Hello!
Hi there!

I am so happy to have rediscovered this site! I learned to knit several years ago using the English method. I like to throw! However, due to some physical problems with my right arm and hand, I need to find another (less painful) way to knit. Different motions... So, here I am, glad to be back again!!!

I have already watched the continental videos, which are a great help! One important thing I learned the hard way (youtube, )... There are different ways of purling, but the one I learned on this site is great! Other methods twist the stitch so that you have to k into the back of the st to untwist later...ugh!

Ah well, practice makes perfect, right? I look forward to learning and knitting along with y'all!

Welcome back TeeBee. Don't give up trying on the continental method. It can take a while to find a way of purling that fits you.

Welcome to the site. Before you make a sweater for James, better read up on the "curse"

Hi all! I'm really glad I found this forum! I've already seen so many helpful posts.

I am a newbie knitter and have completed only a handful of small scarf projects and one sampler afghan project. I'll try to post a picture of the afghan later, I love it. I'm working on a baby blanket right now, but I'd like to expand my skills into the world of garments. I've practiced some knitting in the round on DPNs and plan to try circulars next. I am also a novice at crochet and learned from my great-grandma when I was quite young. I thought I had forgotten how to crochet till I wanted to put a border on my afghan and fortunately my hands remembered the motions! I'm looking forward to "meeting" and learning from all of you!

Welcome to the forum. There is a crochet sub forum here for those who are interested.

What is the "curse" though?

Here's an earlier thread about the curse of the boyfriend sweater. I think you're safe with a scarf though. Pobably a hat would work too.
