Hi all (intro post)

My name's Becky; I'm 18. I'm from southeastern PA, but I go to college in central PA.

I first learned to knit when I was really little from my dad, but got bored without completely any projects. A few months ago, a friend at college decided to start knitting, and I got addicted (I'm sure all of you understand that). I've been lurking on this site for about a month, and decided I should say finally say hi.

Out of my finished projects, I think my most favorite are the socks I just finished, and a hat based on the one Jayne wore in Firefly. Hopefully I'll post pictures soon.

Everyone on this board seems so nice; I almost can't wait to have questions, so I can get to know all of you.

As a guy who knits I think it's pretty cool that you first learned from your dad.


What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

Welcome Becky! I'm sure you'll enjoy knitting/the forum as much as everyone here! Its an addiction really, I think if I had learned in college I would've never gotten any work done I'd have just constantly been knitting.

I'd love to see a picture of your Jayne hat! That's definitely on the list of someday projects for me - DH and I both need them...
