Glad I found you!
Hello to everyone,

Lucky for me I was looking for the best way to increase stitches, and I found this web site. I was amazed by the detailed videos, and even though it was late and I should have been in bed, I had to sit and view most of them.

I was so impressed that I decided to register, and I hope to make many new friends. I grew up in Pennsylvania, but I've been living in Wales the past 4 1/2 years after marrying a Welshman.

Thanks for a wonderful site! Hats off to you Amy! :D

Hi!
I am just learning to knit and found the videos on this site VERY helpful! I have been reading the posts for the past day, it's very nice to know I'm not the only one obsessed with yarn and needles!! :D

Introducing myself
Hi, we've only been online a few months. I am somewhat technically challenged so I have trouble viewing the videos on this site, don't know whether it is me, my location(NZ), or a software problem but what I have been able to see of the videos looks really great. I am new to the world of forums, having joined my first a few weeks ago but this looks like a very active and worthwhile site.

It is great to have a place to talk to others about knitting and to share knitting problems as I don't know many people who knit. Also living in a smaller country (population approx 4 million) we don't have the wealth of resources found in Europe or United States, so not so many yarn shops and no knitting circles or classes for adults that I know of.

My nana taught me to knit when I was a teenager (well knit and purl anyway, she did everything else for me). I resumed knitting about 18 months ago when I noticed loads of girls at my daughters primary school wearing scarves made from novelty yarns - mostly in feathers, and decided to try making one for my girl. I have been knitting ever since.
