River if you need help, I'll help you. I also just started knitting and I have figured out some things, many things I learned from this site, and there are many more things I need to lern still, but I have downloaded step-by-step instructiones, with pictures and so on. So anything give me a holler. It will be good to help someone in my shoes because I know how frustrating vcan be this sometimes!

Intro

Hey there all

I decided to pick up the knitting needles again after a l-o-n-g absence (I used to knit when I was a little girl & I'm almost 50 now!). My kids bought me an array of knitting needles & a 'how-to book' for Christmas a few years ago, but I haven't had the time to do much more than play.

About a decade ago, I tried to relearn how to knit but using the books I consulted, the needles/yarn/technique didn't feel familiar with how I knitted when I was a kid, so I put it aside. I hold my ball-end yarn in my left hand, like I do when I crochet. I've since found this way of knitting isn't taught as much anymore???

Anyway, I'm ready to plunge in again and decided my first project will be a pair of simple garter stitch socks.

I'm also a crocheter (mostly thread crochet), spinner, weaver, dye-er, and sometimes tatter. I make milk soaps, lotions and other bath & body stuff, cheese, beeswax candles & other oddities that suit my mood at the time!

I am married & we have 4 children. 2 are still living with us. We live on a small homestead and raise most of our own food (meats, vegetables, fruits & honey). I work full time outside the home.

Bare with my newbie knitting questions!

Hi! I'm pretty new myself, started knitting this summer. This site is great!!!

That's so neat that you grow your own food...that makes me want honey really, really badly now. Maybe for breakfast tomorrow I'll splurge and have honey toast. mmm. Also I want cheese. Your post made me hungry!

I've pulled off the honey supers for this fall but we haven't had time to extract the honey yet.

Took the pigs to the processor this morning. Two for our family and 4 for friends/customers. YUM!

Howdy y'all
I'm Anna (aka spasmo) and I have been knitting for about four months now. I have become addicted to yarn - there are so many wonderful yarns out there - petting yarn at lunch as become a favorite past time of mine. I have been making lots of scarves - and making an effort to learn something new with each one. I look forward to meeting y'all and getting more experience knitting.

Haha, I only understand what that means because I just read Secret Life of Bees.
