Hello
Hello everyone!
I am new to the site and absolutely love it! I learned how to knit a year ago by a family member and still need help on certain things, but learning. This site has helped me so much!
I had been busy and had put knitting on the back burner until Sept 06, when my father was diagnosed w/ cancer. We spent many nights and days at a cancer center so I took up knitting again. I now knit on a regular basis and have decided to knit hats for those going through cancer. If any out there does the same or has any suggestions, let me know!
Thanks and have a great day,
Jessica

Welcome Jessica.

I'm very sorry about your dad, I hope he is doing better. I Googled the words "chemo caps" and got a number of sites with patterns.
Here is one of them. I'll also copy your post to the charity knitting forum here to see what other people have in mind or are doing already.

Go to the Basic Techniques videos and look at casting on first. Then look at the knitting videos. Once you have those down, give purling a try. We're here to help so come back to the How to questions section with any question at all. Believe me, there is no question out there that has not already been asked. We all began sometime so we are especially attentive to beginers

Videos are a great help

Hello, I'm Lily, who is very grateful for the videos. I learned to knit in a Mary Maxim sweater class once a week completing 2. But since then crocheted more. However, I did make a Knitted baby afghan in a lacy pattern. Now, I am in the process of learning to knit a baby cardigan from the top down. It uses terminology I had not known of. I did not know how to join a body. I thought I knew how to CO, only to find there were more than one way in the midst of a row, not using the double strand method which I was familiar with! I have never knitted in the round, so these sleeves will be my first time with 5 dpns which I want to learn to use; want to use 2 cirs also.
So I guess, you know I will be havning a lot of questions. Thanks in advance, to all you giving, experienced knitters to the many of us aspiring to become good enough to in turn help others.
Lily

Hello, another newcomer here.

Well, there's not much to say about myself, except I currently live in Texas and in September I'm going off to college in Chicago, so I've been frantically knitting these past few months to prepare myself for the climate change This community seems like a great place to share ideas, and I'm excited to be a part of it!

Hello everyone, what a wonderful site. I like many of you, have quite a stash of yarn at home and am always looking for new ideas. Just started with Mericash. what a wonderful soft yarn, so different from the bulkies I usually use. love the idea of shipping a project around and of course like doing the charity projects. look forward to chatting and knitting with you. Barbara
