Newbie here and to knitting...
Hi guys! I'm Alexandra, mom to 21 mo. Brandon. I live in Florida, but I'm originally from Brazil, so please forgive my english, ok?

A friend recommended this site for the videos and I fell in love with everything here! What a cool place to hang!! Huge knitting forums still scare me a bit, but this one feels rather warm...

When I was very little, my grandma taugh me how to knit and crochet. However, for years I could only do 1 stitch... :rollseyes: So I let it go.

A few weeks ago, after a few friends started to learn, I got excited and decided to re-learn it too. That's when I found this place...

I'm still to finish my first piece. It was an Irish scarf, but I had made a cable needle myself (couldn't find it localy) and it was hard because I had to sand it every few turns, kwim?

So I let this aside for a while and started (last night) on a new project. A "Zeeby's Bag" from the S n' B book. It was the only project that fit the material available...

Anyway...sorry for the long post! I post as I talk...waaayy too much!

Beware I'm really a newbie and will be bothering with 100001 questions...

Hope to see you all soon,

Alexandra.

PS: You can sorta see my knitting "situation" on my blog:

That is the coolest thing I've ever heard of! You must make everyone knit their own bathing suits! Hehehe.
