I'm Emmilen and have been knitting for about 4 years. I love the videos here--very helpful! My favorite projects to knit are socks, but I've knit at least one of almost everything. I'm not an expert, that's for sure! I look forward to my time here.

Hello, I am new to this site and the knitting community. My friend introduced me to it yesterday & I'm addicted, i'm still 'perfecting' the basics until I feel comfortable to actually make something, but I'm glad I found something to do to spend my summer. -knitmuse

Believe me, you are definitely among friends.
A lot of us have experienced loss in our lives, and our yarn and knitting is EXCELLENT therapy!

You'll probably find lots of help in the "How To" section of the forum. Good luck!

Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself and to say thank you for the many excellent videos and tips. I am not a novice knitter, but am mostly self-taught - and I am learning every day. I have made lots of small baby things, mostly top down, and am in the process of knitting socks right now.

I am a single mother or two grown daughters and have 6 grandchildren, 5 by my eldest daughter, who is a stay-at-home Mom, and 1 by my younger daughter who is a junior high school music teacher. My thrill in life is when I get to babysit, or just spend time with the grandchildren.

I hope to utilize this forum for help many times in the future. Thanks again for letting me join you.

Hi everyone. Obviously I'm new here. And I'm very new in knitting. For the longest time I wanted to learn how to knit. I learned a few basics but never advanced. Since I found this site I learned a lot more tricks. This is a great site and I love it!!

Hello all, Thanks for the great site. And it's nice to join the community. Been knitting for about 1 yr. and taking on a simple two-color baby layette in prep for my first grandchild (blanket, sweater, helmet, booties). Nice change from scarves :-) Started with the blanket of course, it's just a fat scarf! The videos and instructions take the fear out of trying something new.

Ohh Dear -On magic loop, there are two needles. Use one needle for the heel stitches and the other needle for the instep stitiches.

Hello! I was looking at your Suspended-Bind off technique (I am binding off a shawl I made) and the video goes too fast for me & I couldn't get any sound to listen to the instructor, either. I replayed it over & over. I appreciate that this site has excellent tutorials, but I can't seem to see & hear all I need to in order to "get" this bind off.

Can anyone please type out for me, step, by step, how to do this process? Truly appreicate that this site is here and so willing to help and be friendly and wholesome!


#1- Knit two stitches;

#2- ??????

Thanks & Happy Knitting

Introducing myself
Hello everybody

I'm happy to be a part of this Forum - thanks for having me. I've been knitting for more than 50 years, and my great love affair with knitting continues. I can still see myself as a small girl, struggling with a printed pattern, and a very ambitious one it was too. And the wonderful thing about knitting is that I'm still learning.

Good wishes to all.
