New to the site
Hi, my screen name is Marymac. I came across this site while desperately looking for help with a pattern. I started knitting again almost one year ago and I am becoming the blanket queen! I am ready to move on to other things (but I do love my blankets) and this site looks like a great place to be. I'm enjoying my knitting again. I love the rhythm of it - until I make a really really bad mistake and have to rip back or, worse, start over. That was what happened to me tonight---sigh. M

Not a young as some of you - please bear with me - I will learn and get better
Go to the main forum page, and look for the "How To Questions" section in the list on that page. Click that section, then click "New Thread" to start a new discussion about your question.

new to the forum
Hi. My name is Kathie, and I'm fairly new to knitting. My daughter wanted to learn so I went with her for lessons. I'm working on an n afghan that has individual squares so that I can learn new stitches and not get bored by doing the same thing. A co-worker of mine is also doing it so we try to help each other out. I am having trouble with the website videos. They don't seem to close when I "x" out, and then I hear the previous video under the new one I'm trying to listen to. I would love to see more "how to fix mistake" videos. Thanks for all the help your videos have already given me. I love this site and have told my knitting buddies about it.

This is actually 2 firsts for me. Brand new knitter and first time chat room user, so Hello to everyone and please bear with me. I found this website while looking for an answer to seaming a ribbed and St st cap, my first project. The video for the mattress seam was The Best and the more I browsed the site, the friendlier it seemed!
Now the problem - I cannot find anywhere on how to seam a k2p2 rib seam so that the rib on the right side is not interrupted. Help!

Hello All,
So glad to have found you. I live in a rather small city in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where the winters are looooong, and cold. So there is plenty of time to knit. I also am a avid reader, the my time between the two is sometimes quite a competition. If only I could find a way to read and knit at the same time. Ha.

Anyhow, I am trying to learn to knit socks. I have raveled [my grandmother's word] out the heel so many times, that I am worried that the yarn is going to be worn out before the sock is finished.

I am very glad to be a part of this web site.

Best to all, keep warm,
phyllis

Hello Y'all
I am a beginning knitter, so new, I really can't call myself a knitter. I am using the online videos to teach myself. First lesson, long-tail cast on is the easiest method I have seen. I have tried a couple of times before to learn to knit, but it seemed really difficult by the means other had used to teach me. I finally gave up and stayed with crochet. I like the look of knit much better than crochet and decided to give it a try again.

Thanks for the great site!

Hello BetsyAnn;
I am also a fist time forum user. How do you start a new thread?
