Hi everyone! Wow... this is a big group, isn't it? Anyway, I'm Liz (29) and my companion (BF) is Ray (47) and we have a daughter, Willow (17 months). I have been knitting for almost 3 years now and I"m just starting to venture out past the really simple stuff. I am just starting my first sweater for my daughter. I am an in-home daycare provider so I can't guarantee that I will be around a whole lot, though I should be able to check the board at least once a day. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you!

Thanks you guys! That hat that she has on is one that I made for one of my daycare babies (she's 4 mos. old). Obviously, it's too small for Willow, but she insisted on trying it on.

Very New Knitter Here...Saying Hello
Hi, I'm Tracy. Just started knitting about 2 weeks ago and fell in . Knitting is very Zen...lotta life lessons in knitting.

I never knitted before, and no one in my family was a knitter that I knew of, but I always wanted to do it having danced ballet so many years and watched girls sit for hours making beautiful things out of string. Learning with books and diagrams proved too confusing. So I took a class at Micheal's 2 Mondays ago, where I learned how to cast on and do the knit stitch....

Currently working on my first 2 garter stitch scarves....one with sz 10 needles (which I started in the class) and one with sz 7....they look QUITE different. I'm still deciding if it's the needle size or the fact that I started one in the class and one after a few days of getting the hang of it.

And still a bit nervous about how messy the edges of things seem to look. Not as bad in the sz 7 project as the sz 10.

Daydreaming about doing an afghan or a shawl soon....

We'll see...a girl can dream.

Anyway...Just wanted to say "hi". Nice to meet you all! Many of you are fantastically talented. I look forward to hanging out here.

Hi Tracy! There's a wealth of information and friendly people here! Maybe you've been told differently in other areas of life, but in needles--size DOES make a difference! :rofling: Sorry! Just a taste of what you have in store if you stick around!

ROFL! Well good then! I can leave my pearls in storage!

And good to know I'm not imagining things....I knew it was something. The smaller project is taking forever, but it looks so NEAT.
