Good for you. Lots of us started out at your age, too, although not perhaps with such imaginative needles. Hope you get a complete set soon and welcome to the forum!

Hello! *waves* Relatively new knitter here I've been knitting for about 10 months, although I haven't been knitting straight through that whole time. At this point, I think I've made one scarf (or one and a half, heh), one sock, one handwarmer (noticing a trend here?), and three hats. I've just finished my first mitten and am making my way through my second.

I've found these forums very helpful in the past, so I thought it was about time I joined.

We're happy to have you join us! Sounds like you're enjoying trying new patterns and learning as you go. I'm glad that you're breaking the trend and doing the second mittern. The picture you posted of the mitten looks great.

Welcome to Knitting Help!
We're happy to have you join us. I hope that you can make something soon too. Small dishcloths are fun to make, not too big and good practice for all kinds of stitch patterns and techniques.

determiation!
you go girl... I started crocheting and embroidery at an early age so at 14 I was crocheting afghans also I di Intarsia crochet I didn't know what it was called but my mom would order me kits I loved it. Does your one needle have a hook on it? if so it may be for that kind of needle work. Have fun Anya!

yarn that doesn't flatten?
Hi everyone. I'm relatively new to knitting. Maybe less than a year. I've made many, many scarves so far with the homespun yarn, which I learned on and absolutely love. The problem is that the yarn seems to flatten out about 1/4-1/2 way through the skein. What is the best type/brand of yarn to use that doesn't flatten and lose it's shape? I've been using the Lion's Brand Homespun. Thanks, and Happy Holidays!

Homespun is not the greatest yarn, even though the colors are nice. Pretty much any other yarn will have more bounce and give.
