Hello, my name is Julie and I'm a Fiber Addict......(Intro)
It all started about 3 months ago when I met my sister for coffee. I brought my yarn along. She taught me knit - I picked it up easily and wanted a purl. She refused saying it was more than I could handle for a beginner - I begged and pleaded. By the time they asked us to leave the coffee shop (it was closing time) I was knitting and purling and now I can't get enough!
I know this may be a honeymoon thing but I simply can't stop thinking about what my next project will be.

I have vowed to myself that I simply WILL NOT begin a project unless I have completed the previous project. This has been great, however, I now find myself without "in-between" projects. Does that make any sense?

My sister told me about knittinghelp and it has been great. I have been able to find all my answers so far thanks to all the wonderful people on this board.

I look forward to meeting the knitters on this board and to seeing all the projects you are working on.

If you knit an item of clothing for a small child, it MAY help you keep that promise. You want to finish the project BEFORE they grow too large for it.

Welcome!

Hi Julie, welcome!! I live north of San Antonio-where are you, if you don't mind me asking. Actually we live in San Antonio now but will be moving a bit North soon (not far enough for good sweater weather, though, lol!)
