Hi guys! I'm Alexandra, mom to 21 mo. Brandon. I live in Florida, but I'm originally from Brazil, so please forgive my english, ok?
A friend recommended this site for the videos and I fell in love with everything here! What a cool place to hang!! Huge knitting forums still scare me a bit, but this one feels rather warm...
When I was very little, my grandma taugh me how to knit and crochet. However, for years I could only do 1 stitch... :rollseyes: So I let it go.
A few weeks ago, after a few friends started to learn, I got excited and decided to re-learn it too. That's when I found this place...
I'm still to finish my first piece. It was an Irish scarf, but I had made a cable needle myself (couldn't find it localy) and it was hard because I had to sand it every few turns, kwim?
So I let this aside for a while and started (last night) on a new project. A "Zeeby's Bag" from the S n' B book. It was the only project that fit the material available...
Anyway...sorry for the long post! I post as I talk...waaayy too much! :lol:
Beware I'm really a newbie and will be bothering with 100001 questions... :oops:
Hope to see you all soon,
PS: You can sorta see my knitting "situation" on my blog:
