Hello Knitting friends!
I am very happy to be here and look forward to gettting to know you all. :D I found this website several weeks ago when I was looking for a website with good instructions teaching one how to knit.
(Thank you for this!)
My name is Robin. I will be 40 years old in September. I have four wonderful children, and we live near Fort Campbell, Kentucky. I am a SAHM and we homeschool. Learning to knit was something I had long wanted to do, but wanted to wait until my two daughters were both old enough to learn. If only I had known a few years ago that Helen Keller knitted at age five while both blind and deaf, we would have begun earlier.
My daughters are Emma,10, and Beka,8. We started learning how to cast on about three weeks ago. Then, we each learned how to knit and purl. We are each working on a long row of about 20 stitches, just alternating knitting and purling. We are enjoying this so!
I look forward to getting to know you all as much as you will let me. I enjoy spending time on-line as we do some homeschooling things on-line (research) and I enjoy updating my blog every day or couple of days. My husband is an over-the-road truck driver and is gone quite a bit. So, I will enjoy visiting with you all!
