I knew what it meant. My hubby is half French and has used it on occasion... Learning french is also mandatory in Canada too. I probably knew it way earlier. Isn't that the first thing you do as a kid when looking up words in a dictionary or a translator?

All I know is it was the first thing my boss would shout when something got screwed up in the winery(which was often and usually his own doing). I think I first looked it up when they didn't have a subtitle for it in the French movie I was watching.

I just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself. I've been reading this website for about a month now and already bought the CD. I'm not really a new knitter - I learned in my teens from my grandmother. Many years have passed since then ... I won't say how many ... and I decided to re-learn how to knit. I'm currently knitting the afghan in "Learn to Knit Afghan" by Barbara Walker. It's a lot of fun and I'm learning a lot of new techniques. Amy's videos have already helped me a couple times when the written directions in the book were confusing.

I can't believe it took me so long to become addicted - knitting is great and I wish I could do it all the time!

This is a fantastic site. Thank you, Amy! You are a knitting goddess!

I live in NYC and have been knitting for about 2 years now. My grandmother tried to teach me when I was a kid, but I could never sit still long enough to actually knit anything after casting on. I decided to try knitting after seeing a medical student knitting serenely while I was speaking at her hospital. I was entranced by her Skacel circular needles! I went to the Barnes and Noble, but realized that even if I had a book I wouldn't know where to get yarn or those cool needles. As I looked out the window, frustrated, I saw The Yarn Company. I walked over, drooled over their yarns, bought their book, The Yarn Girls' Guide to Simple Knits, got myself some Skacel needles, and haven't looked back!

I am a newbie oldie My aunt who was born in Holland taught me how to knit when I was 7 and was very patient with me. I knitted small projects like scarfs and squares and then stopped in my mid thirties. In November of 2004 my SIL's step mother ask me if I knew anyone who knew how to knit and I said "I do I do!" She wanted to learn how to knit so she could knit some of the fun fur scarfs. I sat down with her and showed her how and got so excited over all the new fur yarns and chunky yarns that I haven't put the needles down since. I took my knitting to work and knitted fun fur scarfs during lunch I ended up making about 40 of them from Thanksgiving to Christmas It was so much fun. I haven't tried to tackle big projects but at the moment I have become addicted to the fan and feather pattern. I have done baby blankets in this pattern and am now working on a shawl for my sil in fan and feather. It's very relaxing and certainly keeps me out of the malls.
I also am an avid collector of antique and collectible clothing buttons. Hope to knit with buttons soon
Love the sight and hope to get to join in with all the chatter

Hello All!

I am very new to knitting and wanted to introduce myself. I have been knitting for about a month and am on the verge of completing my first hat (we'll see...). I am also taking a class and my last one is next Tuesday - Boo! So...I will be visiting a lot more in the near future! I've already been reading a lot of the posts and those are a great help, not to mention this awesome website!!

Thanks for all the great advice so far and I look forward to chatting more!
