If you mean meet up in person--there's a thread you might want to post in--Knitters Knear You. You can post what area you are in and see if you can contact someone in your area.

You can also learn a lot from the people here. Everyone's really friendly and eager to help.

Hello all. I learned how to knit a few years ago, but still consider myself a beginner. I have only done a few easy projects. I want to get back into and get more advanced. I'm excited about this website because of the wealth of information!

Hello there :o)
Hello,

I'm English and I live in Spain. A friend taught me how to crochet and I've kind of taught myself how to knit watching videos and following simple patterns. I've made lots of scarves (crochet) and I'm just finishing my first hat (knitting) ... all I have to do is close it ... which is causing me a few problems but I'm determined to do it.

Looking forward to chatting and hopefully some day even being able to help out ... will have to keep learning to get better until then though.

Hi group,

I am an American living in mid America, and envying those of you who are living abroad. Only region in the U.S. I have not lived is the NorthEast. I love everything to do with fibers, thread, and fabric. And am old enough to have tried almost all of them. I never did any "sprang" however - the book I had that showed it, and that I wanted to use to make a hammock was loaned out and never returned.

I used to write professionally on needlework - and as consequence, received many freebies from needlework publishers. My library was better than the best public library I had ever seen - but alas, was donated to a library in Colorado when I moved from there to here. I kept the most special books, of course. I still tell my kids (4 of them) that if I die DO NOT donate my books (that I have left) to "Goodwill" - but to sell them online. They are worth a lot. But not enough for me to part with them.

New to Knitting!
Hi
I'm new to knitting. My grandmother taught me years ago but recently decided to try it again. Actually finding it fun!
Question:
When the instructions say: "knit/purl two rows even"
What does that mean????

Hello---I am Rebecca in Utah and I hope someone can help me. I was watching Knitty Gritty on tv a while back and thy demonstrated a good way to bind off. I wrote this down, but now I can't find the instructions. It wasn't in the Title of the show, but rather just a handy tip. I would really like to try this and hope that someone out there can help me. Thanks

Newbie
Hi, I'm Goldiesmom from Ontario, Canada. I am an enthusiastic, but talent challenged knitter who wants to do things that are way over my abilities LOL. I always have questions and look forward to participating in the forums. Right now I am knitting a baby blanket for my newborn great nephew and I have worked through some of the new stitches in the pattern. In a few days I will be at the hard part, and I'm sure hoping people will come to my aid. Look forward to talking to you all soon. Goldie

Hello! When a pattern tells you to knit, purl or work in a pattern "even", it just means that you don't do any increasing or decreasing over those rows.
