Hi, I'm in my third (I think) life knitting and it seems to have really engaged me this time around. I live in Western Washington and am enjoying knitting scarves, learning new stitches and I'm half-way through my first garment, a sweater for my 2 year old granddaughter. Next will be a larger and similar top-down sweater for my 5 yr. old grandaughter. This website has provided invaluable information for me when I've been stuck or unable to follow the diagrams available clearly. So far I've also discovered that the majority of knitters I've met are great people like myself. I look forward to learning from you all!
