forward to learning from everyone here.

I've found that if I work really, really hard, I can recover some of the function in my dominant (right) hand and the sky is the limit. Key is, to never-ever give up!

Cheers,
shellstitch

Hi
I'm Linda L. and am a beginning knitter. I started about a year ago.
I have been enjoying making the few projects I have completed.
I started because I wanted to make a sweater for my grandchildren.
