Hiya! I've been knitting about a year and have been using this site extensively to help me figure out what's what. I love the videos! They're a real life saver! Thanks for taking the time to build this place!

Yeah, I have tried the video. I just can't seem to get any farther than casting on. I'm probably just making a silly mistake. The videos were really helpful though to teach me how to hold the needles, the yarn, and how to cast on.

Hi! I'm glad to find a helpfull community. I'm just starting to knit and your tips are great. The videos are an amazing way of motivation to learn, because I can't always understand the explanation of a pattern just reading. Keep the good work! And thanks for been there.

I am new too. From Seattle area (Eastside)
Well, I am a knitter from the Eastside 'burbs in the Seattle area. I love to work on small items such as baby things, socks, dishrags etc because I love instant gratification! In the past few years we have been blessed with the arrival of several nieces, and great nieces and nephews, so I have been busy knitting small things. I love it!

I have been knitting since I was 6. My mother's mom taught me and after she passed when I was 7, my dad's mom kept me going. I am im my 50's now, so I'm a long timer. I can also crochet, sew, quilt, scrapbook, and hand-smock. Another passion is photography.

I am married and we have 3 kids and one child-in-law. Next year we add to the family with another one of the kids getting married. I still have one teen in HS.

Guess that sums it up for now. I'll check out the other boards to see what is up today.

In March, 2007 I had to undergo a bunionectomy. I thought to myself, what am I going to do while I'm recuperating? I'm a very busy woman. I work a full-time and part-time job and have a family. I knew that sitting around after surgery would drive me nuts. It was then that I thought of knitting and found your web site. Your videos are wonderful and in no time I was knitting dishcloths. I am now hooked on knitting. I took some classes and joined a local knitting group. I still look for only easy and beginning patterns but some day would like to knit like the pros in my knitting group. Your web site has helped me a lot. Thanks for taking the time to develop it.

Hello, I'm new here...
I just discovered this forum!! I've been looking for an active forum on knitting and I can't believe I found one....I am so happy!!
The website is fantastic and a wonderful way to learn with videos. What a great idea!!

I've been knitting and crocheting for a little over 30 years now and find that there's always something new to learn. I hope to be able to join in the conversations and perhaps even add something useful here and there.

Thank you for a wonderful connection!!

Hello,
Thank you! I'm new to knitting, and I'm enjoying it immensely. I have several small projects going on right now. I took a class this past June and learned the basics including some shaping. My instructor recommended this site for a reference point. So here I am!
