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!
