Welcome! I love this site because you meet so many nice people!

I haven't quite ventured into felting but hope to do so one day soon. I'll be looking for advice and am sure I'll get plenty of help from everyone on here.

I commend you for living off grid power. I think that is so awesome! Because we rent our home we aren't able to do that but try to do all we can to conserve energy.

Again, welcome! Hope to hear more from you!

Knitting with love

Hello everyone

I'm new to this site. I just found a crochet site and so I figured there had to be a knitting community out there too and here you are. I like to do both so I am so excited to have found you guys. Have a great day and a super November.

Hello janben....You will need to look at the pattern abbreviations to see how they want you to do M3. The glossary should be at the beginning of the pattern.

Hi, from West Palm Beach, FL--I'm Jeffrey

I'm Jeffrey, a native of Long Island, NY, but living in southern Florida since 1997.

I'm 38 years old, male, and got into knitting for two reasons:
- around 1993 or so I discovered a love for knot tying when my brother got me a book on the subject
- my mother, who died in 2001, was a phenomenal knitter for decades, and I wanted to be "closer to her" in this way

For some stupid reason, I never got Mom to teach me to knit all during those early years. I guess it just never occurred to me how cool it would be to be able to make knit projects (like she had always done). I stuck with my knotting, which was (and it puzzles me now how it could have been) enough for me.

When Mom got sick, we were going to have her teach me to knit so I could carry on the tradition, but unfortunately her decline was far too rapid to allow for it. So after a good deal of procrastinating--during which I learned to fly and to skydive--four years after she was gone, I marched down to a local knitting store ("Great Balls of Yarn" here in West Palm Beach), and signed up for a beginner knitting class.

So that was 2005. I've known how to cast on, knit, purl, and cast off, for four years. It's time to learn more!! (Right?!) So I was back at the store yesterday to inquire about an intermediate class. It was so funny--when the manager of the store came out from a side room, she trumpeted, "WE'VE GOT A MALE!!" That kinda feels good, y'know?

So the next intermediate class is on 11/14/09 and I plan to join in.

My ultimate goal is to be able to knit myself a ten-pound sweater (I kid!) like the kind of huge cable knit thing a sailor would wear in a Nor'easter off the coast of Maine. Something in heavy black wool, about an inch thick, you know? Maybe natural color, I dunno.

So, I guess I'll see you all around this forum as I try to learn more about this stuff. I've already learned the "long-tail cast on" from the video on the main page, so thanks for that, whoever is responsible for producing it.

Nice to find this site here!

Blue skies,

Just wanted to welcome you aboard, from another male knitter. There are several of us 'lurking' about the site. This is a good place to come for hints, tips and just a good community to hang out in.
Knit 2, Purl 2, Knit 2, Purl 2, Knit 3......Darn!
