I am so happy that I stumbled upon this site!

My name is Maria and I live in Northern California and have been knitting since I was 20 -- many years ago!

Lace patterns are my favorite and although I have been knitting for years, I have yet to knit something for myself. I'm hoping that will change this year.

I look forward to getting to kniw all of you and learning some new tips as well.

Hello everyone I am Ladybiker and it is my first time here.

you can knit and purl on circular needles but it will still be round just make sure to keep the work straight and use stitch markers

If you mean can you knit back and forth just like you are using straight needles, sure. Just pretend they are not linked together and use them just like straights.

Knewbie to knitting
I inherited a ton of knitting supplies from my mother-in-law. I have never knitted before but I am willing to learn. I am looking for easy but useful patterns to start off with. I live in a craft capital when it comes to this stuff (Western NC) and have lots of friends to help out but they are mostly at work. I look forward to everything that I have to learn from here.

Hi Marcie!
I'm in North Carolina also! If you look at the links in my signature below, you'll see "Beginner Knitting Patterns". Check those out, and get started! Good luck.

hello
I am so excited to have found this site. I have been knitting for over 20 years, but have kept to fairly simple patterns. I am branching out some and getting frustrated with some new methods so I am hoping to find some help here. I have watched a few videos and they have been great help.

Hello!

I am a brand new knitter and feel quite slow. I have wanted to learn to knit for years and tried to teach myself but didn't understand written instructions very well so gave up. One day I was driving through a parking lot and saw a yarn store and gave them a call. I was happy when they gave lessons. I had my first lesson just last Thursday! My first project is a dish cloth. Simple you would think!

I work FT as a Registered Nurse. I also love scrapbooking, photography, traveling, hiking, biking and now knitting! I have 4 furbabies - 3 cats, Pandora, Chloe & Felix, 1 pug, Phoebe.

The store gave me this website and it has been helpful watching the videos. I want to work up to knitting socks but feel I have a long way to go!

Jana
