I am an American but am living permanently in Greece. I just started knitting and love it.

Hi, Amalia! I'm younger than 70!

Hi, I'm Niki and I live in Italy.

Amalia, I agree with you.
I don't know any young knitters here in Italy.

I'm 40 years old and I know a woman who is 45 years old and she knits.
Well, I wouldn't say that we are OLD, but I would like to get to know younger knitters who likes to knit something cute and funky, you know.

I go to 2 yarn shops here in my city and the owners are in their late 60's.

Well, I guess the boom of knitting has not arrived yet.

Ciao,

Niki

Hello everybody

I'm originally from Scotland but have been lived in Cyprus for 3 years.
Knitted many years ago and have just recently started again. I am really enjoying it again.
To my Greek friend ashamed to say I only know about ten greek words but trying hard to learn finding it very difficult!

I also find Greek very difficult to learn. I didn't have so much trouble with German when I took it in high school and college. I have reached the point where I can understand some and read some, but my speaking is horrifying.

Hi

Here comes a German knitter, living in the south of Germany near the Lake Constance :-D

As I was a child my grandmother teached me how to knit and I did it all the years and enjoyed it very much....... a few months ago I started to discover English knitting sites and it is so amazing for me!

I feel like I discovered a new continent

Hi Krautie!
My husband and I are flying to Germany on the 25th of this month to visit daughter and family in a village near the French border (Kashofen). She had second baby this week so we will now get to see two grandkids. Unfortunately, we can only stay about 9 days so we won't have time to get to Bavaria. Hoping to find a nice yarn shop somewhere. I love Addi circular needles so I wonder if they might be a better buy in Germany rather than here in Washington state U.S. I speak Swedish, too, but only a few words of German. I am trying to cram, but time is short! I had good intentions 6 months ago!

@ Lynnea
Sorry, but I don't know Kashofen

But I hope you will find a nice yarn store there

I don't know the US-prices for Addi needles - but the prices for yarns and needles here in Germany have gone up a lot in the last years. Almost all other prices too, since we have the Euro x-(

Nevertheless I hope you will enjoy the time in Germany and I wish you a wonderful time with your "German family" :D

Perhaps you can learn a few words for your next stay there? 11 days really are not enough

@ Nikita-amimono

Almost neighbours, yes
Northern Italy is just around the corner
