I'm just a beginner...
But I've watched my mom knit & crochet for years. I've always wanted to learn but I didn't believe that I had it in me. A good friend of my mine encouraged me to visit your website and try to teach myself. So, here I am! Please be patient with me, I'm sure to ask a lot of silly questions...if I don't poke my eye out with the needles first

I just found out about this site from a knitting instructor at my local yarn shop. It seems like a neat place! I've been knitting and crocheting for years and I am obssessed with it! Glad to be among others who feel the same

Hello
Hi,
I've been knitting for a long time, but this is the first forum I've joined. I need help with a project. I'm trying to knit a giant fair isle mitten to be used as a Christmas stocking. I can't seem to get the proportions right. Anyone have a pattern like this or any advice on how to go about it?

Hi everyone, my name is Helen I have recently revived my interest in knitting and crocheting because of a knee injury. I am so glad I learned how to do this years ago when it seemed so easy otherwise my old brain cells would have had a rough time.
I have been surfing around finding new patterns and practicing and found your forum and just love it. there is so much to read and learn here.
Thanks for having me

Hi, Welcome the Forum. I'm going to copy your question to the How to Questions Forum. Have a look there for some answers to your question. I'll title it Proportion Problem with Christmas Stocking.

Welcome to the Forum Most times there is a link to the pattern in the first post for the knit a long if its a free pattern. If its not a free pattern there is usually information there that will tell you how to get it. There are also free patterns here in their own separate section. So hop right in. There are plenty of people here to help you.
