i might have jumped a bit too fast, my hands are getting used to it still; i also have a physical day job that is very heavy this time of year! and massage therapist part time. i think i like working with my hands.

Try experimenting with different types of needles... you'll find some that fit your hands beautifully

I'm in the Albany area, too. I grew up about an hour west of here and have been in the area for about 8 years now I taught myself how to knit for a scarf for my mom a couple years ago and just recently picked it back up a couple months ago.

I wonder if any of you in Manhattan know of a good knitting circle in Manhattan? I think it would be fun to get together with others and just knit.

I found a kniting group on Ravelry at Yarntopia that seems pretty active and meets once a week but they're at 108th and Amsterdam and that's going to be hard for me to go to on a weeknight after work.

I didn't know about that! I thought there was one at the Starbucks on 86th or 87th but do you mean the one on Broadway near Knitty City? ON Wednesdays? I'm on 78th & Bwy..... and I really should go knit with some knitters coz I'm feeling crazy being alone too much.

Saratoga Springs
Hello, Saratoga Springs here!

Editing since I noticed people are giving a bit more information. I've been knitting for 20+ years but am currently working on a piece that's from Drops and it's been a nightmare. I posted for help on here, English patterns are different wording than American and this is my first time working on such. It's a very cute top but whoa has it driven me crazy!
