Glad to be here

Hello to all! :waving:

My name is Shima and I taught myself to knit the beginning of this year. My mother taught me how to crochet when I was younger and I was dying to learn how to knit also. I :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: it. I have made 5 scarves but 3 of them are actually completely finished. I also taught my daughter how to knit (she hates crochet). I also make soap, candles, body butters, body sparys and a whole lot of other things. Now that I have some free time again, I have picked my needles back up. I recently posted in another thread asking how to move past scarves. I decided to knit a hat and went out and bought my first pair of circulars. After many attemps I have finally casted on for the hat :cheering: . I am so excited about developing my skills that I have a whole 3" binder filled with free patterns. Talk about eager :smiley: I can’t wait to make a sweater, socks, shawls oh the list is to long. I look forward to sharing my knitting adventures with you all. You guys are so very talented. I know I will learn a lot from you all and hopefully make some good friends.
