Hi! I'm new here. I've been crochetting for nearly 15 years and I want to learn how to knit. I would love to be able to make knitted sweaters, socks, scarves, etc. I tried to learn how to knit a few years ago (from books) but my stitches were so tight I broke the yarn! So I'm hoping that the videos will be a wonderful learning tool as I personally don't know anyone that knits.

Hi everyone! I'm a self-confessed nerd from Sydney about to complete his final year of highschool (Hahaha...I sound like a troll). I've been knitting for about 4 years now, mostly for charity and scarves for family and friends when I'm on school holidays.

This forum looks soo inviting- its going to be fun on here =)

Doing my best!
Hi all! Newbie here. I'm pretty much still a beginner, with a couple of finished scarves under my belt. I'm currently working on a baby cardigan, but some of it scares me! The videos here really have helped me, especially with figuring out how to cast on and off!

Hi there!

I've been knitting for about a year now, and still on the same project! To my defense, it's a blanket the size of a king bed! Lol... ambitious i know!

I'm a homemaker here in sunny Los Angeles, and I'm looking forward to meeting and making new friends! Maybe even start a knitting group!

By way of intro:
Wife of 35 years, mother of 2 grown boys, teacher of 30+ years and am now on the verge of retiring. After years of educating others and completing my post-grade degree, I've taken up knitting again. I came across this site, looking for an easy sock pattern.
Foolishly, I got the itch to make my own socks after reading some sites and seeing what others have done. Never having made socks before, I thought I could handle the task and bought some yarn (no, that's not right - a lot of yarn ) through KnitPicks; joined a monthly sock club - BIG MISTAKE!
While I have been knitting on/off for over 30 years, I never used a chart. I have no clue what I'm doing. I got as far as turning the heel on a toe-up sock and now need help desperately. Good exercise for lace work as the holes I've created are pretty consistent! HELP!!!!

New, but not new
Hi All,

I have been here at the site for quite sometime. Love to knit! It sort of keeps me sane. My DH says that the cure for a bad day is yarn therapy--he takes me to the yarn store. Hope to get to know some of you soon.

Live Life!
