Hi everyone! My name is Erica and I work at a law firm (where I am now--oops!!) in downtown Washington, DC and live in Virginia.
My maternal grandmother who lives in Pennsylvania taught me to crochet when I was younger, but I have recently (in the last 10 days or so) been trying to learn how to knit. Every time I would see a pattern for something I really loved, it seemed like it was always a knit pattern instead of for crochet. It might be a little lame, but I want to learn to make really awesome scarves.
I looked around online and then signed up for the forum because I feel like I am having some trouble already, dispite buying a book (probably an unnecessary expenditure now that I know how many free resources are out there) and feeling fairly confident initially.
This forum is exactly the same as another one I used to participate in (must be the vB code), so if anyone wants to know more, just email me or PM me or whatever to get in touch, because I'm not sure what else there is to tell right now.
