Hi! My name is Vicki and I am a WAHM to three little ones in the SW suburbs of Chicago. I just recently started knitting and happened upon your website. This is such a fabulous site! The videos are so helpful!

I had learned to knit as a child and didn't like it very much. However I had recently been talking about re-teaching myself and had ordered a couple books. They day my books arrived, I sprained my ankle very badly....So I have had the last 4 weeks to do very little except knit. I have completed a scarf, a felted bag. I am almost done with a large tote and am starting on a poncho for my 4 yo and a shawl for me. I am very much addicted at this point! If I have a idle moment...I am knitting! :XX:

Hi Vicki! Welcome to the club and the boards!

I've often wished I could break a leg or something just so I could sit at home and knit! I usually get up early in the mornings so I have time to knit before work, and man the temptation to call in sick hits me every time!

I have a blog you're welcome to check out, I'm currently running a contest as well so stop by!

http://www.knit-wit.blog-city.com

Great to have you here!

Welcome, Vicki!

I, too, am in the Chicago area -- Western 'burbs. There are some others on here in our general neck of the woods as well. Glad to see you here, and I'm impressed with all the projects you've gotten done, but I'm sure you'd much rather be up and about!!

And Egeria ... be careful what you ask for!!! I get most of my knitting done while I'm in the hospital with my son, and I wouldn't wish that on anyone!!! Yikes!

Hiya, Vicki! Gosh, you are a fast knitter! I can't seem to find time to knit and I don't have three kids. Just one small but demanding poodle! Welcome.

Welcome
Vicki,

Welcome from another Illinoisian. Knitting is additive, isn't it?!

Enjoy your time knitting and take it easy on the ankle.

WOW 4 of us from the burbs! Fun to know other knitters relatively close by. I don't really know anyone who knits nearby.

And Kelly...My LYS is in Shorewood just a couple miles down 59 from me! Stitch N Hook. The owner is wonderful and so patient, I just love her. I have brought work I was doing to her a couple times and she was so willing to help me out!
