Hi my name's Lisa
I'm new to knitting also. I'm finding it a tad overwhelming lol. I knew how to knit and purl a long time ago, but just now decided to actually learn how to make something... I didn't realize how hard I'd find it. I was always told "all you have to know is how to knit and purl" , I see now, that's not the case. This site is awsome thank you!!! I haven't been through the whole site yet, but I'm sure I'll find what I'm looking for.
Good Luck to all and thanks again for this useful site...job well done

Re: Hi my name's Lisa
Hi Lisa,
I'm new too. I started on the 1st of October. I too was told at my first class that all there was to it was knit and purl and I had just knitted a few rows and the gal said "There, you know half of what there is to know". How untrue. It is overwhelming for us newbies BUT we want to learn so we WILL learn and as time goes on it will get easier and easier. It will become second nature. I'm sure of it.
I've already learned why I might be picking up extra stitches. Not sure yet why I lose some though. LOL.
We will get it, you just hang in there with me and the other newbies and this awesome forum. They are so fast here about helping.
The videos have helped me out many times all ready in just this short time.
Susie

I enjoy reading, quilting (started 10/11/2003), bread baking, purse making, making fabric bowls. I use to macramé and decorate cakes.
I started hand knitting (10/01/2005) and got my embroidery machine for Christmas 2005. I had 2 Bond Incredible Sweater Machines given to me in Feb. of 2007 that I'm really enjoying. http://susies1955.myphotoalbum.com/
