This is a great site! I tried (half-heartedly) many years ago to learn how to knit and it didn't take long for me to give up. It is now 20 years later and my youngest has just left home for college. I have read every book in the house and finished putting up the vegetables from the garden... so here I am again. I picked up some yarn and some knitting needles... when I looked at the pattern, it looked like a foreign language. With the help of the videos on this site I have completed a "dish rag" with many flaws over the last few days.... not the videos fault... the parts that are right are because of this site. I figured I would start small and if I was going to use it as a dish rag.... no one is going to care about the flaws anyway. I hope to get better. I have two daughters in two different colleges and I would like to make them each a scarf made with their school colors before Christmas. I may be on the forums quite a bit trying to decipher the patterns over the next few months.

Hello Everyone!
I am also an addicted knitter and crocheter. I am wondering if anyone from Windsor, Ontario, Canada is also addicted to this craft. If so, please reply so we can chit chat.

Thanks

Thanks,...this particular computer medium of posting, etc., is sooooooooo new to me, that I am a bit confused about what to do, where to go and so forth.

The reason I need to get envolved with other knitters is: I picked up my needles again after about 40 years of non-knitting. Some of the new patterns look pretty easy BUT some of the abbreviations are very unfamiliar to me. Where do I go to get clear info on what an abbreviation means and how to do what the pattern abbreviation is telling me to do (if there is no clarifiction or illustration with the pattern). I only have a few minutes at work on my lunch hour to ask or answer questions.

Hello!
Hello everybody!

I have been an industious sock-knitter since last fall, and have often used this site to watch the videos on different techniques. They are the best.

I didn't join this forum though before today.
My latest sock-project is the Horcrux

more socks on my blog
