Hello. The first thing everyone seems to say is who taught them to knit: that would be my grandmother. About four years ago I got back to it and started making scarves with cheap yarn to see if I would actually finish projects. I did. This year I gave in to the dark side and started buying yarn before I was ready to use it which seemed to mean I can really call myself a knitter. Cheers.

Also, I started buying better yarn. Very satisfying.

Hi preister, Welcome from Chicago. I'm always buying yarn without a project. I'm also know I'm a yarn snob. I have had a taste of the good stuff and I like it. I knit with a group and we sometimes have group knit along and you will always hear why doesn't mind look like yours when it its the same pattern. I always say its the tension, the way we knit I swatch and some don't. I knit because it relaxes me so I take my time. And last I'm a knitter and I'm proud of it. I welcome you to the knitters club. We all have the same problem and hope there is never a cure.Donna

My grandmother taught me to knit, too. Only the knit, throwing. Did that for years. Now I'm a picker.

Welcome, welcome. Come early and often. This site seems to be getting quiet. Too bad. It's not cold enough that we're all knitting ourselves into a corner, is it??

Very cool, learning from your grandmother. I learned on YouTube. Feh.

And yeah, a nice, succulent yarn can make for a pretty tactile experience while knitting. Love that. Welcome to the cabal!

Welcome to the KF, preister! My parents were always too busy to take me to classes, so I taught myself to knit. It's been very satisfying.

Keep on knitting!
