Hello knitters ! I've been lurking for awhile; found you guys after using the videos to learn a few things. I've been knitting 'this time' for about 6 months..........did it a little when I was in my 20's, and thought I'd forgotten everything. I stumbled upon Etsy.com last Spring, and was motivated to try it again, by all the great yarns now being offered !

I'm learning so much more this time around........never thought ""I"" would be able to knit a PAIR OF SOCKS ! ! ! But I can ! And who knows what's next ? ! ?

Finding this forum was like a treasurefield, and I have been reading posts from many of you for months now. Thought it was about time to come out of the shadows !

I asked for help in my first post yesterday, and was helped by so many, right off the bat. Thank you all for being there..............now, let's have some fun !

Hi, my name is Joe. I'm from New Albany, IN (which is very near Louisville, KY). My Aunt Shirley taught me to knit when I was a kid, but I never did much with it because I never quite mastered how to hold the yarn so it wasn't a laborious process.

I decided I wanted a knit scarf, so I got some yarn and some needles and made me one--and it only took about two years to finish it. After that scarf, I decided to learn to do it right. Found this site, and I've been busy re-learning how to knit.

So far I've knit two more scarves and a dish cloth, but I'm hoping to get a little bolder and try something more challenging.

I'm enjoying reading a lot of the posts and seeing that the problems I'm having aren't unique, and that's good to know.

Joe

I'm getting tired of scarves, but everything else frightens me.
That probably shoudln't have made me chuckle but it did. What is the worst that could happen if you tried something new?

For me...the worst that happened was that i got addicted.

not a bad tradeoff!

Just introducing myself...I've been lurking for several weeks and thought I'd finally take the plunge.

I'm Ferol, from Ohio. I'm a newbie to knitting, but I've discovered its addictiveness and really enjoy what I've learned so far! I've been a crocheter for years, but I always thought of learning to knit as daunting - turns out I was wrong. So far I've knitted I plain garter stitch scarf in a funky yarn, and an Irish Hiking Scarf in a plain yarn. I've also got approximately a frillion practice swatches that I'm not entirely sure what to do with. lol

Anyway, I really enjoy the site, and look forward to learning more!

It IS amazing how quickly you can go from scarves to socks !
I think the most freeing thing I read a few months back was the statement that there are only 2 stitches in knitting.........knit and purl ! That totally opened my eyes.........it sounds like such an obvious truth, but a beginner gets all wound up in the words 'increase' and 'decrease' and 'yarn over', etc...........you think OH MY GOD, I can never do all that ! But that earlier statement made me realize that everything is just a variation of the very basic two stitches, and I slowed down and took it one step at a time.

Don't get me wrong, there is SO MUCH for me still to learn, but it all seams so DO-ABLE now !

Yes! I also live in Broken Arrow. I'm going to my first meeting of the Fiber Guild in Bixby on Saturday, Jan 27. Maybe I'll meet you there?
