All kidding aside, I've told several friends from another forum, which shall remain nameless, that this is the place to be bc of the atmosphere and a few have come over & joined us. Some have joined through Amy's videos being answers to questions on the forum. I'm just sad about the newbies that join such negative places, bc they then may think that we, as a knitting community, have a large 'negative element'. When nothing could be farther from the truth!! I've found that the majority of the knitters that I have met are the most wonderful people, willing to give you guidance with kindness and to not only share their knowledge of the art, but most importantly, to share their friendship. And that is shown HERE moreso than any other place that I've seen online and I am so happy and PROUD to say that I'm a member and always tell other knitters (ya'll know I've got a big mouth!!) about everyone here and to please come and join.
Look how quickly we are growing...it's because of Amy's hard work and wonderful videos and because once here, everyone feels welcome and that's because of all of YOU and the warmth that is shown to each and every new member.
