hi - thought i'd already posted my intro, but got another e-mail that i needed to introduce myself... [new to posting on blogs - sorry!]
Love this site - i learned to knit in Brazil - 18 years - as an exchange student ... a year or so ago a couple of years go while watching "Knit One, Purl Two" on HGTV, my daughter asked me if i knew how to knit & got me to pick up needles again (dug into my bag & pulled yarn & a project that was seriously old - and tried to knit again!) but, in Brazil they knit with the yarn drapped over the neck... much different than Continental or English styles let me tell you... Without the video help here on this site - i'd be a knitting zero today... but the other day i finished my 4th project - in english... via the Continental style - thank you - and mostly in part to this site. Now i'm teaching my daughter
& she loves these videos! she's only 8! my husband chuckles at the two of us "old biddies" as he affectionately calls us on the sofa knitting & chatting! my daugher has several friends that want me to teach them! yikes - thanks to everyone! & knit on!
