Hello all! I've been referring to the videos and whatnot on this website for awhile, but decided that I should join the community!
My mom taught me the basics of knitting when I was a teen, and I've been teaching myself stuff ever since. I should learn a lot
I made my first piece of clothing this winter (a sleeveless sweater, I'll put it in the FO thread soon), not counting scarves, and a couple of toques. My first scarf was *huge.* I like 'em big so I can wrap them around my neck, over my head and around my neck again. I cast on enough stitches for a 12" wide sweater and finally stopped when it was 60" long - perfect.
Okay, maybe a little too long...
For the past few months, I've been having friends who knit (or crochet) over once a week, and we're all really enjoying that! We call it the Itty Bitty Knitty Club.
I'm currently working on a Shipwreck shawl (a friend and I are doing it together) and it's going pretty well... might post a question about it later.
Take care everybody, and nice to meet you!
