Hi all- I discovered this site as I was trying to find out more about entrelac knitting. I have been knitting for 100 years and just learned about this method! It is certainly impressive. I have been trying to read the notes that are listed here, but I keep getting sent to unrelated places??? I'm sure I'll eventually figure it out!!

New knitter from Chicago
Howdy,
I'm a new knitter from the Chicago area. I've been doing cross-stitch for over 20 years and sew a little, mainly things for the house like pillows and curtains and camping accessories - those are much less expensive to make than to buy and a lot easier to find!

I got started knitting after I took a beginning weaving class at Fine Line in St. Charles, IL last summer. I like the geometric aspects of weaving, but it's not very portable! Neither is cross-stitch. Knitting has a lot of geometric aspects to it and it's much more portable.

I watched the KnittingHelp videos and they helped a lot. But, I also watched the CraftSanity one - that worked out the best for me. I was having a lot of trouble figuring out how to hold the yarn initially. Now, I'm pretty zippy! And, my husband says that I'm not frowning as much while I'm knitting.

hi!

I use to knit in grade schoo and Jr, High. I am just getting a REFRESHER COURSE. Since it's been 40 some years since I have done this, I think I need it, BAD.

I'm trying different stitches.

Susan

Hi, everyone!
My name is Veronika and I'm 25 years old. I am new to knitting and got referred over to this website for help if I got stuck by a nice lady that I took a private lesson from about 3 weeks ago at a local yarn store. I live in Bothell, WA temporarily and am remodeling my home in Woodinville, WA, which I hope to be in by the end of Sept. I am originally from Czech Republic and immigrated to the US with my parents when I was 5 years old. I speak informal Czech fluently, because my parents spoke it at home while I was growing up and I went back to Czech almost every summer during my teenage years. However, English is my "first" language, because I grew up here.

My grandmother used to knit beautiful sweaters and outfits for me as a child and I have always had a great love and admiration for knitting work. I remember my grandmother's love for the craft and that is what has inspired my curiosity. My grandmother has since passed, and I never got a chance to learn the art of knitting from her. Recently, I have felt an urge to want to learn to knit and have started learning the basics.

This is a wonderful website!! And, I hope to get to know everyone on the forums, have some fun chatting, and learn more about knitting.

-Ve
