Hello and Thank you!

I have been knitting for a few years and was shown how to purl but quickly got messed up and since my friend and teacher moved out of state I couldnt ask for another demonstration on the purl. I did some searching online and found KnittingHelp and now am in the process of making a baby blanket with both knits and purls. I love that KnittingHelp was able to get me started again.

New to this GREAT site!
I've been knitting for a couple of years now but haven't moved on to anything "intermediate or advanced". I am looking forward to knitting something more than scarfs or blankets. I basically know enough to get myself into a lot of trouble.

I've picked out a new "free" pattern, but after reading it all the way through, I've already got questions. I'll check out a forum and see how it goes. Thanks to all of you in advance and I look forward to making new friends.

Heyo!
I taught myself knitting a few years ago from the videos on this website, and I've recommended it to others who had trouble figuring out knitting stuff (friends, family, strangers on the bus...). Now I'm looking to try some more complex things and I'm excited to have the forums as a resource!

Hi Fiona. Amy has a video on how to do a bobble on this page. Scroll down that page to "Decorative Stitches", and you'll see "Creating Basic Bobbles" as the last entry in that section.

Good luck!

Are you wanting a pullover, or a cardigan? Short sleeves or long sleeves?

Hi. I'm new and I have a problem with my project.
I started crocheting a rug and the stitching became uneven. Now it's warped. What can I do?

Hello from WA state!
Hi there! I am a new knitter! I just recently started up. My grandma gave me some knitting looms to try out. And they are a lot of fun...though I wanted to try out the traditional way of knitting so I could figure what I felt more comfortable with. I like them both. The looms are a lot faster, but I feel more accomplished (if that makes any sense) after I finish work on needles. So with that being said...I am sooo glad I found this group. There is a lot of info to read...and quite honestly I got lost in it...lol. So I am finally here to introduce myself. My name is Nikki. I have a six year old daughter named Hailey. Dh and I have been together about 9 years in Vancouver, WA. We have a funny little dog named Peanut. She is part chihuahuah and Daschund (however you spell it) weiner dog for short. She is a lowrider Chihuahuah! Her ears are to die for! LOL. She makes up for a lot of entertainment around here. Anyhow, thanks for the acceptance into your group and I hope to meet you all soon!
