I've been lurking on this site for months and just today registered for my own account for some help on a hat I'm knitting so I felt like it was time to introduce myself!
I taught myself how to knit when I was 15(?) but was doing it in such an akward and slow way that I never stuck with it. Now I'm 19 and I've just finished my first year of college. My first semester a group of girls on my hall decided to pick up knitting and it renewed my interest. I found this site and haven't looked back!
My biggest regret is that I'm extremely sensive to wool and can't knit with any blend of it :( My upcoming project is on hold until I can find bulky cotton in bright orange, yellow and rust red. Any suggestions?
Anyway, I'm happy to be here!
