Just wanted to drop by and introduce myself. I am a long time crocheter and new to knitting. I really loved the videos! It's almost like having a teacher.

Thanks!

THanks for the videos! I have a book that has "how to knit cables" but I could never visualize any of it. I a a beginning knitter and am getting tired of knitting plain scarves and hats....I am ready for cables.
Could you possibly add in a videodthe future a how-to do a 'yarn over'? I think a yarn over is where either a stitch is added or a hole is made, I can't figure it out. Any advice?

Hi Alli! Wool would be nice and warm. Lion Brand Wool or Patons Wool are both inexpensive, and are available at craft stores like Michaels, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby, or JoAnn's.

Amy has already made a video on yarn-overs. It's in the "increases" section.

Hello Everyone!

I am brand new to this site. I am an experienced knitter, crocheter. Although I haven't knitted or crocheted in a few years, I haven't forgotten how to. I've just been busy sewing. My reason for joining is because I am trying to find out where in the U.S. I can purchase Phentex Yarn ......to make the infamous slippers. My sister is actually the one looking. We know that it can be purchased in Canada, since I am Canadian....but can it be bought in the U.S? Anyone who can help me would be greatly appreciated.

Hi! My name is Helen, a new member. I am retired from our local printing/newspaper company, my husband is retired from a forging factory. We have two children, and three grandchildren, will have three step-grandchildren very soon.
I have been knitting since high school, and I also crochet, loving every minute and each project I finish. I teach two small knitting classes each week. Started the prayer shawl ministry in our church.
I am always looking for new things to work on. I belong to the Monthly Dishcloth Group.
I know I will enjoy reading all the threads and learning new knitting techniques.

Hi, my name is Gina, and I just joined up here.

I'm a very basic knitter who has decided to branch out and learn how to make useful things other than dishcloths and scarves As such, I just purchased four Elizabeth Zimmermann books and two Mary Thomas books. I taught myself to use circular needles this past week, so I splurged and bought myself Knit Picks Harmony wooden circ. interchangeable needle set. I splurged because tomorrow is my 40th b-day, and I needed a little something to get me out of the doldrums.

I'm a proud Army wife, and my daughter is serving in the Coast Guard. When I'm not knitting, I edit and proofread legal transcripts in my home office. We're in the process of moving from SW Oklahoma to Spokane, WA. We have a small zoo, consisting of two male pugs and three male cats.

Nice to "meet" everyone!

Introducint ME
Hi. I'm HazelC and I'm a knitaholic.

I thought I knew all I needed to know about knitting until I discovered KH.com! It's opened up a whole new world for me.

I'm in my church's prayer shawl ministry and that just requires the most basic skills. However, when deciding to knit socks from all those odds and ends of yarn I found I needed some help in how to knit a heel flap, turn a heel, finish off a toe by Kitchener stitch. The how-to books describe how but I need someone to show me. Bless Google! (Hmmm. Where's that emoticon I clicked on?) I found KH and keep visiting and viewing videos.
