I am Carol
I just restarted knitting recently& I the love this site.

Last week I started a Harry Potter knitting group at a high school I work at. Most of the kids are enthusastic but don't yet know how to knit. I recommended this site to them so them could practice over the Holidays. It has been very helpful for me.

(We decided to sew all of our gauge swatches together to make afgans for the homeless in our area.)

Thanks for having such a great site.

Welcome! I work at a high school, too. Haven't started them knitting yet, though.

This is such a great website. I wanted to try knitting about 5 years ago, so I bought one of those teach yourself to knit kits. After 2 hours of trying I got no where. About a week ago I thought I would try again. My wonderful husband found this site and I actually learned how to knit! And purl. I am so excited to add this great skill to my list of creative activities.

Hello Knitters!

I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm really enjoying this site. The forums are great!

I'm a 50 yr. old dialysis nurse, wife, mother of 3 sons and grandmother to a one yr. old granddaughter. We live on a farm, and DH used to have a dairy herd but is semi-retired, driving a feed truck part time and planting crops on the farmland. We live in Ontario, Canada.

I've been knitting since I taught myself at age 12. I really enjoy knitting, but also sew, and quilt a bit. Knitting is still my favourite fibre activity though.

Currently, I'm working on a white "throw" for Son #2 and DIL. It's a pattern from DragonPine Designs, called the "One of a Kind Throw". It is a kit that has several different types and weights of yarns, ribbon, shiny stuff, cottons, eyelash, etc, knit in vertical strips. I have about 100 more rows to go....should be do-able if I get left alone for a few evenings.

I use and really like my Denise needle sets. I have two, so I never ever run out of needles. For the smaller sizes I do use Addi's and have some Brittany dpn sets too for socks.

That's about it for me. I look forward to spending some time reading the posts and getting rid of some of my Yahoo knitting groups that are really getting a bit repetitive topic-wise.

Hi!

I joined Sunday night to ask a question and got such a fast response that I came back for more!

Everyone seems so nice and there is so much knowledge here. I've been reading all of the threads.

My name is Liz and I'm 25 years old. I live in Seattle, WA. I just moved here with my boyfriend of 7 years from our hometown right outside Buffalo, NY. We've only been here since late October, but we like it so far. It was a big move - away from everything and everyone.

I started knitting in Jan 05 when a bunch of my family started. A friend of ours would come over and teach us classes and it became a nice little knitting group.

Unfortunately I had to leave that group and I'm here trying to figure out knitting on my own! I'm still a beginner and feel frustrated lately without anyone to help me. I haven't been able to get any projects started b/c I keep messing up! I'm determined to learn by books, videos and stuff on the net now though. Hopefully it will work.

I also scrapbook. I'm on a few design teams and am also a freelance artist. I work full time for an online scrapbook store as well. My other great passion is painting. Mostly tole, but I love oil and watercolor as well.

Thanks for letting me introduce myself!!!

hiya folks!

i'm danielle, 34, from winston-salem, nc. i started out as a crochet person, taught by my grandmother at first...but my lack of motor skills at age 8 frustrated us both. i picked it up again at 30, and WHEE!

now i'm knitting, with the help of Knitting for Dummies (great book!) mostly because i've always wanted to make sweaters, and i can never seem to find really neat sweaters in crochet...always knit. so here i is!

this looks like a really happy place full of really nice helpful people. thanks for being here!
