Hi there. I am brand new (today) to knittinghelp and found it because I started a knitting project after years of not doing anything. And of course the project I want to make is above my skill level...

It is pretty cool to see a site dedicated to knitting - I always get the "What are you 70 or something?" question from most people.

Can anyone tell me how to knit with multiple threads? I found an afgan pattern book that takes two threads for every pattern in it. I tried it last night and it is obviously not right, but I don't have any idea of how to do it better.

Thanks for any help!

Yeah....those people are losers. They don't have the skill to knit like us, so they try to belittle us to make themselves feel better. KNITTERS ROCK!!!

All you have to do is hold both threads at the same time for every stitch. Knit or Purl both threads throughout. It makes a bulky fabric, and goes very quickly. Good luck!

All day trolling
Hi,
I am new to site and have spent the whole day looking around the site. I really like the friendly atmosphere and the speed with which folks reply!

I am self taught experienced knitter BUT I have never attempted a sock, never participated in a KAL, never knitted for charity and never never thought of cleaning out my stash. All of that I hope to accomplish with the help and support of this like-minded community.

Looking to learn and grow.

I'm new to this forum and new to knitting (TODAY!!). I've got my continental knit down and am working on my purl. I needed something to take my mind off of things in my personal life, and so far, so good! I look forward to getting some great advice from some great knitters.
