*dances all about excited*

I just now learned to purl!

I have posted here once before (because I didn’t realize I was doing a garter stitch, and the wonderful Ingrid helped me)

My FI was unappreciative, so I figured I’d tell some people who’d understand.

I’m so excited! The little v’s are so pretty! I really like garter stitch, I knit a whole bib, but…I didn’t feel like I was really knitting yet. And I was having such a hard time with purling. My fingers simply would not cooperate.

But then I figured, after I finished the bib this morning – hey, I know that I can do this. I learned to knit in just a few minutes, not even a half hour. and now I can do it really quickly and evenly. And so I tried again. And it just worked!

:slight_smile:

And…nice to meet you all! I have been lurking about, and you all seem so very nice. I am excited to be here!

congrats! Now there’ll be no stopping you :smiley: welcome out of lurkdom.

Isn’t it exciting!?!?! :cheering:

nodnod I now have several rows of stockinette – I’m still as slow as a sloth on purling, but I’m getting there – and I am just about as proud as I could possibly be! :slight_smile:

Congrats. :happydance: Can’t wait to see what you’re making!

Congrats! And welcome out of lurkdom!

:cheering: :cheering: You’ve now mastered all the knitting stitches there are! The rest is in their arrangement. :wink:

Congrats Hem!

Now I feel like a ding dong for asking, but whats your name mean? Im sure its obvious, but just not to me. :slight_smile:

It’s not obvious, I don’t think. It means “Just Believe” :slight_smile:

Congrats hemaccredo,
By the way, do you like elderberries? I like the wine myself. But sometimes hamsters get in the way.
