Hello! My name's Michelle and I'm a very new knitter (as of last Saturday). I decided I wanted to learn to knit to make diaper covers, so I got a book, needles (is that what they are called????) and have only figured out how to make the first row. I'm looking forward to learning everything I can. It's just so hard to find the time to practice with a 3 month old to care for.

The previous poster, Michelle, and I have some in common. I just learned to knit so I could make wool diaper covers for my daughter (9 months old). So far I have completed one soaker and an apron top for her. Not thrilled with how either came out but I just started another soaker and I can already see the difference in my knitting. I'm getting better!

Anyway, I'm a SAHM to 2 girls who share a birthday 9 years apart. I live in Iowa and don't know a single person who knits. In fact, around here all my friends look at me like I'm crazy because I'm suddenly so excited about knitting. But these are the same people who don't understand why anyone would breastfeed or cloth diaper. Go figure!

Looking forward to learning from many of you and getting to know you all! :D

Ok.. I'm coming out of hiding. I've been lurking here for quite a while, and have to admit that I've enjoyed your posts.

A little introduction..
I'm 32 and am a self taught knitter who's been an obsessed with yarn for about 5 years now. I've always been pretty crafty/artistic and work at home as a freelance graphic artist and website designer. I also dabble in making my own bath and body products but I enjoy knitting more than ANYTHING else.

Well.. that's it for now. I can get quite chatty at times, so I'm sure this is only the beginning.

Prolly should do this...
Since i have been wandering around on here for the last few weeks. I am a new knitter who found this site just by clicking around i think. or i was looking for videos...hrmm. I haven't done anything too complicated as of yet but i think this site may make me a little more adventerous.

I am 34 from Omaha and i work ridiculous amounts of hours. I have learned in the last few weeks that the part time job i have, is there just to pay for my newly acquired yarn habit! i have pretty much done nothing but scarves so far but i really do enjoy them. i have just ventured into a baby blanket and i gotta say, the biggest tangle i am going to have with that is that it is not that easy to carry around for stolen "knit moments"

anyway i am glad to be here. There appear to be a lot of talented people on this site and i hope to get as much knowledge from y'all as i can!!

Welcome Michelle, SheScraps, Silver & Brendajos!

Diaper covers looks like such fun projects!

Best to do it as a second or third project, since it's a fitted object and it's hard to get sizing right when you're just starting out, and your tension has a lot of variation still.

Brendajos, I know what you mean, I'm knitting a large bag right now, and it's so heavy on the needles it's hard to carry around with me; although I manage! I actually brought it with me for a walk this weekend, and was knitting and walking around at the same time. It was one of those days where I really wanted to get some progress made on the bag, but it was too nice to not be outside and enjoying it! LOL.

happy knitting!
Amy

This is a great site. I have learned so much already. The videos have been a life saver.

As in my earlier post, I am new to knitting and want to start a knitting circle in my area. I have looked at all the other knitting groups such as SnB, etc and find them to be too large for my taste. I am looking for a more intimate setting. Thus, I would to start a group for beginners, however long time knitters are invited to join us. We would be honored to learn from experienced knit-o-files.

I am in the Raleigh area and would like to meet at Starbucks in the Target behind Triangle Town Center on Capital Blvd. If you are interested, email me by clicking the email button below.*

Thanks
