knitterly observations
I have been more of a lurker than a participator for quite some time...but I have some observations: this is THE most user friendly knitting bulletin board I have ever seen. Everyone is very supportive and friendly, no one makes disparaging remarks about other posters....there are lots of talented posters on this site......both as knitters and with great sense of humor ( reasons to explain yarn stash to a posters mom)..... and, because someone yesterday posted about the pattern-a-day calendar being on sale I HAD to go to Borders today and got the last one!!! It was only four dollars so I also splurged on "simply knitting" magazine from England (of all places). I reallly like it but it is 8.99 an issue so only allow myself to get once in a while. Thanks for being here, I have learned alot from all of you! Tillie

Wow, I get to be the first one to say Welcome to the forum! This is a great bunch of knitters here, I tend to read more than post but when I do ask a question, I always get real good answers.

I agree about this being THE friendly knitting forum. As a male knitter, I read through a number of knitting related forums that were either unfriendly or downright hostile towards male knitters. I was quite happy to find this place and have felt nothing but welcome here.

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.

We don't tolerate snarkiness and meanness here. No way, no how!

It is the friendliest place around--funny, supportive and warm. My home away from home. (or is it home within home?)
