Hi- My name is Martie and I live in Spokane, WA. I retired last Dec. and picked up my first set of needles in Jan. My husband says I have become addicted to knitting and for once, he is right! Since Jan I have finished scarfs, a baby blanket and several hats. Currently I am working on a charity hat and scarf and a baby sweater. My hardest project is a lace scarf that I am slowly working on. I read about this site in a book called "knitting lessons-tales from the knitting path" by Lela Nargi. Another book I am currently reading is called "A Knitter's Home Companion" by Michelle Edwards.
I am looking forward to hearing from and learning from the various knitters of this site.

Congratulations on becomming a knitter! For reading I'd suggest Elizabeth Zimmermann's books. They are filled with great ideas and such fun to read. You should be able to get them at your library.

I always wanted my own library but I didn't realize it would be all knitting books!

I said hi on an earlier post of yours, but I'll say hi again, from Northern California. A lace scarf too? That's great!

Hi Martie! Welcome to the KF & the wonderful world of knitting! Sounds like u r coming along quite nicely. Here in the forums, I think we're all addicted to knitting; I know I am!


Keep on knitting!

Welcome Martie.
Knitting is a great addiction to have. Currently I have hurt my back and I have to rest as much as possible. I always have my knitting with me as it really helps to take my mind off my troubles.

I knit a hug into every stitch
