Hi! My name is Sara and I had my mom teach me to knit when I was home for Christmas. I had knit some when I was little (not that mom remembers!) and wanted to start again. I discovered quickly that I need to visually see how something is done so I was at a loss with my mom not being here (sheís in NY)! I feel so lucky that I was able to find this site - Amy's videos have been such a great help (even if I do have to watch them over and over again!).
I originally was just going to knit cat snuggles for a local animal shelter, but have become addicted! I've finished a baby blanket
for a friend, a few baby/preemie hats and I'm working on a scarf for my sister. Of course I have 100 other things I want to knit...pacing myself is difficult (and there isnít enough money!)! I did my first baby hat on DPNs (learned from the videos) and Iím so excited that Iíll never have to stitch another seam!
These boards have been very helpful - the knowledge is priceless and the tips have really helped me become a better knitter! My husband is thrilled that I've started knitting it means I'm calmer and not coming up with a long list of things to do for him!
