How many stitches do you work in each row? Is it possible that the cable could be P2, k4, p2? (that's your 8 stitches), but I need to know more.

Wow. I've been to this site before but I never realized there was a forum attached to it. I guess I should pay more attention. I've been knitting for about 4 years and I'm kind of starting to crochet a little bit (Knitting is still my preference, though). I'm really looking forward to meeting other knitters and getting some much needed help at times.

Just wanted to introduce myself - lurked here on occasion and decided to join.

I've been knitting for about 4 years - I learned as a little girl (like so many of us!) but didn't stick with it. I picked it back up at 22 years old and never looked back!

My favorite things to knit are socks, glittens, and any kind of toddler/baby items. I'm still coming to terms with the fact that I don't love knitting sweaters for myself.

Anyway, hello to everyone and looking forward to meeting you!

Just found this site. Wow!
I am from Toronto, ON and have been knitting since the age of 10. So after (lol) years of knitting, one would think I know what I am doing. Nope. Still making mistakes, actually I think I was a lot better as a young one.

Perhaps I will find out via this site, what I have been doing wrong that just makes my projects turn out kinda sloppy.

Right now however I am looking for a hat pattern worked on circular needles.

I am off to explore..... I look forward to meeting u and gaining some useful tips in the near future.
Take care

Hi, my name is Marjorie. That ID was taken so I am using my nickname, Marj.

I've been lurking here for a year now but have finally decided to join. I and a single woman and will be 47 in a couple of weeks. I discoverd this site September of last year when I decided to try knitting again.

My older sister had taught me to knit & crochet when I was around 15 but I never got the hang of casting on so I stuck to crocheting. I've been crocheting ever since.

I found this site while looking for casting on videos since I just wasn't getting the hang of the instructions for the long-tail cast-on from books. I've been lurking here ever since.

This sitte has helped me with my knitting a whole lot. I love the videos. Thanks Amy.

I could go on and on but I won't. for now.

Hello, my name is Mia, I am from Kansas but currently stationed in Japan with my husband and two sons. I am sooo glad to have found your website, I have been interested in trying knitting for a long time. I really don't know where to start, but there is lots of information here on the website. Any help would still be appreciated though.

Hello Everyone:

I am a new to knitting and looking for help to move beyond scarves and simple
caps. I have more now than I know what to do with. I do not have the courage to give them as gifts yet because most look like they were purchased from the dollar store.

I live in Baton Rouge and have not found a knitting group to join but I am looking. I look forward to learning from all the members of this forum and hopefully one day be able to share with someone who is in the novice position that I am today.

Thanks for being here.

Dear all,

I am a new knitter and really loving it - find it creative, therapeutic, maddening at times, and just plain fun!

My biggest issue is still reading and deciphering patterns. Along those lines, I have two burning questions. On a current project, the pattern says to "purl into the back of the stitch" - I tried this and the result was odd looking so I think I may have done it wrong. Can someone tell me how to purl into the back of a stitch?

Second, on a buttonhole area, the pattern said to cast off three stitches (to form the buttonhole area). I did this with no problem BUT then the next row said to "cast on" three stitches over the prior "hole" area. I have NEVER cast on in mid work - only at the beginning of a knitted piece. How do you do this in the middle of a work? Do you simply make a slip knot and place it on the needle in your right hand?

Thanks for any help with this fellow knitters.

Hello to all!

I am excited to be learning to knit and crochet. I have been going at it for about a month now and seem to be getting it. I am almost finished with a very simple scarf. I came looking for help and I have found it here. Just a little about me (in case anyone reads this ) I am a 31 year old mother of two young children. I live in TN and enjoy many kinds of crafting (I am seriously wondering what in the world I am doing getting into another one!)

Well that is about me. Looking forward to being involved.
