I'm new here and am hoping I am even doing this post correctly. I'm also new to knitting. I know how to knit and purl and can make a winter scarf. That's it, but I really want to learn more and eventually be good enough to knit sweaters and things like that.

Hello knitters
Hi! I have been surfing the site and forum for a few weeks now, and finally decided to join. I have only been knitting for about 2 or 3 months off and on, but I think I am catching on quickly. I started mainly because I wanted to knit a hat for my son to wear home from the hospital, we shall see how well I did when he is born sometime next week! But I've been bit by the knitting bug and can't seem to put my needles down. Not to mention that my Hubby wants a matching hat! I have a lot of questions, and I look forward to meeting other knitters (I haven't met a single one in the town I live in!)

New to group & question
Hi all!
I am Susan from CA, transplanted in TN & loving it! I started knitting about 4 years ago. My mom was a long time knitter and I am trying to catch up.

Question:What does it mean to increase every 4th row twice and then every 6th row (11 times)? Do I increase 1, 2, 3 increase(4), 5, 6, 7 increase (8)? I hope this makes sense! I am working on the sleaves of a sweater.
Thanks & glad to be here.
Susan

Susan, I'm going to copy this question to the "How To" section of the forum. You'll see your answers there.

First time in trying to knit (help!!!)
I am trying to do the basics (casting on and the knit stitch). I watch the videos and I cannot make mine look and do the same thing. How does the working yarn wrap around the right needle counterclockwise and make a loop to go through the left needle. That is where I am having trouble. It's not working for me.

I am putting the working yarn behind both needles. Is that what you are suppose to do?

Hi I'm New!
Hello all you knitters! I've been knitting since June 2005. Was a crocheter before that. But now my crochet hooks are used only to pick up dropped stitches. Looking forward to being part of this group.

Guten Tag!
Hello, I'm Heidikraut - a British woman living in Germany. I'm afraid I rather rudely barged into this excellent site last week and just posted a 'help me' question without introducing myself. However, I got some excellent help and I've now been spending some time finding my way around here.

In knitting terms I'm not terribly technical: I can manage basic patterns, I can do cable, I'm currently doing a lacy stitch (hoping to do some scarves for Christmas presents). I've not done anything like socks, gloves or knitting in more than one colour. Having this excellent resource makes me feel that I may get to be a bit more adventurous.

Looking forward to getting to know a few people.

best
H.
