Hello
i am new to knittinghelp.com. i am a fairly new knitter. i tried to teach myself years ago, but couldn't get past the cast on. a couple of years ago, a girlfriend-whom i had taught to crochet-said she had taught herself to knit. not to be outdone, i pulled out the age-old kit and gave it another whirl. in no time, i had a scarf to go with my new coat

now, i am trying to advance past knit and purl, and make something besides dog sweaters.

i'm so glad i found knittinghelp.comi'm sure it will be an invaluable resource.

Hello everyone!

I'm a relatively new knitter (taught myself last fall by using the videos on knittinghelp.com - this is a great website!)

I've done the obligatory garter stitch scarf, and a small easy shawl. Now I'm working on a felted purse and a lace scarf. Hopefully I'll get a camera soon, and post some FO pictures here.

I'm thrilled to have found this site. I was searching for instructions on how to "p2togtbl'" and found y'all. Never did find out how to do the above. Guess I'll have to go to my LYS for some instructions.

If anyone can explain the stitch variation, I would be most appreciative.

Actually, p2tobtbl was one of the first things I looked up on this site, since I needed it for a lace scarf I'm working on.

There's a link to a video in the Glossary section, here: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...ons_explained/

Introducing myself
Hi,

Just wanted to introduce myself. I am a self taught knitter and the videos here are invaluable for seeing how some techniques are done when the flat descriptions in books fall a bit short! I never knit the
obligatory beginner scarf :D just jumped right in with a pair of pants
for my baby girl and went from there. Have had some disappointments
with sock knitting but I am working out the problems hopefully...I live
in Finland and wooly socks in the winter are a must! I am currently
working on my first intarsia project (a sweater with a simple color
motif on the front) and my first impressions are I hate intarsia! I
think I better give it some time though because doing anything for
the first time feels awkward.

Can't Continental
I've been cruising around the web and this is just the best, most comprehensive, professionally done, user friendly site for knitters out there. As just a wash cloth knitter, I am that low brow "thrower" type, who is trying to move into the bigger leagues using the Continental method to create beautiful scarves, sweaters, and afghans for my family. I've tried and tried to master the Continental method, but it feels cumbersome, makes my fingers and hands ache and generally just frustrates me to no end. I'm beginning to think that maybe some people's hands, finger shapes and strength allow them to master this method more easily than others. My rendition of the throwing type of knitting causes me to rest my right needle on my leg in order to keep control. Some how this all works for me and I appear to be able to deliver a suitable product. However, I am embarrassed by this performance and will not take a class or knit in public for fear of odd looks from a teacher or on-looker. I guess what I'm looking for here is an opinion or a reassurance that I may continue learning to knit the various stitches in my unorthodox style without seriously hampering my mastery of the art of knitting.
