I'm Mary and I just regestered. I'm a pet groomer, soaper...well I guess I try lots of stuff. I've done a little knitting and have mostly found it frustrating. I got a DVD and made myself finish a scarf. Socks have my attention right now. I so want to be able to turn a heel! LOL! Last year, one of my grooming customers mentioned she knits...well, actually, I think she was relaying a story about her dog eating her wood needles but that's another story! I must have pounced on her a bit harder than I realised when I asked if she knit socks, because she remembered and this Christmas she gave me needles, a pattern and yarn that self -patterns into the coolest socks! Our local yarn store where she got it, will let people come and hang out and learn. I'm a little intimidated as now she'll be asking if they are done! She's just the best and I so want to do well by this yarn. It's in the other room so I can't see the name but It's so cool!

I'm so glad I found this site now too. I've looked over the videos some and I'm sure they will be invaluable. I'll be around and will post when I can. Thanks for having me!
Mary <><

Hi! I've used this site alot and didn't realize there were forums! I'm so excited! I actually found the forums while searching for P2TOG TBL...I was totally doing it wrong and glad I found this!

My name is Barb...I'm 31 and I learned to crochet when I was about 10. A dear friend taught me how to knit nearly 3years ago, shortly after my Nanna passed. I discovered my Nanna knit, and had started an afghan when my mom was pregnant with me. I acquired the pieces of the afghan, a pair of bent needles, some old old yarn and the pattern written on the small paper of an assignment pad. I was determined to learn to knit.

So I did and have been knitting every since.

I've been married for 8yrs, and my hubby and I have 6 kids, a son who's 7 and our daughters are 6,5,4,3 and 1 month.

I look forward to posting with you!

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Kim and I'm 28 and a SAHM to 2 children, Cam who is almost 3 and Meg who is 6 months. I'm really a newbie knitter. I learned a week and a half ago by watching Amy's videos. Right now I'm in the middle of 2 projects: an orange cotton washcloth for my son & a scarf for my Mom for her birthday. You all seem to provide such great info! I'm so glad I found these forums while I'm still learning.

My name is Chris (OldSoul). I've been making jewelry and painting watercolors for years, but I have just started knitting. I've visited this site often for the How To videos. I bought books, but the videos really make a difference. So far, I have knit about 4 scarves (got waay carried away on one--I could wrap it around my neck about 3 times and still almost trip on it).

I am finding that yarn is as addictive to me as beads or watercolor supplies. I have to work just to pay for my hobbies! The added bonus is that with my hands busy, I am snacking much less at night!

So thank you, to whoever took the time to make and post the videos. It has really helped enormously in building my confidence. Now, all I need is more space to keep my growing stash of beautiful yarns!

Hello - I'm new!
I am Suzy, aka DragonsChest. I learned how to knit about 26 years ago. I knitted for a while, then moved on to other things. I picked up yarn and needles again about two weeks ago, and I am enjoying it immensely.

From the basic techniques section of this site, I learned that I knit in the Continental method. And that this is what is used mainly in Germany. And guess what? That was where I was taught to knit, while I was an exchange student in Hamburg, Germany.

Anyhoo, I plan on zipping around the forum, reading and learning. Thanks for having a place like this. See ya!

Weeeellll, now I feel left out! I've been posting to this site for more than a year, but I think I got so caught up in getting questions answered that I never DID introduce myself!

So here I am. I'm an almost-3-year-old SAHM. My twin boys are 4 years old now, and while they keep me busy, I've always had plenty of time to sew, upholster, replace my name it!

The truth is that I'm too dumb to know when something should be "too hard" for me, so last time I got real and truly bored, I decided to take up knitting! I bought yarn and needles to make a sweater for my unborn niece...who was 2 weeks from her due date! With amazing help from the videos and everyone here, I managed to finish it--lace pattern and all--on the day she was born. And I've been an addict ever since.

Big hugs and kisses to all of you for being so supportive and kind and encouraging! I know I still need help sometimes, and you all are wonderful.

ETA: I'm almost THIRTY, not THREE!!!
