I've posted a few times but never *formally* introduced myself. I'm Kelly Jo, from Maryland, and I have recently become obsessed with knitting!! I'm only 25, and I think it's so great to see such an increase in knitters from my generation! I've always been very crafty, and just learned to crochet last year, and quickly realized that all the fun patterns are knitting, so I jumped right in. I must say that I am one of those people that believes I can learn anything, in only one day, and I always think I'm capable of just a little more than I really am...so this forum is great, because I always seem to need a little help, and although I ask him, my husband never seems to know how to read the patterns?!?
The lady at my LYS laughed at me when I took her the pattern I wanted to start with, and she said, well maybe you should start small, and you definitely should take some lessons. I said "Are you crazy lady?! You obviously don't know me...I'm a right now kind of person" I went home, ordered the pattern and yarn, taught myself how to knit, did my inaugural scarf in two days and was dying for the stuff to come in for my felted bag! Saved myself $45 in lessons, $45 can buy a lot of yarn!! So now I find it a little hard to walk into the LYS, they're too expensive anyways!
Anyways, I digress...So far everyone here at KH has been so helpful and I can't even begin to tell you how much I love the videos, what a great idea! I find myself addicted to this site while I'm at work and can't knit, and then I'm so excited when I get home that I can't wait to knit!!
