Might as well introduce myself before I really start nailing you guys with a million questions.

My name is Jessica, and Im 21 and going to school to be a police officer and trying to start my own buisness, maybe a yarn store, but I have some more details to work out and alot more to learn .
I live with my wonderful boyfriend who I have been with for 2 years, and we are enjoying the life were building together, when we find time, Lol! We are both pretty selfish with our time so kids are a no. He is an engineer, and I go to school, so time is precious around here. Between our saltwater tanks and my coral propagating, drag racing and restoring Corvette's, I try to squeeze knitting in there (usually during class ).

I learned how to knit about a month ago while my mom had breat cancer. I had alot of free time while I was taking care of her so my best friend tought me how to knit. As it turned out it came pretty natural and I LOVE it!! Im totally addicted and this site helped. Im eager to learn and try everything. Spinning and dying are really sparking my intrest right now. I look forward to getting to know everyone and learning frow your knowledge.

Hello everyone
So I've been stalking this site for a few days now because I just learned to knit. I didn't realize until now that there was a forum on here too.

So, my name is Melissa or Mellie for short. I'm 23, married and my inspriration to start knitting is my little 7-month old ball of sunshine, Micaela.
We live in the Boston area though I'm originally from CT.

In terms of knitting, like I said, I recently learned. I'm on my second project (though the first isn't complete because I ran out of yarn

). The first was a blanket, this one is a scarf and next, I'm hoping to get some pants underway for my dd.

I will probrably bog you guys down with questions in just a few days. I'm looking forward to getting to know you and getting advice from the pros.

I finally joined in the forum after months of looking over this website! Not too long ago I purchased the Denise Needles from Amy, absolutely love them!

My husband of 15 years and I have two wonderful children, DS (12) and DD (almost 9). I love being able to homeschool the both of them and being able to spend lots of time watching them grow up.

I have always thought it would be neat to learn to knit, but never really tried it. However it was my DD who really wanted to learn to knit. At Christmas I purchased her a knitting kit, and she was thrilled. Between lots of books from the library, a friend's help, and more help from the local knitting store, we both learned to knit! Although my DD is enjoying her new hobby, it was me who became completely enthralled with knitting! I have quickly filled my cupboards with all kinds of yarn, patterns and knitting supplies!

I have finished a variety of simple projects and have several "on the needles". My newest project is my very first sweater, and I can't wait to see how it turns out. I take my knitting everywhere, in the car, on the plane, to church, while I wait for my kids, to the beach, camping... I always have a project with me. xxx Recently I finished a blanket as a wedding gift and was surprised how much the newlyweds loved it. They couldn't believe someone would go to so much trouble to make them a gift!

I am looking forward to being a part of the forum when I can and when I need help (which could be a lot looking at a couple of these patterns I have!). What a great website for knitters!

Welcome to all of the new knitters.

As you can see I haven't been a member for very long but I have learned so much from the wonderful people on this forum, and I could have never learned to knit without the videos.

This is a great forum, in my opinion the best on the web.

Good luck,

Genny, Gen

I just picked up knitting 2 days ago. I had gotten some books from the library, some yarn, and some needles. The books weren't much help though, since the pictures don't move. I found this site while looking for a video of how to cast-on. SO helpful!

I haven't really started anything yet, I'm still trying to figure out why I'm getting an extra stitch every couple rows. I did read the thread on that topic, and counting out every row I do is seeming to help for some reason. Odd how that works!

I'm still looking for a "real live" person around this area to show me things and point out mistakes.

Anyway, I'm 29 and I live in Wisconsin on Lake Michigan with my husband, and every other week with my two stepsons who are 11 and 8. I also have a dog, 2 cats, and a sun conure (the loudest bird in existence, I swear!).

I look forward to learning and getting help from all you fine people!

Just wanted to introduce myself. I am Nicole. I have been knitting since I was a kid, but just now learning how to read a pattern properly and do the different stitches.

I have been coming to for awhile to get help on abbreviations and watch how to videos. I think this is a wonderful site.

Talk to you all soon,

Hi! I'm Becca. I started to knit about 2 years ago, but haven't been very consistent. I've finished a couple of scarves and a summer sweater. I've started a lot more than that! I just get sidetracked... currently I'm working on a baby blanket that I started a little over a year ago. I need to get to work on my stash of yarn because I'm running out of room! Hopefully visiting here will motivate me to knit more frequently!

Hello from Oregon
Hi, all. I'm Suz.

I've been knitting since I was 5--I'm now 61. I used to knit complicated stuff--cable, argyle, and all sorts of fancy stitches like popcorn and lacy stitches (cuz I was too lazy to learn how to crochet). Now that I'm older, I lack the patience and concentration for anything too complex, so I create my own super simple stitches and patterns.

There's a book I LOVE, that I found at a garage sale for 50-cents, that has tons of great stitches in it. It's from back in the 1940s. I think I'll go look it up on Amazon and see if it's still available. If so, I'll post it on my website and here if there's a place for it.

Anyway, I'm glad to be here. I've already linked to this fabulous forum. If any of you have websites and want to do a link swap, PM me and we'll get it done.
