I love this place
I would just like to say how much I have enjoyed this forum. It really is such a hive of creativity you can't help but be inspired, and with nice people about to give you had if you get stuck. (And you don't make me feel likw a wally when I don't understand the simple things)

I look forward to more happy reading and posting.

Thanks

Uuhhhh What's a wally??

BTW: I know this place is awesome, newbies can ask for help w/o being treated like they are STOOOPID and the more exprienced knitters have the knowledge and graciously share it with you but not in a condescending : WHY DIDN"T YOU FIGURE THAT OUT ALREADY already manner??

and then there is always the YUMMY YARN PORN~!!

I totally agree. Until I found this website all I could do was knit straight accross and purl that was it. I also used to like to crochet more as I could do it better but with the encouragement from the people here I now love to knit way more because if I get stuck I don't feel silly asking a question. Awesome site I think I am here to stay.

A 'wally' is a stoopid person ....aka dumba$$ it's usually an affectionate term as in 'you wally!!' along with a pat on the head kind of thing ...

I always feel so when people say they love it here....it's just so darn cozy!


when my brother or I would get a pimple... my dad would say, "looks like you have quite a wally there!"
No idea how he came up with that one...wouldn't make sense "you have quite a silly stoopid on your face!"

I love it here too. No way I could miss a day reading about all of you. And when I have a question or problem, this is the place to help. I've heard there are some pretty nasty places on the WW, by that I mean people aren't very nice,..........about anything. Here, even when we disagree, we do it with kindness.

I didn't think but 'wally' is quite an English word. It's more of an affectionate way of calling yourself/someone a bit daft/stoopid! :D

I know how you feel, this is a great place. It has really helped me both in the learning process as well as just having other knitters with whom to interact.

Being self-taught I have no doubt that I would still be struggling with some basic ideas if not for the great people here and the very helpful videos that Amy graciously provides.

Not to mention that this is one of the very few knitting sites I found that aren't hostile towards male knitters but are instead quite welcoming and encouraging.
