Hi. I just recently took up knitting after 10 years of not doing anything (my aunt tried in vain to show me how), and I am glad I found the site. The instructional videos are very helpful.

Hello, I'm new, but need help
Hello, everyone!

I'm Jennifer. I just joined the forum, but I have an immediate question. I am working on a scarf project with the red knifty knitter loom. It is a simple tube scarf and I thought that since I am going to be sewing up the ends of the scarf, Why not just put two slits in it to make the ends of the scarf pockets. This is easier said than done. I looked on line for patterns, but found none for the loom. I could use some advice on how to do this on a loom.

New to the Group
Hi,
I'm so excited to get to be a part of your group. I'm so looking forward to talking to you all and hearing your great experiences and advise. I've been knitting about 10 years and, well, it's may favorite hobby outside of babysitting my 3 Grandsons.
Lately I've been fascinated with entrelac and have made a headband and hat out of Noro yarn. When I began I thought I was so out of my league even attempting entrelac but found that it was really no big deal and so fun and addicting. There is a great webpage I'd be glad to pass on if anyone is interested.
Again, thanks for having me and I'm looking forward to talking to you soon.

A hearty THANK YOU to Knit Picks
I was under the wire today trying to finish a hat to send to a daughter in her Christmas package. I couldn't remember how to finish off the seam so that it would be invisible (Mattress seam). I got on your website and watched a video explaining how to do it. It was very simple and the exact thing I was looking for. Now I am done and the package can go out. Thank you so much for being here and for letting me be part of your group of friends.

Thanks for the sites, Shandeh! I've just done hats on the loom and am going to try some more things on it soon. I didn't have all of these sites, so I'll check them out.

You ROCK, Lady! You even know things about things you don't do!.......

Welcome. And do share...you'll find that we all LOVE pictures of other people's FOs (finished objects) and new websites!
