I don't have any kind of big announcement or anything, just saying "Hi everyone!" You might see more of me here this Summer at least. Not because I have a ton of time or anything, but just because I miss being here.


BIG HAPPY THANK YOU TO YOU FOR THIS. Not sure if you remember me, but I emailed you a few months back asking questions. Since then, I have had so many wonderful experts in this forum and your videos. I have knitted at least 8 to 10 projects and a request list from friends and familly.

Thank you so very much. I absolutely love knitting and am so glad I picked up a pair of bamboo sticks and yarn!!!

(I have since graduated to Denise Exchange circulars LOL.

Thank you again! I feel so fulfilled every single day!!

Hi Amy!

I am an off and on visitor to the KH forums, but I just wanted to say thank you for teaching me to knit!

I learned from watching your videos 5 years ago and I still re-watch them from time to time when I am using a technique I haven't used in a while.

I wonder how many people have learned to knit just by watching your videos, like I did?

Nice to hear from you, Amy! I learned to knit on your site and now teach knitting at my church, referring people here for when I can't be there to help them.
HOw's life for you? The baby isn't a baby anymore, right?

I would also like to add my thank you to the list. I have learned so much from the videos. I usually need to learn something at midnight, so it has been nice to have a knitting teacher available 24/7! I am primary caregiver to my disabled daughter and this has given me the chance to learn a new skill when I have a few minutes. The group of members on KH has always been friendly and has promptly and expertly answered questions. This is one of the nicest communities on the web. So thank you Amy and thank you to the KH community at large!

I just want to say thank you so much! This site has been soooo useful! I'm a 12 year old whose been knitting since I was 8 but I didn't know about purling or any other stitch until this year when my aunt introduced me. I had so much trouble because i had never knitted anything other than scarfs! This site is my secret miracle!

Thanks again! Kayley

Hi Amy!!!

THANKS so much for getting this site together AND making all the helpful videos here! I teach a knitting/crocheting class at my church and I refer my students to this site all the time!

When I first learned to knit (around 40 years ago) there were only 2 ways to learn - in person or by reading a book. Now, thanks to you (and others) new knitters can watch videos over and over and over and over!!!!!!!

THANKS!!!!
