Hello, I thought I'd sign up and introduce myself. I'm not sure how much I will use these forums because there are so many great tutorials on youtube and elsewhere to help with any problems, but it can't hurt to have an account here in case I run into any trouble
I've been knitting on and off for about 25 years, but I'm still pretty much a novice. I love knitting, but a big problem for me is my knitting speed and the lack of free time I have. I'm currently working on my PhD, and I have other hobbies that take up time. Regardless, I would like to spend a little bit of time knitting again and build up my skill level, and would also like to learn how to crochet.
I was going through my knitting bag recently and found the last thing I knitted. It is a little cardigan for a baby that I knitted while my sister was pregnant but, largely due to my lack of confidence with seams, I never got around to finishing it. My nephew is now 10 years old
Prior to this, I have knitted exactly one jumper, as well as dozens of smaller items like scarves, gloves, beanies, etc. Anyway, I've started to knit another scarf to get back into the swing of it, but I'm also going to finish off this little cardigan (all I have to do is knit the band and sew it together), and I've started practicing some crochet, but I need to buy a larger hook because all I have is a 3.5mm, and it's a bit small for learning IMO.
