I'm Shari
My name is Shari. I live in Suffern, NY with my husband.

My grandmother taught me how to knit and crochet many years ago. I've been crocheting since 1972 and I finally figured out the knitting in 1980 when grandmother was senile and paralyzed in a nursing home.

I am very involved with Project Linus in my area. All my blankets go there, unless mother (who lives across the parking lot from me) takes them from Project Linus and says use them for friends and family.

I have 7 Works In Progress (WIPs) going:

2 Project Linus Blankets
1 Baby Aran for cousin due in June
1 Aran Isles for niece getting married in April
Baby Poncho for stepniece due in June
Masters Level 1 for The Knitting Guild
Christmas Aran for whatever year it gets done for office party raffle.

New To The Group
Hello Everyone,


I am new to the group. I have been crocheting for 37 years or more and now I am trying my hand at teaching myself to knit.

I have knitted very small things like a headband, potholder, etc. I really love the Baby Surprise Jacket.

Any help you guys can give me will be appreciated.

Thanks For Sharing,
Dordie

Hi there, I am teaching myself to knit and have a novice question. I am attempting a baby blanket. It called for 120 cast ons and then knit the next row, etc. My questions is why do I end up with more than 120 knit stitches. I hope someone can help with with this. I am tired of starting over and do not know how to correct.

Hello!
Hey everyone. I'm new here and new to the needles in general. I just picked up my first set and cast on about a week ago! I'm definitely learning and am excited to be doing so. It's been fun. Just thought I would introduce myself and what not.

I'm Krys and I'm a 32 year old computer programmer by trade looking for a new hobby and a way to just relax and pass the time. My wife has been knitting and crocheting off and on for a while and I thought that I might pick it up and give it a go as well. So, here I am.

Anyway, what do you all recommend as good beginners projects?

Hello
Hi I love this site and find it so helpful with the videos. I'm a new knitter. I've made a scarf and a wrap I'm so proud. I'm also new to chatting on the internet. I have a question about the Tee I working on now. Since size matters the pattern states to measure from cast on edge do I take the needles out to get the measurement?

I had been using this webpage for a number of years. How many times I had to search for those handy videos! or learn a new trick in this wonderful world of knitting.
But I never notice until recently this great FORUM.
So is about time I say hello to everyone!
Nice to be here.
A big hug to all,
Dolly
