Hi Welcome to the Forum! Many of us here use the interchangable circular sets. Knitpicks is a big favorite as well as Denise. These needles are nice because you will have the right needle for most projects. Here is a nice thread with more details.

Just browsing the site and checking the chats
I'm just checking the chat topics and saying hello! I haven't started knitting today but will probably pickup one of the two projects.

Thanks for welcoming me! This site is wonderful. I'm a long time knitter happily returning after too long and not an expert by any means. The videos are so great for things I've forgotten.

I'm knitting several baby gifts and using a Debbie Bliss pattern for a sweater that calls for the back to be knitted to a given length and then sleeves to be shaped by casting on 6 stitches at the beginning of the next 6 rows, then 18 stitches at the beginning of the following 2 rows. Could someone please tell me how to go about doing the cast on?

Also, the pattern calls for Cashmerino Aran and I'm using Cashmerino Chunky. Will that cause a problem?

Thanks for your help!

Hi!

I'm a new knitter also. I learned how to knit back when I was in Grade 4 and thought I had forgot! I am expecting my first baby and thought that I wanted to knit my babys first blanket.

I looked up sooo many videos on the net until i found your website and found them so useful. I only knew how to cast on stitches and do a garter stitch. Now, I'm still trying to figure out these confusing patterns! lol ...
But anyways, i guess im not the only beginner here and dont mind for any silly questions i might have!

Nice seeing you all here!!

bye!

Asma
