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 =)
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!
Hello everyone!! I'm a new member. I started knitting about a year ago. I must admit, yesterday was the first project I finished. I have found many of the posts here very useful and have given me many ideas. Thank you for this site!!!
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!!!!
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.
