Hello knitters! :knitting:
I am new to your forum and I am new to knitting! I started a class 2 weeks ago as I was inspired by my friend Jan (Jan in CA) who's knitting I have been admiring since she started! My mom and sister are both great knitters too but I just never got into it until now. I think I am secretly hoping for grandchildren and want to be prepared!
Also, because I live in Ottawa, Canada, I needed something to help me get through February (the worst month of the year!). I am pretty crafty so I hope I can "master" this craft too! There are so many wonderful patterns!
Right now I am just trying to learn how to hold the needles and the yarn. Jan has given me a few links to check out so hopefully I won't feel all thumbs that much longer!
After a couple more swatches and a dishcloth, our first project for class is a baby sweater. I have to shop for yarn but not sure what to buy. Anything that's soft and pretty?
Looking forward to hanging out with all of you!
