My aunt is just starting to teach me to knit because I asked her to because my mom knitted. I have just started to learn and am reading all kind of things that I don't understand on here. I have a question, will I ever understand what you are talking about? I have many things to ask her when she gets home.
Hi Josey! Sure you will understand, and probably sooner than you think! Everyone was a beginner at one time and asked a lot of questions too. You may also want to find a book at your library or bookstore; that's what really helps me.
Everyone here is a great help. I knit for about 3 years before coming here. I still didn't understand most of what they all were talking about. Obviously, I caught on pretty quick and now am one of the more talkative ones here. You will find everyone to be pleasant and willing to answer any questions. And there are no stupid questions and no knitting police.
We are but 8 score young blondes and brunettes... all between 16 and 19-and-a-half... cut off in this castle with no one to protect us! Oh... it is a lonely life. Bathing... dressing... undressing... knitting exciting underwear ....(Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Tale of Sir Galahad)
Welcome to the world of knitting. You'll love it. Don't be afraid to try anything. That's the best way to learn. One thing about knitting is that you can always just unravel your work and start all over. (That's called frogging by the way -- rip it, rip it, rip it.)
