Introducing Myself
Awesome website! I began knitting again a year ago (first learned in Girl Scouts; am now 53). There are so many neat patterns I didn't feel comfortable tackling till I happened on this website. This is by far the best! The books I've purchased are good but this site is where I'll spend most of my time! Yea!!!!! Thank you so much.

Hi ucmonikaknit! You just introduced yourself in the right place.

What kind of blog are you referring to? We have discussion threads here in the forum under "Blogs" on the main page. Those are free, and you can make your own thread there to talk about yourself and your knitting. But, most people prefer to just post their discussions in "General Knitting" or "Whatcha Knitting".

If you are referring to an offsite blog, where you have your own webpage for your personal stuff, you'll find several free blogsites available on the internet.
I use Blogger (www.blogger.com)

Hi terrivasofsky! I'll copy your question to the "How To" section of the forum, so you'll get some answers there.

Just popping in to say hello and give a round of applause for this fantastic website. So incredibly useful to be able to see such clear videos showing all the knitting basics and so much more.

I'm a complete beginner - I just bought yarn and needles two days ago. My Nan was a superb, self-taught knitter but I was silly enough to not really be interested when she taught me stuff as a child. I've already learnt to cast on, knit, purl and make a start with the basic patterns, although there have been a lot of restarts, due to ribbing suddenly becoming back to front and holes appearing! oops. I'm sure I'll get there eventually, once I learn to count to two and keep track!

I'm in the UK by the way - anyone else around these parts?

Nic

This looks like a good site to get help with knitting. Hello everyone. I have been knitting for about three years. I have mostly been knitting scarves, hats, and dishcloths. I am a visual learner and sometimes have a hard time just reading a pattern.

Hi everyone,
I stumbled upon your site this morning looking for a little info, thought I'd register. This is awsome!!!!! I started my own sewing company last year. I am making a few winter coats right now and needed to buy some knitted cuffs. Well, the ones I found were so expensive, (orderd them anyway) I just so happened to go upstairs in my old sewing room closet looking for a piece of material I needed, and found my knitting bag!!! As a thought came to my mind, (why couldn't I knit my own cuffs???) So last week I sat down with my needles that were twenty years old, to practice. Well needless to say my sweater will be finished today. Only my last cuff is left!!! But boy oh boy what a person can forget in 20 years. Where was this internet thing when I was in the sixth grade learning to knit? How lucky we are now, huh? My problem is trying to figure out what things mean on the patterns. I guess I am getting old or just can't remember how to read them. But what I want to say is, it will be nice to just ask you all if I have a question, even if to you it may sound so simple. So thanks for being here. Terry

Hello....and a question
I am tired of knitting scarves and afghans and would
like to get more into knitting something just a little bit
harder....only a little bit harder.

I need to learn how to M1L and M1R.

If this is the wrong area in which to ask, please direct me
to the correct area.

I am very happy to have found this group.

thank you
