I've visited this site many times after references from the Kitter's Review Forum. Have found the videos to be most helpful. I'm just returning to knitting after many years of doing other forms of needlework. So much has change, yarns, techniques and the internet helplines. I live outside of Phoenix AZ and look forward to being a new member of your group. I'm sure I'll learn many things.
Hello everyone! This is my very first post, so I hope I'm doing this correctly. I'm so happy and excited to be a part of KH.
I have been visiting the website since I first started knitting in spring 2005. This website has been such a help to me, especially late at night when my LYS is closed. I finally decided to join when I saw the Charity Knitting forum. KH is such a wonderful group of people!
Amy, I can't thank you enough for starting this wonderful website. Knitting has become an important part of my life, and this website has become an important part of my knitting.

Just wanted to say hello and thanks, my grandma taught to knit years ago but i forgot LOL, this site helped me get back into it
and allowed me to pick up so cool tips and ideas, thanks alot keep up the awsome work
I am making my first official garment (not a scarf or hat!) and have a question about binding off to shape the neckline/armholes. (I hope this isn't a "Duh!" question--I had to get outside help the first time I made I-cord ) After I bind off the required number of stitches. I am left with one stitch on my right needle. What am I supposed to do with that lone stitch? This is the only thing holding me back at this time. I just need some help.
As a self-taught knitter, this website has been SOOOOOOOOO helpful. Thanks!
Jen Welcome to the Forum. Sorry about the delay in getting to your question. I'm going to copy your post to the Pattern Help forum. Have a look sometime today for an answer.
I am Just learning to knit , finished my sample square and on to my first scarf.I'm a homebody with 3 dogs and a big flower garden .
Love all needle work , I've done embroidery and crochet for ma
ny years,but for some reason I've always been afraid of knitting maybe it's because my friend mades the most compicated ski sweaters . Very intimidating.
My nephew just had a new baby and I would like to make a little hat someware I saw a tomato hat does anyone know were I could find that pattern if it's not to hard for a rookie.
I am not new, but after a good few days of searching and not a bit of luck I've decided to re-register. Sorry Mods! I don't want to swell the numbers needlessly but I also just was able to come and play again as you all are so irresistible!
I am Roberta/Birdy, formerly of the Stratford area. We recently bought our first house. It is a whole 5 minutes from my hubby's work instead of the 1 hour 15 minutes of our old house.
So my sewing machine has been doing a lot of work right now. While I'd like to knit curtains I've faced the fact that I would be long bored with that project!
I'm still Homeschooling the darling children, the boy and the girl.
We've only got 2 cats now, the pet cow came along in another form (sorry vegetarians, but hubby is not!), the dog found a new home and the chickens are no longer our responsibility. We miss our doggie dearly, but felt that since he was 7 years a farm/country dog he would have a happier life with a retired couple that offered to adopt him than in our inch of yard we now own.
We moved in June 2nd and I unpacked the last box this past Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday last week saw me sewing the curtains. And every single other mending job my kidlets decided I simply *had* to do right then and there.
So that is about it. I've found the time (err, insisted upon finding the time) to pass a few round on the socks. I also decided to muddy the water and started a filigree crochet project because my Great Aunt gave me her collection of crochet things and I wanted to see if I enjoyed it before I accepted the gift. I do.
That will be enough of an update for now. The Kidlets are demanding another chapter (well, they've up'd it to 4 chapters) of Charlie and the Glass Elevator so I MUST go now!
