Thank you Knittinghelp for being here whenever I need help. It's so nice to have a resource whenever I need.
Welcome back, Wiske!

Hello out there!
I just found your wonderful site! I am a beginning knitter and due to carpal tunnel I would like to know more about knitting boards and looms. I'm totally confused though - everything I've seen so far on the knitting boards talks about it being "double" knitting - I'm just worried that this will be much too thick. I live in Florida and would love to be able to do a few sweaters, afghans, etc. but don't really want anything as "thick" as these instructions sound. I would love some help to decide exactly what to buy and the best way to work with it. Thanks

I don't believe knitting looms make a double knit fabric, could be in the techniques used.

I'm a new knitter looking to learn and helpful tips for the projects I want to create. I was told about this site from someone I'd bought a pattern from. Recently got out of scrapbooking after 16 years and decided knitting was going to be my new hobby.


I'm a stay at home mom of two boys. Love meeting new people who enjoy the same hobbies.

Hi all

Google saved my life, and sent me here!

I'm a newbie knitter, who had never knitted in her life until 4 weeks ago...apart from an abortive attempt to knit a 6" square as part of a project for the Brownie Guides when I was 6...that mainly consisted of my mum casting on for me (because I couldn't work out how) followed by my mum knitting the square for me (because I just didn't 'get' how knitting worked), and I didn't want to get in trouble for not bring in the completed square to the next meeting

So, after a surprise yearning to learn to knit came at me totally out of the blue, I went out at the beginning of January and bought some 5mm needles, and couple of balls of yarn, a 'How To' book and went home to find happiness in a bunch of messy knots.

The 'How To' book just served to compound my confusion....but Youtube helped me see the light. A friend who knits, helped me understand the tension I needed....and away I went.

Completed my first 'proper' project...fingerless mittens...over a week ago...and currently 6" into a 22" x 22" baby blanket for an Irish charity, and squirelling a way on a second pair of needles, on multiple mini hearts to string up for my market stall as a St Valentine's display.

Whoops, long intro, sorry

Heya, I'm Amanda. Been knitting for about half a year now. I've mainly learned from youtube videos and I don't think I'm ever going to get tired of it. *grins*

Hi there. My name is Abigail and I have a little shop on ArtFire. I live in Sandpoint, Idaho with my husband, two children, and a fat sweet little chihuahua. I crochet and knit and am hoping to one day spin my own yarn.

This is a great site and I look forward to improving my skills.
