Well, welcome to you, too, Dima in Florida. There are many knitters here from Florida, maybe some near you.

KnitBeg Introduction
Hi there

First of I found the introduction thread I'm not too used to fora, so this ain't my first post here I already asked for help I guess that says a lot

I am happy to have found this community. I am forever juggling with my knitting and it would be great if there are people outthere who can help. I did pay some attention in class, but I think it is about 20 years agoo that I was told to knit and purl I hope to get enough experience to help others in return, but that will take some time.

What to tell... I'm not much for the big projects - I don't really have the patience. I've made hats and purses and are currently working on book covers. Even things that small I knit partly and sew together

I recently got into knitting with "relief". So not as much in different colours or shapes, but rather cables and stuff... I'm not too experienced at it yet.

Take care and maybe see you around somewhere,
KnitBeg (= Knitter & Beginner)

Hi everybody.
I'm 24-year old girl from Croatia. My name is Rea. I'm new at this forum and I'm new at knitting. I finished my first scarf ever today and I fell in love with knitting. Now I want to learn more
So I decided to join this forum and learn new stuff.
And I apologize in advance for stupid beginner questions

Hello! I'm a 21 year old student at ASU, hence the screen name. I just took up knitting yesterday as an inexpensive and constructive hobby to do around campus. I'm anxious to learn more and start making my own accessories, etc!

Welcome Rea and Sundevil!

We can give you hints on things to do on the cheap. Post a question about it in the General forum and you'll get all kinds of ideas.

Very happy to find an online knitting community
Hello everyone,
I've recently started knitting again after a very long hiatus away from it. Growing up on Cape Breton, knitting sweaters was a income generating hobby - got to love the tourists - and strange to say that as a child, I knitted sweaters long before I ever made a scarf.

I don't work from premade patterns very much but I have been trying to write them down so I can share them with the family.
I'm working on an oversized hooded poncho for my daughter's Christmas gift at the moment. (I'm so pleased that they've come back in style.) I've already unraveled it twice as the sample patches I made didn't translate well into the garment. I think that I'm trying to go too fancy, the cables and ladders don't lie properly giving the poncho a skewed look so I'm going for a simple seed stitch this time.

Be assured I shall be needing a lot of help as my memory for stitches has gotten a bit fuzzy and I'll remember a part of a stitching pattern but end of staring at the needles when the results don't match the vision.

Pleased to be here and I'll post a pic when I get really going on it. Critiques and opinions are always welcomed.

Hi Everyone,
I learned to knit many years ago and have recently returned to knitting. It's wonderful to find a site like this with so many experienced knitters willing to share their knowledge and skill! Looking forward to being part of this group
