Hi. My name is Stacy and I am a newbie!! I have been knitting mostly in the evenings for the last two weeks, so in total, probably about 10 hours. I have a 17 month old running the house these days, so I have to wait until he goes to bed! Anyway, I have been looking for a knitting forum and I have found so many useful ideas and tips on here already. I was also relieved to hear that I'm making some of the same mistakes that most beginners make, i.e. adding stitches, holes, dropped stitches, etc. I was starting to think that maybe knitting wasn't for me, but now that I know it happens to everyone, I am encouraged to keep on going! I have started the same scarf five times now!! Right now I'm teaching myself from a book that I absolutely love, but in April I am taking a four-week class that I am very excited about!! I think the hands-on experience of a class will help me along!
Well, I just wanted to introduce myself and I hope I will have a finished scarf one day to show you all!!
