Okie Dokie, here I go
Hi everyone. I've been checking out different knitting forums to see where I feel comfy, and this one is it...YEA!!!

I'm not a big knitter, not yet at least, honestly, who knows where I'll go with it, but I decided it would be fun to try something new.

I learned from my German mother as a child, messed with it off and on over the years, and I was able to teach my kids enough to do projects for classes (seriously, two college students who did textiles and needed to knit.)

We just got a new puppy a couple weeks ago and the days of spending hours in my sewing room kinda got shot, so I decided to knit.

I've done a couple pairs of slippers, an eyeglass case (out of sock yarn) and am now doing a bag with cables. I did the cables wrong so have already ripped it out to redo.

I have no stress over completing anything yet, I want to do things right and use this time to learn.

So that's that. My sewing blog is in my profile I believe. The photo (and user name) is that of my new puppy. I have 3 cats too. Sounds like a typical knitter to me.

Welcome.......you've definitely found the right "comfy" knitting forum...not to mention (why do we use that phrase when we are obviously about to do just that? ) the most helpful.

Just so you know...we love pictures and no question is to silly to ask...speaking first-hand (I've asked my share )

Right, you knit 3 tog but leave the old st on the needle, then wrap the yarn around the needle and k1 into the st again.

Hi, I hope I am doing this right. I deleted what was on this page bacause I couldn't find out where to write.

I have known how to knit since I was a little girl and have always enjoyed "trying to make something". Now I want to really learn how to make something. I am excited to try new projects.

I am working on a fingerless glove right now and have learned how to do the cable stitch. It looks so hard but once I was shown how to do the stitch it became very easy. i love the look. I plan on using that stitch on some other projects.

Well, so long and thanks for letting me join.

Hi Peggy. You would want to go to the How To Forum and above all the threads is a large orange button that says 'Start a New Thread'.
