Im a newish knitter. Ive crocheted for years and have taken up knitting for about the last 6 months. I started with knifty knitter looms and made a bunch of stuff. I decided to get needles and give them a try. It took me awhile to get used to holding them, I did, and now Im in love with knitting.
I love yarn. I love all the different colors, and being able to choose what colors you want.
I joined ravlery, and I love knitpicks. I love looking through patterns.
So far Ive made mostly socks. Im trying to learn sweaters now. Im almost done with one shirt/light sweater. I just have to finish off one sleeve. Its a raglan. Ive got another sweater going, its a sew together type. Its also what got me to seeking forums!!
Im looking forward to many more projects and years of knitting, and am happy I found this forum. Im looking forward to chatting with other knitters.
Ive also dabbled a bit with drop spindling. I would love to be able to spin my own yarn.
I know before long Im going to want to dye my own yarns as well.
