Hi everyone,
I have taught myself the very basics of both knitting and crocheting. I always gave up when it came time to learn how to read patterns. I just couldn't seem to master it. Now, I'm determined. I was thrilled when I found this forum and I'm looking forward to talking with all of you.
A little bit about me. I'm 35 years old and the mother of 4 children. I just re-entered the work force after being a stay-at-home mom since the birth of my first daughter 13 years ago.
Chat with you soon.

*stands up* My name is Jessica, and I'm a knittaholic.

Well. I'm 18. I've been knitting for almost a year. For three years I was making attempts at learning to knit. Finally I visited learntoknit.com and it finally clicked! For a while I was happy with basic knit, purl, & binding off, so I didn't do much. Then I learned increases and decreases and got my first pair of circulars and it's been addiction ever since. I just learned how to use DPNs & do fairisle (thanks to this loverly website) in December.

I like knitting for Blythe best because I'm impatient. And since Blythe's measurements are all under 2", I can get things finished pretty quickly. Hehehe.

Just Found this Wonderful Site!
Hi! My name is Betty.

I've been knitting and crocheting since I was 8 years old. My Great-Aunt taught me to knit (the "German" way) and my Grandmother taught me how to crochet. I love making things for my family, relatives, and friends. Recently our family had a run on new babies and I've been really busy making baby things. This is a wonderful resource because of the wonderful videos and the clear, concise instructions.

My Great-Aunt and Grandmother made everything without reading patterns so I've had to teach myself how to read them. This site will be very helpful to me because even though I've been doing this for 45 years, I'm never too old to learn new tricks!

Thank you again for being here and I look forward to "talking" to all of you!

Just found this site
I taught myself to knit a year and a half ago and am absolutely addicted! I found the videos on the site the other day. They are great. Things that I thought would be too hard don't see too daunting now. I'm ready to try new things now! This board seems like a great resourse too. I'll be hanging out!

Sorry I posted this in the wrong spot. I should have clicked on post reply and I click on new topic

Hello, I have never knitted in my life, I did do some crocheting once, made the weirdest looking blanket only because I didn't know how to stop and turn the right way and it just grew into a triangle shape ,it was like a king size blanket at one end and a baby blanket at the other end. So I quit. Now at 55 I am hoping to teach myself a new craft. I sew and have made clothes that I still wear. I have brought tons of craft items with the best intent to try and learn something new, but to be truely honest....I have two things that I have brought and never even opened, one is a painting kit with easel and oil paints.....I use to paint and draw when I was in high school, thought that one day I might be an art teacher, but I got married and had babies that needed me. The other craft item is something that I talked my DH into buying off of EbAY for me , it's a Donna DoBerry(sp) one stroke painting kit. There were 7 different kits all in one bid......over $200.........that is down in the basement somewhere unopened too!

The only thing that I have gotten into as of late and liked and stuck to is Stained Glass. I went to classes and fell in love with it.DH was the first one to go to classes and when I watched him I knew I had to learn also. We've set up a small stained glass studio but we haven't made anything to sell yet. It all just gets made as gifts so far.


Like I said I have never knitted before , but I truely want to learn and I'd like to be able to knit something that I would be proud to wear. I went to AmazonBooks.com and got 'Knitting and Crocheting for Dummies' I also have some books coming from Ebay on the topic, all for beginners.

Now that I have found this site I am hoping that I can learn to knit with the help of those that know how.

Nana,
