Hello! I am new here and really want to learn how to knit (especially for my daughters, 4 and 2). Our local Library had knitting classes recently but I was unable to attend. I have been online the past few nights looking at different sites and was lucky to find this site, with the "How To" videos. I have a few questions, but will post them seperately. Have a nice night!

Hello!!
I've been knitting for about a year now, and have been searching all over for websites for knitting, but haven't found one I like until I came across knittinghelp.com. I am so glad I found this website! It is a tremendous help and I can always come here if I can't find anyone that can help me. This is my knitting resource. I love all the videos and they're extremely helpful. Thank you!!! :D

Yes, we knitters consider sitting on the couch and knitting a productive weekend.

I'm a newbie
The videos have been a lifesaver to me many times. The loop stitch was used for a scarf and the videos taught me that cables are not scary. When I was first learning, I was very frustrated. I could not bring my knitting instructor with me everywhere. So imagine my joy when I found the videos. I sat there intent, needles and yarn in hand, ready to learn. And then it clicked! I was knitting. Scarves, hats, ponchos, sweaters, purses, and mittens! I was knitting! :XX:

Even as I have gained more experience, I still return to the videos to see what else I can learn. And I recommend the website to all knitting friends who are struggling.

TY TY TY For the videos, patterns, tips, and now this forum. I look forward to getting to know everyone!

As for my personal 411:
I am a 29 year old wife and mother of 4 dds. Ages range from 9-6 w/ 7 year old twins in the middle.
I am a full-time college student pursuing a degree in Social Work. I plan on becoming a clinical SW with emphasis on women/children who are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault
I started knitting this past July and confess I am an addict!
I love knitting purses!

I'm outgoing and fun. I love meeting people and always ask a ton of questions!
