Hi - I'm amby121. Have been knitting for a while but am still dumb about some things.

When a pattern calls for 4 0z worsted, is that the weight of the yarn or the skein?

Hello, all new peeps!

Worsted is the weight or thickness of the yarn... 4 OZ is the weight of the skein. The only problem with this is if you don't use the yarn they mention, you may have slightly different yardage. If yours has more yardage, you're good. It should be close, at least, though... all the yarn thicknesses are pretty close to standard.

Welcome Moggy! I'm learning to spin as well, but usually knit or crochet.

Hello KH!
Hi there. I'm new to the forum...and new to knitting (I hope). If anyone out there has links to threads or tutorials for the beginner I'd be very appreciative. Have a great day!

Hi and welcome. Have you checked out our video section? There's lots on how to cast on, knit, purl, increase, decrease and cast off/bind off. The Tips page has a video called Demo of a Small project that shows how to put the different parts together, and also some on how to fix mistakes, basic stitch patterns and other useful information.

HI!
hi i am laurie and i hail from the 'great white north' aka canada.

decided after finding myself abruptly UNemployed and then taking a part time job i'd start doing needle point again as a hobby and look into knitting as well.

i don't know MUCH about knitting so i am hoping to learn a bit here. one thing that did occur to me if i can do it is to make a little money on the side w/ knitting

is there anywhere on this site i can check out to give me pointers as to ideas and where to start w/ that?

Look at the Free Videos on the link at the top of the page. That should get you going. The Tips page has one called Demo of a small project that shows how to put the different techniques together (casting on, knitting, purling, casting off) to make an item. Just practice with those things for a while.
