Learning to knit as a adult (w Pics)

As a child I know my mother knitted. I think just about anyone in New Zealand would be able to say that, and while I cannot remember her knitting anything in particular for me, (I could be wrong) I do remember her knitting. I also remember trying to learn to knit at the time and giving up in disgust as a knotted mess hung from my needles where my scarf was supposed to be appearing. And that was that... at least so I thought.

That is one of the worst puns of all time. In any case, I'm just writing to talk about how incredibly addicted I've become to my Addi Click set.

Hi all,

I just wanted to take a few seconds to introduce myself, after all, a stranger in your midst (though I don't feel like I'm a stranger) must be frightening for all off you.

Aspen Leaf Wrap

I made this shawl/wrap for a friend recently diagnosed with an agressive breast cancer. She will be undergoing a double mastectomy in about a week.

Why can I not find time to knit?

My life is a little crazy right now. I had my last Final of the term today, and I have only summer term left and I will finally graduate.

I'm Leon. I'm new and my Mom says I'm special.

Hi I'm Leon and .... I'm a knitter. Or is it not "that" kind of group?
I have signed on, looked around and found my way here. I live in Wellington, New Zealand.

My first post and the best baby blanket ever!

Howdy guys.

I wanted to share with you the first project I've completed in years and possibly the greatest (and easiest) baby blanket pattern I've ever seen.

Baby Surprise Jacket Written out.

So, when I was doing the BSJ, I had a hard time keeping track of all of the decreases and increases, etc. So, I wrote it all out, row by row. I have attached it here if it would help anyone.
