Hi Everyone – I am new to this site, I joined about a month ago, and felt like it was time for me to introduce myself. I took a knitting class about seven years ago and made a seed stitch scarf in a Noro wool, which my husband wears to this day. I have knitted mostly hats and scarves.
Knitting for me had been on a hiatus for quite a while, I had learned how to cast-on using the long tail technique, and had even forgotten how to do that, so I suppose it had been a while since I had picked up my needles.
This site is wonderful – I feel like it has the soul of a teacher. People here are so helpful and funny too. I have certainly had a few chuckles reading some of the forum posts.
I am a recent transplant to this area – my husband’s job moved us to Winston Salem, North Carolina from Santa Fe, New Mexico about a year and a half ago. We still have our home in Santa Fe and I make trips back there; the next one is coming up soon. I have a LYS there that I adore, two sisters own it and their shop is decorated with items that they have knitted; it is a joy to visit and a highlight of my trips out.
I am currently working on swatches of stitch patterns. In time I will begin a shawl; in a previous post salmonmac had suggested I try connecting my swatches to test out the transitions between them. When I did this I discovered that the stitches weren’t going to work together. I have come up with a combination of three patterns that I really like together, but not for this shawl, so I continue swatching and blocking.
I will have limited access to the internet in Santa Fe, so I look forward to visiting this site when I return. Hopefully I will have pictures to post by then. I really appreciate what you have put together here.
I am brand new to knitting and the videos on this site were amazing!! I love KnittingHelp.com. After many many bad swatches I started a scarf! I am in love with knitting and can't wait to see what my future in knitting brings.
I self-taught myself to knit and crochet
I have been crocheting for 13 years solid,but have only just started knitting last few months of last year.
I have knitted 4 scarfs using cebelia crochet cotton threads size 30-3 cord and a size 0 knitting needles. I also have knitted a few dish and face cloths. I also have added knitted I cords to my crochet work and made necklaces from them.
Welocme to Knitting Help! Cyicrochet, I'm in awe: 4 scarfs on size 0 needles. Wow.
We're glad you''re here. If you'd like to post photos of any of your projects in Whatcha' Knitting, we'd all love to see them.
Just wanted to say hi. I'm 26, I've been knitting for close to a year and a half now, and I think I'm about at an intermediate level at this point. Self taught mostly, though I did take a felting class and a fair-isle yoke sweater class. I'm in the Lehigh Valley in PA.
