Hi everyone,
My name is Richard and I live in New Hampshire. My wife taught me how to knit and crochet. Right now I am not very good at knitting, but since I came to this site my enthusiasm for the craft has increased greatly. I have already purchased two books by Sally Melville "Knitting Books 1 & 2", and another one put out by Vouge Knitting. I don't know how well I will do with those books, because I am better learning to do something "hands on" than I am from a book. Be prepared, because what I can't learn from my wife or those books I'll be drawing on the expertise of the people in KR.
This site is amazing. I love the yarn reviews and how you can see a picutre of a completed swatch. The most impressive thing about this site is the forum(s) and the wonderful who make them up. Earlier this morning I had answered a post on "any male knitters here", and I have to thank everyone who responded with such a warm welcome.
The sun is shining and the foliage is a peak. What a wonderful time to live in New England.

Richard

Richard, I'm so glad that you have decided to "invade" the forum and hope you will "pop in" more than every once in a while.

Ditto- :) Another welcome-- I think you'll really enjoy the Sally Melville books (although most of the patterns in the knit stitch are for women, there were some designs for men in the purl stitch, i believe-- if you like to knit for you :) Be careful-- as someone else warned we're a group of enablers around here-- helping people accumulate stashes of yarn and WIPs :)

Welcome, Richard in NH! We don't "see" many fellows here (though some may be lurking), so it's always great to hear from one. Looking forward to your input and ideas,

P.S. I grew up in SW Quebec, and miss the leaves. Our falls are glorious, but there are no sugar maples to produce the red ones.

I use to have stashes of yarn. I made the big mistake of packing them in cardboard boxes and storing them in my cellar. Not a good idea! Got a little dampness in the cellar and over time the yarn started to mold. It broke my heart, but I had to throw the whole stash away. Now any yarn that I have left over is stored in the spare bedroom closet.

Be careful what you wish for....this forum is likely to hook you into knitting so deep that you'll never want to get out!

Seriously, welcome again to KR, we're glad to have you!

And books. Don't forget books. Oh, and needles. We insist that you have nothing but the best, and that includes advice. Ours, of course!
