Welcome everyone!!

Kelly H.--If you're planning on making blankets for Christmas, start now! We all have these wonderful plans for the holidays, and somehow never quite make all the things we thought we'd have time for!

I second that!!
One of the reasons I first took up knitting was to make gifts, but it's a lot harder than it sounds, especially blankets!!

Welcome to the forums! :D

Well, thought I would say hello. My name is Amanda and I am pretty new to knitting, about 4 months now I guess, and I am really enjoying it. I also make soap and I am getting ready to start school. I am 25 and married, but with no kids. I am looking forward to learning here. Oh, and I can't spell and already I am a yarn whore. I my stash.

Sounds like you'll fit right in here, then! Welcome! There are some days I think I knit just as an excuse to have the yarn!

I've been lurking for a while and started the hourglass sweater as a result of the knit-a-long thread. I have been knitting off and on for a couple of years but basically throws and scarves. I have just started looking for sweater patterns and have a few on my "to do" list. Socks are also on my list to learn and I have recently added sock yarn to my stash.

I love Amy's videos and can't thank her enough for putting this site together. It helped me over the weekend to do a SSK which seems simple now that I have done it. Watching her video while I was doing the stitch was wonderful and gave me so much confidence that I was doing it correctly.

Hope to chat with everyone, soon.

Hi all! I am originally a sometime crochet person. I got a How to Knit kit for Christmas and now I cannot stop! I am working on a simple stockinette st sweater and attempted socks to match! (The yarn was on sale natch) I have found that I can be captivated by reading a knitting pattern like a good book. Hope to talk to ya'll lots!

Hi and welcome!. That's partly how my knitting addiction got restarted...a knitting kit purchased during the holidays plus Knifty Knitter round looms and rectangular loom. The kit included plastic needles which I don't like. Haven't tried the Knifty Knitter looms, yet. Decided to learn to knit inthe round with more versatile needles. I crochet sometimes, too. Just been focused on knitting at this point.

I'm new to knitting and I just want to say that your site is awesome!

Its going to help so much!

I started with a loom knitting kit, but I quickly felt too constricted by it. I'm now in the quest to learn continental knitting and learning all I can. This is great! OH! I found this site thru a Boston Terrier board and a member that knitted a sweater for her bostie.

Hi! My name is Becky and I'm new to knitting. I started a few months ago with a knifty knitter loom set but it didnt take too long before I wanted to learn to knit for real.

I've bought several learn to knit books and kits and I'm having some success, but these videos are WONDERFUL!

I just want to thank you for such a great resource.
