Hi Melissa, welcome.

You can leave the tail hanging for now, if it's a bit long then wind it up a little.

Hi again Melissa!
I reread the reply I sent you and thought I should clarify something so as not to confuse you. When I was talking about threading the tail onto a tapestry/ darning/or KNITTING needle...instead of KNITTING I should have said "yarn needle". Oh silly me. Of course knitting needles are the ones you're knitting with! You'll be a pro in no time at all.

another new gal

I am Dee. Self taught knitter who was just informed that I knit inside out!! I did try to do it the wright way, but. it doesn't work for me. I've been knitting 2 years. Know the basics and can even knit a sock, no I don't do two unless they are baby socks I have a beautiful warm red sock all sockinett stitch, waiting for a match!! It will be a year old this coming January. Problem? I can't find the pattern I used. truth be told, my dog actually did eat it. I have learned to laminate my patters or else!!

Hi deeklaver!
that is one of the funniest introductions I have read here! Welcome and have fun.
Try knitting patterns that are available online and bookmark them or download them to a dog save environment. Then they will get a match eventually.... or you get a new excuse

Have fun here!

I have been away from the forum for a bit, but I am still around!

Hello! I'm Ruth. I taught myself to knit when a teenager, then taught myself to crochet. Except for a brief period about 20 years ago, I've been just crocheting for about 40 years (except for a dozen year hiatus while I did needlepoint). Anyway, I started crocheting again in 2007. And a couple of months ago started knitting again. I'm retired Air Force, now managing a self-storage place. One grown son, at home. I also lead a prayer shawl type group in my church, and sing in a community choir. I was happy to find this wonderful community of knitters, and have already (re)learned much of what I'd forgotten.
Since I've seen at least one other 'Ruth' here, I am....

Nice to meet you all! I'm Inna. I taught myself to knit when a teenager, then decided to focus on the effective simple models. Most of them can be knit within few days. I'm working in IT company. Just moved to New York. I was lucky to find this wonderful community of knitters. Hope I can help others and meet friends here .

I've addded several photos of the most simple projects:

And several more difficult:

for me new!
I've never joined something like this forum and I really can't tell you just how exciting I think it will be!!!!!! I answered someone's quilting question about 15 years ago and 5 years ago she actually had the GUTS to leave her nice home in FLORIDA and come up and quilt/talk/stay with me for 3 weeks in NEW HAMPSHIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now that's my kinda gal! And she is a dumpling!!!! Now, on with knitting dumplings!!!!!! I've given up the quilting that really didn't catch me very much, and I'm back to knitting!!!!! I've knitted since I was 3 years old and I'm now 63! (I keep forgetting just how "old" I am). I don't do really complicated stuff as I get bored out of my hmmmmm, but I now have a GREAT grandbaby and I plan on knitting my fingers off!!!!! She's all the way up in ALASKA!!!!! I have 3 kids and they are spread across the map! I've got a kid in FLORIDA and one in Massachusetts that I just don't hear from that much, but that's okay - she has a very busy job to keep up with.

Now, I'm working on mittens for my Alaskan GRANDchildren (3) where I use the inset thumbs (I HATE those thumbs that just stick out the sides!) and along with making them out of washable wool, I also add pieces of carded wool pieces I knit in here and there on each mitten. My grandsons lose their mittens every year as the other kids in the schools don't have any like theirs and somehow they just disappear! Oh, well. I'm thinking about just sending the pattern to my daughter up there and have her just post it on the bulletin board in the school hallways! Let the mothers knit THEIR fingers off, too!

I'm finishing up a "daisy" pattern sweater for my daughter up there and it is absolutely gorgeous (even if I do say so myself!). I usually get too bored over patterns, but this one was exciting enough to keep me going to the very end!!!!

I can't wait to hear from you! If you prefer, I'll put my e-mail name out here, too ( as sometimes people prefer "silence." Take care and "I'M GLAD I FOUND YOU!"
