I've been lurking on this site for months and just today registered for my own account for some help on a hat I'm knitting so I felt like it was time to introduce myself!
I taught myself how to knit when I was 15(?) but was doing it in such an akward and slow way that I never stuck with it. Now I'm 19 and I've just finished my first year of college. My first semester a group of girls on my hall decided to pick up knitting and it renewed my interest. I found this site and haven't looked back!
My biggest regret is that I'm extremely sensive to wool and can't knit with any blend of it My upcoming project is on hold until I can find bulky cotton in bright orange, yellow and rust red. Any suggestions?
Anyway, I'm happy to be here!
