I am a brand new knitter! It is something that I've always wanted to learn, and I finally got around to it this summer. I'm a teacher, and a group of us decided to get together and learn from another teacher we work with who is an amazing knitter. I've also used this site quite a bit, and it has been very helpful!!!
I have two "WIP's" (both scarves, of course), and I'm looking forward to branching out to new projects too.
