Hi Bonnie!

I know exactly what you mean! I had been knitting for positively centuries...and didn't realize how much I didn't know either! Now, as I look back, I am embarrassed by some of my knitting! Especially the seams! Oy!

Anyway, we are so happy you are here with our Knitting Family!

Keep us posted about what you're knitting!

Hi, I'm new here! I'm an intermediate crocheter just learning to knit, too. I'm only knitting and purling at this point.

I am working on the Five Rectangle Baby Sweater right now.

Glad this is here, I'm glassjules on ravelry, also.

Hi!
Hello everyone,
I'm new to this web site. I'm an avid knitter but have come to a snag. Can't for the life of me figure out a part on a Debbie Bliss pattern. Where do I post it and maybe someone out there can help me?

Hi Mormor, you can post in the Pattern forum if you have a question about a certain pattern. Be sure to include the name of the pattern, link if there is one, or book it is found in...so they can search around for ya if need be

Return to Knitting
I am returning to the great sport of knitting after many years of absence, and this site and forum looks just chock-full of great knowledge. The last time I picked up the knitting needles, there was no such thing as "The Internets", so I'm thrilled to have some extra help in getting started again. I've never been the avid knitter, but just clackin' the needles for a while is relaxing and fun!

Howdy all!! I just decided to take up knitting 2 weeks ago... thought it would be a great hobby since I don't work for the month of August (the joys of being a dance teacher!). My grandfather had just started to knit before he passed away, and from what I understand we are VERY similar.

I've already figured out knit, purl, increase, decrease, elongated stitch, cast on and bind off... it feels great to know all of that after just two weeks! I currently have 3 scarves on needles and I'm completely obsessed

My ultimate goal (for now) is a cute sweater pattern I found on knitty.com. Men's wool knit sweaters are so pricey that I'd much rather know that the $$ I put into it also came with my own creativity!

Sorry for the rambling, but thank you for such an amazing resource!

Hi Mike, Yes, size 10 needles will work fine with worsted weight yarn. If you are a loose knitter, you might want to switch to size 8 or 9. Just try it out and see what looks best. Good luck!

Hello there!
It sounds like you are using a chart for the intarsia portion.

Your chart will have rows of symbols for the section you're working on. Just start on the bottom row, and read the symbols from right to left. Then, go up to the next row, and read the symbols left to right. Keep going back and forth this way as you go up the chart. Soon, your knitting will match what you see on the chart, and it will get easier.

If your knitting is done with stockinette stitch, be sure the knit the rows on the right side, and purl the rows on the wrong side.

Good luck!
