Hi, my name is Ann and after a few months of thinking of trying knitting, I finally decided to start. A person recommended this site, and I was so excited to start trying after watching the videos that my very first attempt was on bamboo skewers with twine, lol!!

I think I've been at this for almost a month. I knit both my kids a "scarf" (neither one was actually long enough) and then I knit my mother in law an actual one (which turned out nicely).

My husband is just excited that I have a hobby - besides being on the computer all the time :D

Hi, My name is Dawn. I love to TRY to knit. I bought a book "I Taught Myself To Knit" about 2 years ago and have been clicking away ever since. Knitting is addictive! I am not good at it but I can do the simple projects. I think this forum will help me improve. I am thrilled to have found this site!

I love this site
I'm Snelly thats not my real name but all the user names that contain my name seem to be taken. This is definitely a great place to get help and meet other knitters.

Hello
Hello, everyone. I just started knitting a couple of days ago. I've crocheted for a year now and wanted to try knitting. It's slow going. It seems I knit english. I can't knit like I crochet.

Thank you Amy for making this site. It has been so helpful.

Hello from New Member
Hi, I just joined this site. I learned to knit and crochet when I was 8, but there have been long lapses between projects. I recently started knitting again and am having some problems, so expect to see me in the "How To" forum very soon!

I moved to San Diego in 2009 from Washington, D.C. and am having fun discovering new shops here.

I do not feel like a new member
Hello forum!

My name is Shana. I've been crocheting since I was 8 and knitting since I was 19. I spontaneously decided to teach myself to knit during final exams fall semester of my second year of college (what can I say, I'm a productive procrastinator). I found this website and it really helped me out. You are just now meeting me but I feel like I already know everyone because I've been stalking this forum for 4 years (I couldn't think of a username when I wanted to register, so I never did). Anyway... yay knitting!

Hi, I'm Tena, I have tired to knit a few times but get frustrated when I drop a stitch so kept giving up. I have successfully made two dishcloths so far. I can cast on and knit so far. (I'm a long time crocheter). This site is great thank you

Hello
My name is Denise, and I've been knitting for over a year now. I'm absolutely addicted to it, spending all of my money of yarn and needles! I often get in trouble at work or school because I'm always pulling out my latest project during every free moment. I always have yarn and needles with me wherever I go. I recently got into crochet and am currently obsessed with crocheting hats with lots of bobbles. I dont know many knitters and wish I did - which is why I'm here.
