I love to knit and learned how to knit socks this past year. I'm addicted and i have trunks all over the place filled with yarns of all kinds. I do most of my knitting in the fall for christmas season. My nephews love my hats, they have several!

Beginner knitter here. When I say "beginner" I mean that I've been at it for 5 or so years but don't knit enough to have gotten much past simple squarish things. I have done a ton of scarves, a shoulder bag for myself, a big blanket....right now I'm working on my first hat. If all goes well I'll manage to finish it and a matching scarf before spring. I might even get super fancy and take a stab at some mittens to go along with the hat and scarf.

I really like the Knitty website as well - there's a rollerskating-style skirt on it that I want to try.

Count me in too! I've been knitting for about 5 yrs as well and have caught sock fever. I've knit 3 pairs cuff down with Magic Loop (never could master those DPN's) and my next venture (after the new year) will be toe up. I've knit mittens, fingerless gloves (on the needles now for Christmas gift), hats, berets, scarfs, slippers, cozies, hot pads (also great Christmas gifts and are on the needles now too), baby items and probably other things I've forgotten about. I am self taught from books and the internet. One of my favorite websites is Ravely. I only knit in the fall and spring as it's just too darn hot here in Fl to be messing with yarn etc when it's nearly 100 degrees. does anybody knit while camping?

My husband is the crochet/knitter in our family. The sewing machine we own is not mine either. He learned it from his father who would order his yarn from Germany and drag me to the fabric store so he could sew something for us. My husband crocheted the receiving blanket for our oldest son. Too bad it was August and 103 degrees, no air in the car, the day we brought him home.

How Lucky for you!! That means you get to be the "Giftee" instead of always the "Gifter", LOL. I wish I had a knitter/crocheter friend or relative. I never seem to get around to making anything for myself.

Quick, somebody post a picture. I've been itching (like wool) for my wife to connect with this forum, more. She knits in the trailer because it has good light from the window behind the dinette bench. Actually it was needlepoint this morning, but it changes with the season!

Regards,

Matt
