Welcome. I copied your post to the Pattern Central Forum and titled it "Warm Weather knits". Have a look there soon. I'll bet you get some nice responses.

I never really grasped it back then, but got into it a couple of years ago, while Dad was sick in hospital. It helped pass the time while he was sleeping etc. Unfortunately Dad passed away on July 16, 2005 from his brain tumour, but I am still knitting. Its something that reminds me of him, something I have because of him, and something that only he and I shared an interest in (my sisters weren't interested) so its a special thing for me. I haven't pulled out my needles in a few months, been busy with a new job, and the summer heat doesn't encourage knitting! Plus the store I get my knitting supplies from, cuts right back to basic wool in the summer, and that's not too inspiring! But winter has arrived, and the craving for the wool and needles has finally won! Pulled out my stash, and have been inspired to try a hooded scarf! I hate my ears getting cold! I know I will be coming back to the forum many times for hints and lots of help! Would be good to make some friends that share my addiction. Lots of people call me an old granny when they find out I knit! Hope to get to know you all soon.
Welcome I was very moved to read how you learned to knit. There are lots of friends here you haven't met yet, including several from NZ. Keep coming back

Hi, I'm KT, a new knitter. I love it. I've made about 7 scarves, 5 washcloths, and 1 beanie. I just moved to Washington, USA. My boyfriends mom was the one who taught me how to knit but since we moved from California I've been teaching myself. I'm still learning how to use these forums, but I'm excited to be here. I hope to make some new friends also.

Introduction
Hello All,

This is my first post on site. I am not quite sure that I am posting correctly so please let me know if I need to post another way. Thank you all for allowing me to join your group. I have used the knitting.com videos and love Knit Pick needles. I just knitted my very first lace shawl and am in love now. I am currently trying to learn double knitting by chart and am not having much success to date but will keep going ahead. Once again, thank you and look forward to getting to know you all. Deborah

so i forgot to introduce myself when i first joined the forum so I figured it was better late than never. My name's Courtneyand i live in ATL but i was born in chicago along with the rest of my family all of who still live there. No one in my family does anything crafty which is i think why i wanted to learn. i lik being different and I lik feeling i can actually do something productive and useful. i started about a year and a half ago but i didn't get much done in that time until i decided i was going to make everyone in my family something for their birthday. i'm still scared to take on patterns other than scarves but i hav done a caliometry, roses, and a poncho. ummmmmm, i'm 19, in college, considering becoming a high school history teacher...?
well, i guess i'm done. btw, this is a great site- this site is actually how i learned to knit and hav learned to do everything because i'm a very visual person. so awesome website! and for those who hav answered my posts in the past and helped me out thanks a bunch! ^_^ i really appreciate it!
Courtney
