My name's April - very new knitter. I started just a couple of months ago and am currently on my second project. I'm a single mom, two girls, and we live in L.A. I never thought of myself before as someone who would enjoy knitting. I started because my 9-year-old daughter wanted to learn so I went to a class for me to learn how to teach her. She's still not knitting regularly, but I am nearly every day! Thanks to Amy and everyone else here. Looking forward to being a part of this community.

"Newcomer"
Hello!
I`m new to the list and I want to say first, I love wool since my childhood, I like knitting, felting, free stitching, handdyeing my own yarns and wool....and I`m very happy to find this list!
The "one-row-buttonholes"-video is one of my highlights, I`ve knitted the moebius-wrap from wollmeise.blogspot.com, it`s great!
Now, I`m surching for a lace-pattern, to knit a raglan-pullover, top-down with a big neckline for summer, anyone help me?? I`m not sure, how it works....
Greetings from Germany and happy knitting,
Marion

Welcome April and Marion
Marion, there is a forum here called Pattern Central that will help you with finding a good pattern for that sweater. I copied your post and put it there. Go have a look to see if anyone has any ideas for you.

Hi! I'm a new member to you site, and am hoping I can find some instruction for adding beads to the socks I'm knitting. I'm taking a class, but can't remember how to place the pre-strung beads -- my teacher does not use a crochet hook, and I don't remember her slipping a stitch, either.

Welcome everyone

Val, I copied your post to the how to section. Look there to see some answers. The title of the thread relates to beaded socks.

Momtoks, don't be afraid to ask for advice, we're here to help. The how to section is a good place to start as well as Amy's videos.

Thank you for this great site. I love that you can watch the video.
That helps me so much. This is my first time on and I need 'hat help!" I can't figure out how to knit a hat.....If you sew it at the end or you knit a tube that gets narrower at the top?
