Hey everyone new! This is a great board with wonderful, helping people.
@Haggisman ... were you on HT?? (I don't see many monikers of "Haggis" & I haven't been on HT for years.)
@hcf ... intarsia & clothing aren't exactly "straight forward", some people never venture that far! I love that the more a person knows about the fiber arts, the more there is to learn.
@appledumpling, don't overthink knitting in the round. Just place a marker to indicate the beginning of the round and keep knitting. You don't have to worry about having to turning your work.
@Wndrflme, when I couldn't find fiber arts groups in my area, I started one. Now there are a couple! They're out there ... just keep looking.
@Jimsgrl, How are your socks coming along?
@lyn_bailey, When knitting flat, I find that slipping the first stitch of my row seems to help.
@Handwerkster, Welcome. I'm also a spinner, weaver, dyer, knitter, crocheter (felter, tatter). There is also a spinning sub-forum here. Sontags are beautiful pieces.
