Hey all!

I'm 18 and in VA, and I taught myself knitting around X-mas of '07. I got a kit from Costco but didn't like the yarn because it was hard to use, so I then discovered the wonderful world of a yarn store!
I just want to say that it's been really fun, I love being able to make things out of just a ball of yarn. And I can knit while my friend crochets! My motto for yarn is the softer the better, but I have a tendency to starts projects then get a cool idea for another and start it, leaving many projects unfinished
Thanks!

I suppose I should get with the introductions. :D I registered ages ago when someone here linked to the tutorial on my blog for how to make a pattern row marker. I'm a regular over on the knittyboards and really don't spend much time elsewhere. I have nearly 200 blogs on my blogroll to keep up with! I rediscovered this board yesterday, like several others I've seen, when I was kindly reminded that it'd been a while since I posted. I'm glad I came back to check it out! I'll be spending more time here in the future.

Hi there - I found this site and have been using the videos to help me with learning to knit -- it's a BIG help for me to see the stitches being made! Written descriptions are ok, but these videos are SO much easier for me!

I must have learned to knit many years ago (can't recall when or how!, and picked it up again right before Christmas '05. It really helped with my stress level thru the holidays --everyone got nice scarves for Christmas that year!

I'm pretty much a beginner - scarves, hats, several prayer shawls, etc. Am going to sign up for a knitting class this summer thru my local park & rec - would love to move up into clothing (vests, socks, maybe sweaters) but when I read a pattern, it scares me! Think I just need some encouragement --

Roberta

Howdy everyone!

Very glad to be here. What an awesome place, huh? I've learned a bunch from the videos. They've helped me move past scarves and I'm doing my first sweater now!! Yay for me! I will consider myself a beginner until I can knit up a pair of socks. DPN's scare me like no horror movie ever could! LOL.

Everyone have a wonderful day!

hi all
Hello,
I've ended up at this forum a few times doing searches about different knitting techniques, so I thought I'd bite the bullet and register. I'm happy to be here -- it seems like a great community.
I've been knitting for a few years, but I just started grad school and now I've realized how great crafting can be for destressing and avoiding schoolwork...
I hope you all don't mind one more newbie!
Right now I'm off to do a search for some threads about edging techniques so I can take advantage of the collective knitting wisdom here.
Thanks!

Hello Fellow Knitters,

I have been roaming around this site for a while and the bug bit me to finally introduce myself.

Four years ago I had the urge to learn knitting and taught myself with the help of a book. At the moment I love to knit gloves.
Wow, nothing can surpass custom knit gloves for a gift to another or even yourself. Working fingers are a great time.

Glad that there are so many of us and hope KnittingHelp.com's population continues to increase with talented knitters.
Thanks for all of the educational info.
