I learned how to knit at about nineteen or twenty and did it off and on over the next couple decades. In the past year I have gotten more in to it and started to learn more and take on more challenging projects.

This site looks very interesting and informative and hopefully I'll keep the momentum I gained this year going and become more proficient and brave in my knitting. :)

My name is Christine I have been knitting for about 15 years my knitting teacher was a family friend that learned from her mother as a child. Her name was Linda she was wonderful teacher. She had autoimmune disease she passed away three years ago. When I knit it keeps her alive with me. I love the feel of fiber in my hands. I love making things with my hands. I also sew as well I just love fabric in cloth form or yarn. When I have project in mind I think about the colors then the fibers. If I am doing a babies blanket I mix colors and try to match the bedding they choose. It lots of fun and I can take it anywhere I go. When I used to travel on air plane my knitting was my carry on.

Cep6, welcome back to knitting. I've definitely benefited from the advice and discussions here, and have definitely become more adventurous and proficient. Hope that happens for you too!

Christine, I know what you mean about that feeling of fibers in your hands, be it knitting, sewing, and for me, fiber prep and spinning. There's just something about gettin' your hands on the stuff that so relaxing and pleasureable. This is a site full of other folks who feel that same way, and lots of folks too, who stay close, through knitting, to loved ones they've lost.

Welcome to both of you.


Different is good. ~Matthew Hoover
