I thought I already sent in a new member post, but I can't find myself (my member name is diehlsb)! Anyway, I am retired, lucky enough to live full time in my motorhome (with my husband!) and travel all summer.
I learned to knit as a small child; every Fall I need the feel of yarn and needles in my hand. I've always enjoyed learning new techniques and patterns, and this web site is wonderful! As we travel, I knit -- it's easier than just sitting there if we are traveling along freeways. Of course, if there is great scenery, that gets my attention.
The videos have been a tremendous help. As a left-handed person, I've taught myself the continental method by switching hands: yarn held in the right hand, working needle on the left. I'm not sure if I'm doing it right, but the result is really good, and it's faster.
Thanks again for the great site.
