Hullo, I’m in hertfordshire, u.k. is this site typically based and used from across the pond? am new to the site and cannot quite yet figure it out and so need to spend some time learning how to use it and so on. keen to hear off anyone. i use lionbrand alot and love their site for their superb free patterns. :happydance:

Hi venusspeciment, I live in essex. there are quite a few here from the UK and all over the world. I joined a couple of months ago and have learnt a lot here in a short time. Everybody is very friendly, the only problem is that I now spend more time on KH than I do knitting.

If you are interested why don’t you pop over to the charity page and look at the oddball baby blanket, a few of us from the UK have joined in and are making blankets to send back to the US.

Hi Venusspecimen,
I am from the UK. Swindon in Wiltshire, I now live in the USA, miss home, would love to hear from you. I live in New Mexico which is in the USA not Mexico as my Mum always thought. I live in the mountains, it is very pretty here, some snow right at the moment. And Cold. Happy New Year to you. And Happy Knitting.
There is a knitting group here and we have a great teacher, she is a knitting judge, So I can get lots of help. Lucky me.
Droppsy.:stuck_out_tongue:

#12

I live in Kent, and find it hard to get quality products made in this country. Even when it’s a British company, the products are often made elsewhere for cheapness. My local yarn store was also 2 towns over and has closed, so I have a choice between the woman who makes baby clothes and carries some yarn, and charity shops. I have to get anything specific online, therefore

Hi

I live in Lancashire and have just joined this site. I am a novice at knitting with no one to ask when I get stuck on a pattern. Now I work partime I want to to be able to learn to knit all those lovely baby things I couldnt knit for my own children ( had to pay someone else to knit them) as i want to knit for my g/children. I can knit but it all goes to pot when i get to the shaping and its a pattern so everthing I have knitted so far has had plain sleeves and top. Now knitting is back in fashion I am determined to learn properly. I am looking for local knit and natter groups.
