Hi Magdalen. You might get more response if you start a new thread in the Pattern Central forum. I don't have an answer for you, though if you can write a few lines where you're stuck that may help.

Hello :)
Hello! I've been using the site for some time, and it's been very helpful!

I decided to register today because I needed some more help, and thought it couldn't hurt to come in and maybe make some new friends.

Always wanted to knit, due to my mother being a knitter, but she never got the chance to teach me how to do so! I'm learning myself with the help of this site and my local JoAnn's.

Thank you for your very helpful and clear, concise directions on just about every question I've ever had!

Laura

Hello
Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a retired RN from RI. I have 2 grown sons and 3 grandchildren all living close by. I have knitted off and on for years, starting at my mother's knee. Haven't knitted socks for years but started last month on dpn's. I also experimented with magic loop socks and now know that's the way to go for me.
Thank you for having this forum and being able to keep in touch with other knitters.

Hey everyone. I'm Kanaye (Kuh-nay). I'm first and foremost a crocheter. I've been knitting for about a year now.

I'm almost finished with my first knitted sweater, an Elizabeth Zimmerman. I'm so excited, even though it has been such a pain. 3 months and I'm still working on it.

I just found this site and wonder why I didn't find it sooner. It would have been very helpful a year ago.

New Here
Hi. =) I just started knitting and learning last November. I look forward to learning new techniques and asking questions about various things here! I'm really enjoying knitting. There is something so soothing and simultaneously triumphant about turning a piece of string into a substantial piece.

New to knitting!
New to Knitting!
Seven years after retirement and I was booored! So in November 2011, I picked up a pair of knitting needles and began knitting squares which consisted of 'knit, rip apart', again and again! Being a perfectionist, I was determined to be able to knit without obvious errors and I'm quite near that point. Or I should say that I am now able to recognize errors much more quickly and am able to 'save' the project.

In February 2012, my grandson begged me to make him a hat. (Up to this point I had not actually 'made' anything). But I knitted a square, sewed up the back, made a pom pom and I finally had a hat!

Since then, I've probably knitted 25 hats and my progress has been amazing. No fancy stitches....but I have fun with stripes. My knitting supplies consist of lots of circular needles and bulky yarn which I prefer over that skinny little yarn I call string.

So I just wanted to say "Hello" to those reading this forum and I would be happy to hear from you and how you got into this obsession!

Have a GREAT DAY!
