New Member -- Greetings!  
Hello everyone,

I just wanted to make a quick post introducing myself. I just started learning how to knit this past December, so I am very new at all of this -- essentially all I can do is a basic knit!

As far as my accomplishments/project are concerned, I finished knitting a pencil case (just knitting a rectangle and sewing up 1/3 of it to make a pouch) a month ago. Right now I am finishing up a winter hat. I am now in the process of trying to sew my edges together and then I will attempt to make (and attach) a pom-pom.

I am looking forward to reading about other members' projects and and eager to read the advice of the more experienced knitters.

Thanks for reading, and happy knitting!

Welcome! I learned to knit as a child but didn't keep it up and sort of forgot how to do it. Just started again a few months ago, and now I can't stop. My husband now teases me about saying, "just let me finish this row" ;)
I've been making a lot of hats and dishcloths to practice my skills, and just finished making my first sock. I'm looking forward to when I can make things like the lovely projects people have been sharing here and in the other knitting groups.

Welcome! It sounds like you are well on your way. Before you know it, you will be wroking on socks & gloves!
