Hi Im new too. I can knit and purl a blanket but have always wanted to try socks and sweaters. I read Debbie McComber's book A Good Yarn and got a great pattern to knit socks on two circular needles and believe it or not it really worked. okay, the sock came out the size of a Christmas stocking but I was and am really proud of myself. Its not really hard. Nice to meet you Jackiealmon

My name is Missy and I have been knitting for almost a year. I am a full time student and mother to a 2 year old. I knit to relax, but I don't have the time to do it as much as I would like. All of this will change when I graduate college in 3 weeks. I hope to take a few knitting classes at my local yarn store to help me along. I can cast-on, knit, and purl. I used a borrowed book from the library to learn. I have only made a few scarves and many swatches. I have a lot to learn and I am ready to get on with it! This is a great site. The videos have helped me tremendously.

I've been knitting a couple years now, after having learned how as a child some 40 years ago! I find it very relaxing and I enjoy making projects to give away

This website is invaluable whenever I come across something I can't quite remember how to do properly. The videos are excellent, as is the written explanations provided. Hoping this will improve my knitting to the point where I can progress into making actual garments instead of scarves, mittens, slippers & afghans!

Question Sewing Labels into Knitted Items
Hi.. My name is Georgette I have been crocheting for 10 years and Knitting for a year .. I'm obsessed with Knitting and can seem to give anything away that I have made even though when I was knitting it I had someone in mind. So I feel if I put a label in all my items I will feel better about letting them go .. I also take pictures of all my stuff as well.. Please help I ordered labels .. how should I sew them in.. tried by hand horrible outcome. Use a machine or does someone out there have some cool technique. Please advise

Howdy All!

Thanks for the invite. I was wondering if any of you out there know where I could find 100% silk yarn, especially pre-dyed. It is a little hard to find here in Italy. Lots of wool though. Ciao and thanks.

New here! I've already put up a few posts but thought it's only polite to come and say hi

I learnt to knit as a child but never really made anything much more than half finished scarfs/squares/whatever-you-want-to-call-its.... I'm nearly thirty (writing the word doesn't seem half as scary as when you see the numbers...) and been off work sick since August bored so thought knitting would be a good idea... and it was! I have made 10 hats, 3 scarves, 4 neckwarmers (with some very funky buttons I might add!), a pair of mittens, and a pair of slippers. My family are going to be warm this christmas! I've learnt so much in the process of making these, and absolutely love visiting the shops to buy more wool and knitting gadgets! I'm very into vintage style so will be (and currently am) attempting to knit up some very old patterns me and mum dug out that have been passed down the generations. A bit of history! Anyway you don't need to know about my family tree... but I love knitting! So here I am, ready to make new knitting friends and share ideas and tips (probably receiving more than giving to start with!)

Wow that was long. The abridged version:


Looking forward to meeting you all

thank you amy and moderators for keeping up such a great site.

my mother has been getting into sewing and crocheting (at the tender age of 50) and with her enthusiasm and creativity, she has persuaded me to take a sewing class with her in january! meanwhile, i've been knitting (not her favorite -- she thinks crochet is much easier). the increase/decrease sections have been tremendously helpful. i am working on that right now!
