Hello all, I'm Krystal, 22. I have been knitting now for about a week, using Amy's videos and just finished my second scarf! I've been lurking around for a while now wanting to learn and after finally diving in, I gotta say I am addicted. Hope to get to know you all.

Hello. Konnichiwa. Annyong. And all those other languages. In any event, I'm Caitlin/Serenity. This is a shocking age for all of you I'm sure, but I'm only 16 and I'm a knitting nut. My friend Colleen taught me how (and she was taught by her mum) last december, and I've been addicted ever since. Sad to say I finished my first scarf only a week ago, and knitted it all the way through, though I can purl.

I found this site on google, looking to learn binding-off. The video was incredibly helpful! now I'm on a new scarf for a loved one, and plan to implement purling and possibly ribbing into this one.

I live in Bellingham, a few hours out of Seattle. This is the most beautiful place on Earth I swear it. Autumn is comming up and I cant wait to make some scarves and attempt some sweaters maybe (I'm not sure if I'm up to that skill level). Especially during U.S. history class, man is it boring there xxx

And as with everyone else, how can you not love knitting emoticons? Anyways, sorry to make such a long post, but I'm just excited to have found a community of knitters! No one else in my town, or my age bracket shares my passion, so this is really good for me.

I'll quiet up now

No need to be quiet, and believe it or not, you're not our only teenager around here! The age of the knitter is irrelevent--it's the knitting that brings us together!

Karen -- I notice you are not far from the Center of the Knitting Universe -- a.k.a. Chicagoland. You need to get hooked into our Illinois thread. Lots of us Illinoisians try to get together about once/month -- check out the plans here. Welcome!

HI everyone! My name is Deb. I am married with three daughters. I have always wanted to learn how to knit, but never did anything about it. My grandmother ALWAYS knit me mittens for Christmas. I never thought to ask her to teach me before she passes away, so learning is sort of a tribute to her.

My three daughters ages 8/10/ and 13 all learned how to knit form their step-mother so I actually learned some basics from them. My 10 year old can cast on like nobody's business!

Last weekend I bought a couple of books to teach myself and when I became confused as to which way to cross the yarn over, etc. I looked online and found this site. The videos are so awesome! Any question I had was quickly answered.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi. I'll be looking around the site to see what sort of motivation I can find.
