Yep, I'm new to all things knit
My name is Lesley and I right before Christmas that I was going to learn how to knit. So I bought a pair of needles, used some yarn I already had laying around (I've crocheted for years) and off I went to YouTube and the Internet for guidance. Since then I've knitted everyday. Sometimes for an hour, or sometimes for HOURS (like 8) at a time. I might have a project in mind (I've done 2 scarfs so far) or I might just be practicing. I've gone from trying to knit, to picking up purling, strait to cables and color work. I created my first pattern yesterday for a sleeve for my new Galaxy Tab slate that I got for Christmas... I'll make sure to post some pictures. I've gone from knowing nothing, to a little bit and wanting to tackle harder and harder projects in just a few weeks. I have to say my niece has been a ton of help. I don't know where she learned to knit, but I know I wouldn't have gotten as far as I have without her! I'm looking forward to knitting my first pair of socks.

Besides knitting I'm a working mother of two teenagers and married. When I'm not running errands, at the gym or at work, I knit. Oh yeah, and every once in a while I go to school.

That's great pixie, that's pretty much how I taught myself to knit in high school, practiced stitches, did parts of patterns and generally just played with the yarn and needles. My second real project was a top down raglan pullover with a cable down the front. I just followed the pattern and the description for how to do the cables and it came out great.

Hi! I'm Wiske, 21, from The Netherlands. I've been knitting for about a year now and loving it. This site has proved helpful many times in the past and now that I'm knitting a pattern that I just can't seem to figure out I'm hoping this site will prove as helpful as ever yet again! Thank you Knittinghelp for being here whenever I need help. It's so nice to have a resource whenever I need.

hello from England
Hi. I'm Anneli from England. I've stumbled across this site and think that I may be among friends! I've been knitting for just over a year. I love it but still tend to stick to small items and straight lines! I tend to use the internet as my mentor - looking up 'how to' videos on you tube when I get stuck! I'm still struggling with picking up dropped stitches - yesterday was a prime example and I ended up undoing several rows - one day I'll get there!

Hello to all!

Hi Anneli, welcome! Did you check out the videos on the Tips page? There's some on Fixing Mistakes, including how to pick up a dropped st without ripping back.

Hi from Alabama
I just started teaching myself to knit and I am enjoying it. I found it frustrating to begin with, but now I am looking forward to watching the videos here and learning more.
