Hi all,

My name is poppie and I am from South Africa. I am addicted to knitting and I am so glad that I have found this site. Right now I have been introduced to patchwork knitting, which I hope to become very experienced at, but I need help. If there is anyone out there who knows about patchwork knitting I would appreciate communication.

Regards,

POPPIE

Hello everyone,
I am new to this forum and new to knitting- in fact, I have yet to cast my first stitch. I don't know anyone who knows how to knit, but have always wanted to learn.
I just purchased a few supplies to get myself started, but after doing some research, I have found that what I bought may not be the right "starter kit" for a beginner.
I have a nearly two-year-old daughter, and my goal is to learn to knit so I can make her some pretty things.
I'm hoping to get some help from you all here, and hoping that everyone has the patience to answer my novice questions about knitting.

Hello! I'm new, and I'm still something of a beginning knitter.
I know most of the basics, but when I have the time, I love learning new stitches, and making various projects - though, once I'm finished making them, I never use them (thus my Etsy shop! lol)

Hang in there, my friend. Knitting will be relaxing when you get more comfortable with it. It took me FOREVER to fully understand the knit and purl stitches, so I know exactly how you feel. But, once I got it, and it "clicked", I was SO excited! You can do it.

Not at all. There are SEVERAL male knitters in our forum. In fact, one of our forum moderators is a man. You're among friends here.

We cannot share purchased patterns here in the forum, because they are protected by copyright laws. You'll find LOTS of free knitting patterns at www.knittingpatterncentral.com
Good luck!

If you post your question in the "How To" section, you'll probably get lots of help.

Hello from the Bay Area!
I'm an "intro-mediate" knitter. . . note emphasis on the INTRO . Been knitting a whopping 5 months and I'm quite literally hooked! Feeds my OCD and teaches me patience as well. Hoping to use this site to get through some of the rougher patches without bothering my already established knit buddies too terribly much.

BD: 11/24/69.

Looking forward to knit-chatting w/ y'all.

Tawny

Brand new knitter- What do you do
Hello,
I did the continental cast on but have a tail left. How do you go into the first stich from there? I can't find it and have no imagination.
THanks for any help.

Hi everyone,

I'm starting a knitting project with some of my international students attending Cascadia Community College in Bothell, Washington. I am going to encourage them to visit this site and become involved in the forums if they find that they really enjoy knitting! I'm starting out with about 20 students, but I don't really expect more than a handful to stick with it through the quarter-we'll see! This is a great site. I think that they will really benefit from the videos.

Hi Amy and all other knitters,
I'm new to this forum, but not to the site. I love it. I look forward to helping others and hopefully being helped myself. Thanks for this forum. It has helped me out a lot. I've learned so much.
