Hi there!

I'm Lucy. My nan taught me to knit when I was small but I picked it up again this winter and am enjoying myself lots. Not quite a pro yet but I'm having fun and that's what matters, right?

Why people knit?
First let me introduce myself, I am a beginner in knitting and crafts once again. I am finding this site VERY useful. I am a self taught knitter and take pride in my work.
My question is more of a "just for fun" question. I believe I like to knit because it calms me down and goes for a good cause. Charity and gifts. If you wouldn't mind taking a moment to answer my question I would appreciate it.

Charity is one reason I knit. It's relaxing. You get into the zone and it's like calming meditation. The things offered in the stores are never quite what I want. It's either not in my size or not offered in a color I like. I can pick my own yarn and make something uniquely mine. I won't find four women wearing the same thing. I can customize what I make to fit me and make it exactly the way I want. Store bought goods are machine knit and thin. I can make it in a much better quality.

I made my son a pair of glommits last winter. These are fingerless gloves with a top that pops over them like a mitten. It's useful for driving or digging out change and keys while you leave the rest of your hand covered. I bought a one pound skein of knitting worsted. It probably cost me pennies to make. His girlfriend bought a thin store bought pair for $20.

A lot of times, too, you just can't get knitted items when you need them. The stores start selling summer clothes in January but it's still 30 below zero and snowing here. Knitting is sometimes the only way you can get it at that time. Sometimes things just aren't available unless you knit. Right now I'm knitting hats for preemie babies. Some of the babies are so small that their heads are about the same size around as a large egg. You can't buy hats that small.

I learned how to knit about three months ago. Now I've bought myself yarn, knitting needles, and other fun things! I also crochet too.

Newbie here!
Hi everyone! I am SUPER new to knitting; I am literally only making my very first scarf now! I'm enjoying it so much, and hope to become good enough to knit my small daughter some clothes! Once I finished the scarf, I am hoping to move on to a VERY simple beanie -- does anyone have any recommendations?! I am self-taught, and I'm proud of myself for managing this much so far!! Looking forward to seeing your creations!!
