Just wondering if i'm the only inexperienced knitter here.

I'm new too, So far all i've made are a couple of dishcloths. I've got a scarf on the needles now but its taking forever to finish and i'm afraid that if i start something else i'll never get done!

I'm pretty new in experience. I've been knitting for a little over a year. BUT in that year I had a baby, moved into a new house that had to be remodled first, got 2 puppies, and tried to start a business. So I only got to finish a few projects. I still consider myself a newbie.

All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.

I still think of myself as a newbie. I've made dishcloths and scarves, and just recently a afghan. I don't think I am highly skilled by any means. The most advanced tecnique I've done is a YO.  Roll Eyes

Heck, I don't even hold my yarn and needles properly. I need to really learn how to do that so I can be more consistant in my work.

I dream of the day when I will be able to do cable knitting and DPN. One day! I just wish I had a teacher who could show me--it's hard forme to read directions and follow them. I learn by example. LOL

I'm new also. Biggest project so far was a pillow all in garter stitch. And now i'm starting on some scarves Grin

Knitting- if everyone did it there would be less problems in the world.
SO MUCH YARN!!!....... so little time!!
Any good patterns you see please send me a message about them.

I'm new as well! I only just finished up a scarf, am almost finished with a dishcloth and have a doggie sweater in progress. But I have like a million patterns bookmarked that I want to do eventually, lol.

My Wists!--A small but growing list.

I'm new also. I have a dream of knitting socks. I've bought the needles and the yarn. I'm making a simple little purse first and then I'll do the socks

I'm new! I've knit a dishcloth and a triangle shawl. Smiley That's it so far but I'm really wanting to jump in and do a simple sweater or shrug. Smiley
But that's how I am. I have yet to make a scarf. I made one when I started crocheting and it's pretty ugly. lol.  But not a knit one yet.

What sources (books, classes, websites) have really helped you learn?
Stitch and Bitch the knitters handbook really helped me because I'm visual.
I also got an ancient pocket book on knitting and crocheting that was really helpful too. (e-bay.)
knittinghelp.com thats the only website I've really used. But I have checked you tube every so often.
I have yet to take a class and none of my family knits. (my mom and grandma used to but grandma's hands can't take it anymore and mom hasn't done it for over 21 years.)
I would love to take a class though it would be so nice. Smiley
