Hello!
Hello all!
My name is Andie, and I am an American living in Tel Aviv Israel.
I am soooo glad to find this site.
I am not fluent in Hebrew so it is difficult for me to find a knitting group, patterns or help with my knitting disasters in English.

My current knitting goal is to actually finish a project, my kntting basket of unfinished work is almost full!

Take care and I hope to meet some of you soon!

Hi,

My name is Stephanie and i'm a new knitter. I've been knitting (mainly scarfs because everyone saw mine and wanted one) for a little over a year. (took me many years to find someone to teach me. I learn best by watching) I just started some handwarmers on DPNs. The vids and the forum helped a lot when i was getting started with that project. I love how helpful and NICE everyone is here.

Hi Chris! Which poncho are you referring to? There are LOTS of poncho patterns for children. You'll find some of them here:

Hi!
Hi! Mine name is Amanda and I just started trying to knit (again!) My mom has tried several times to teach me, and I would knit a dish cloth or half a scarf and then leave it for a few years, but never really learned to finish anything. Until NOW!! I started reading the Knitting Mysteries by Maggie Sefton and I wanted to give it another try. Once I picked up my needles this time, I got addicted!! In the last 3 weeks I have made 4 scarves for Christmas and I made myself a shawl. It was a free pattern from lionbrand.com - the easy triangular shawl. I just finished my shawl last night and learned a VERY valuable lesson concerning dye lots!! I didn't know to check that when I bought the yarn, but I won't ever forget it!! I don't know how to post pics but you can see a definite line in my shawl. Grrr!

Anyway, I guess that is a bit more than a basic introduction!! Thanks for reading!
Amanda

Hello everyone!
I've been crocheting since about 2003 but I only just learned to knit a couple of weeks ago. I'd been trying and trying to learn knitting for years and stumbled onto this site's videos and a couple on YouTube and suddenly I learned to knit and purl. I crochet but a knitted fabric was so different and pretty so I had to learn. Just think, now I will have UFOs in both knitting and crochet. Looking forward to learning everything I can. I'm pretty slow at knitting but practice will make me a little faster. My first project is a scarf and I'm squeezing it in between my many crochet projects. I don't care if it takes months to complete, I just want to be able to say I did it!

Hi Amy,
Just joined. I'm a knitwear designer, writer, teacher and enjoy all sorts of textiles. Just thought it would be interesting to join a group and see what everyone is knitting/wants to knit etc...

my introduction
Hello all,
I am Christine from Indiana. I have been needle knitting for a few months now, and I also loom knit. Loom knitting is actually easier than needle knitting for me right now....lol.
I am working on a shawl for myself right now, using Caron Simply Soft yarn in 5 different colors, and is turning out awesome. I am only doing the knit instead of purls right now cause they are easiest.
Of course, I am now wanting to tackle DPN's, which i have a sz 0 and sz 1 harmony wood(6 needles) from knitpicks, along with 2 of their circulars. I love these needles, and the price is right.
I am a member of a site called ravelry(love this site) and I am looking for the easiest sock pattern that is made without heels(includes a spiraling effect to fit perfect). I am wanting to make sock for myself 1st til I get them perfected, to be able to make socks for everyone else.
Baking and cooking are 2 of my other fav hobbies. but that is for another time. Thank you so much for allowing me to join. I know I am in one of the right places if I need help(need a lot of that too...lol)
Christine
