Hello everyone! :waving: My name is Heather. I’m a 25 year old wife to Josh and mother to an almost 2 year old named Elijah.
A while back I decided to teach myself how to crochet and well, it just didn’t work. :doh: I got sick a few weeks ago and couldn’t do much but lie around so I bought a ‘how to’ knit book and I’ve been hooked ever since! It’s turned out to be so much easier for me than crocheting was.
Right now I’m working on a small purse/handbag pattern that came in the book. I’ve almost mastered the garter stitch without even knowing what that was. It turns out I’m a continental knitter, which I just learned after finding this fabulous website! I actually thought I was knitting incorrectly since the book I’m learning from told me to hold the yarn in my right hand. These videos are amazing and so easy to follow!!
I can’t wait to get to know everyone and pick up a few tips along the way. I watch a knitting show almost daily and my list of projects I’d love to try are ever increasing!! Gosh the beautiful things you can make!!
Happy Knitting! :XX:
