I just found this site and immediately found exactly what I was looking for, the discussion on interchangeable needles. I’m looking to buy it right now.
People call me “Lu”. I love having knitting in progress at all times. Today I had a wonderful encounter with a 4-year old at a car dealership who was very interested in my knitting, and I tried to give her a taste of it. She’s too young yet, but I hope I helped interest a future knitter of America. I gave her a couple of my stitch holders, they look like little socks and she thought they were cute.
I live north of Houston, TX and have always loved knitting, I have pics of myself knitting at 10, even though I had no one to teach me and no hope of doing more than making little squares. :teehee:
I’ve made a few easy ponchos now, and am working on my 2nd dog sweater. I’m hoping to make a cable sweater for my husband by next Christmas. Even though he’s not a sweater wearer and our winters are pretty mild.
I knit Continental style but am right-handed, I hear most are left-handed.
My other love is dogs, especially of the Shih Tzu variety, but I’ll take a dog kiss from any breed. I volunteer with animal rescues and have been a foster parent for a Shih Tzu/ Lhasa Apso Rescue. I work on other rescues’ web sites as well as some official U.S. Marine web sites free of charge.
I am addicted to good forums, so hopefully you won’t get sick of me!
