Hi to everyone.

My name is Kim and I had started to teach myself to knit before I got pregnant with my twins. My mom crocheted when I was a kid, and she always promised she would make the twins blankets. She never did, and I've decided to right the wrong (it's a really long story).

So because I had gotten rid of all my stuff, I went out yesterday and bought two skeins for practicing, a size 8 circular needle set, and a gauge ruler and some markers. Hopefully that's all I need just to get my feet under me again. Then I'll start working on a basic blanket for the twins that doesn't require too many advanced skills. Hope I can find some help here!

Thanks,
Kim

Hi, I'm Leania (its the name I use to sign all my arts and crafts things). I'm somewhat new to knitting, I was taught by my trainer for the job I used to work at and have since continued. Sadly I get distracted and frustrated easily and either completly undo the project I was working on, or it sits unfinished for a long while. I'm still working on my blanket that I'm crocheting for a king sized bed. I have enough yarn, just get distracted easily. I'm almost done with a scarf I'm currently on, and I finished a small..."thing" when I was learning double pointed needles. Looks like a small open bag with no pull-strings or a way to close it. I'm working on a more advanced project and I'll be posting in the help section next. I haven't seen the topic covered yet.

I'm a 27 year old mommy of a hyper-active 2 year old boy who hates it when mommy is doing something other than sitting still. Never fails, he's in his room playing, I pull out my knitting, he comes running in. :D No wonder I can't finish anything, LOL!

Introduction
Good Afternoon,
I am an experienced knitter, living in sunny Worthing in the UK.
I have always avoided knitting patterns with different colours as I don't know how to weave the different colours on the wrong side of fabric. I have tried various things and have undone all my work again as it doesn't look smooth. Can anyone help?

I'm no expert, but I usually weave in the ends at the section that was knit with each specific color. That way, the yarn doesn't show through to the other side. You can see a tutorial for weaving in ends here:

Crocheter gone Knitting
Hello!
I haven't picked up knitting needles since I was a child, so I am rather new again. I am a crocheter and am ready to transition to knitting. For the last 6 weeks, I have been enrolled in classes and doing well. I am so excited about this new adventure and really want to understand and own it! I just pray I have the time to keep up with it. I am hoping to meet new friends and gain knowledge from this forum. I have enjoyed reading comments on the threads and already feel welcome to this site! I'm excited to be knitting again!
Happy knitting!
Janet

Newbie here
I tripped onto this site looking for a pattern. Haven't found the pattern yet but love the site! My nick name is Suebee. I have had it for a few decades! I have been knitting for around 6 or so years. I love it!
I am going to go wander around the site to find the pattern I want...I hope.

Hi Everyone
Just made the Heart Double Knit Hot Pad in yellow and white. It is so cool.

I took photos of it, but don't know how to upload them. They ask for a URL and they are not on a website. They were uploaded from my camera to my computer. Can anyone tell me how to show this adorable hot pad.

I love this website. It's the best!!!
