duh! moving my post to introduce yourself, love this site
Not being acquainted with all the ins and outs of forums, I posted this wrong the first time (used new instead of reply).

Hi, my name is Carol and I just discovered this site last week and joined last friday. This is my first post.

I have only been knitting for one year. I have learned from books. It's great to find a site with free videos. I intend to order the CD.

I am left handed but knit right handed using the English method. I was told at a knitting convention in Santa Clara last year that the Continental method is faster. I just can't seem to get the hang of it...I have tried probably more than a dozen times. I can't even successful knit one stitch using it.

Should I keep trying or is there something about having to use the right hand needle to catch up stitches that makes it more difficult for southpaws?

Carol

This is a great place to have those questions answered. So far, every question I've had has been answered here in the forum, or by Amy's video demos. Every question.

Welcome!

Hi all.
I'm so glad I heard about this site - my knitting teacher at the local yarn store told me about it.
After watching the video of the seed stitch, I finally did it correctly! I had tried numerous times, and still don't know what I was doing wrong before, but the explanation of knitting the purls and purling the knits, and identifying the purls with their nooses and the knits with their scarves FINALLY got through to me, and I knitted a successful seed stitch swatch!
So, Thanks!
This looks like a fun forum - I look forward to participating! I'm expecting a baby in less than 3 weeks, so if I don't get to post often in the next few months, you'll know why!
I'm a beginning knitter, and I've planned enough easy projects to get me through until the end of summer or so. I'm sure I'll have to get on here for help!

Hey everyone! I am new here - have been reading through the posts for a while now and thought it was about time I jumped in. I know KellyK very well - hi Kelly! and that means Howie also.

Like everyone else here I am an obsessed knitter with a stash the size of...well, let's just say I'll be okay if sheep go on strike

Happy knitting to all

Hey guys I'm new to the site and to knitting in general. I started back around september when my best friend suggested that it would be a good way to stop snacking but until January, all I was doing was simple knit scarfs. Now I'm trying to learn some new stuff and I just finished my first hat. Didn't turn out to well though, but at least I finished it. Me and my roomate really are in love with knitting now and this website has been a huge help.

Anyway, just wanted to pop by, say Hi, and introduce myself.
