Good Day everyone: my name is Dianne and I just found this site. I have been knitting since January of this year and am loving it. I have already got a fairly big pile of yarn and am trying to find the time to knit it all! Work definetely gets in the way of knitting. I have managed to finish a few small things: 3 dog sweaters, a few scarves, slippers, and a couple of washcloths. I think I have 5 projects going on right now and am trying to spend a bit of time on each every evening.

I am trying to find patterns where I learn new stitches and I love that there is tons of advise and help on the internet. My many thanks go out to those that take the time to do the youtube videos.

Cheers and happy knitting

Hi Quills--Didn't notice you posting your hello up there, in the middle of the replies to Di's first post. So: hello! And welcome to KR.

Right on, Di. Isn't is great? You start to knit and all of a sudden this giant world full of all this fun, engaging stuff we never really knew was there opens right up. And then we fall in!

Thanks for all the warm welcomes! I have been testing out new stitches, or at least new patterns, over the last week. I bought a stitch book and have been knitting a new washcloth almost every day and am finding some patterns that I really like. I even tried intarsia knitting a couple of weeks ago and love it. It was a very small project (washcloth) and took a bit to figure out so I can only imagine the time and effort some of the sweaters or blankets that I have seen take. Some knitters are very skilled indeed!!

Cheers and happy knitting!

Hi Dianne,

Welcome to Knitters Review Forums from Australia.

You sound like your doing quite a bit of knitting.

I totally agree with you about YouTube, the people that take the time to put up what they have made and how to make it are truly wonderful people.

Knit in peace and harmony.

Welcome from NW PA. Over the years I've made the effort to learn new stitches and loved every minute. It is so rewarding to pick up a beautiful pattern and realize that you already know how to do that "new" stitch the designer has used!

You've done a lot for a new knitter! Keep it up!

Hi and welcome to the KR Forums, Dianne!
Most of us understand the amazing capacity of yarn to multiply into a sizable stash in very little time!
There are several unforgettable threads in the archives of the Forums about how to deal with an oversized stash, how to keep husbands from seeing us import our purchases, etc, etc.
You will get lots of support and help here, and I hope you enjoy it!

Best wishes,


Life is beautiful.

Hi Dianne, welcome to the KR forums!

Washcloths or baby items are a great way to try new stitches. You can even make blanket squares with a different stitch for each square and it will showcase your knitting education :)
