Thanks for the nice welcome..
It's been frustrating learning how to knit
I have seen the videos and they have helped me a great deal ..I would love to make some socks but I am still having trouble with 2 needles I can't imagine trying to knit with 4 or 5 ..

Welcome
You'll love it here!! This is my favorite site of all. I am "here" often every day...when I should be doing some housework.

I learned how to knit socks in the Fall from the Toe Up method by taking classes at my local yarn shop. Do you have a LYS? They usually even have "help" classes. Hopefully there is one in your area. Maybe classes would help you out too.

Have fun here. :XX: :XX:

Thanks Celine

I did find a couple of places by me in Barnes and Nobles that have knitting clubs once a month I am going to try to make one of them..Here is a picture of my last knitting project it is a bath mat ..I found Bernat Velour chenille yarn at a dollar store it is so thick and soft. I did crochet the edges on it though..

Hi, you are going to love this place, it's so great. For socks try Silver's tutorial, it's pretty great too. I did one sock with her tute and then made a pair out of real sock yarn for my grandson.
Glad you're with us,
Nikki
