My grandma taught me how to knit at 12. I was busy showing and riding horses. So knitting was put aside but I kept with crochet. I am a bit sensitive to making errors and wondered if help is to be had or if You are all professionals. Call me scaredy kat. LOL

G'day from Australia and welcome crazystitcher. This is a wonderful supportive site and it has members of all levels from beginners through to very experienced. Google and YouTube are great places to brush up on your skills but also a knitting group is a wonderful and sociable way to get help. My knitting group is meeting today and I look forward to being in a fun and supportive group of likeminded crafters. Check out what is available in your local area......Jen

Welcome from Dubbo, Australia! Maybe some of us are professionals, but you will find knitters at all levels of experience here. We are here to help and share, just ask. No such thing as a silly question IMO :sm01:

crazystitcher- Hi. I am a non-professional knitter. My grandmother taught me to crochet in about 1970. I learned to knit at a yarn shop about 1984. I knitted 40 squares for an afghan & stopped. I started knitting again in 2000 or so. I make mistakes, but learn from them. With YouTube & friendly knitters, making a mistake is something i can cope with.

Even professionals make mistakes. They just fix them like the rest of us, 1 stitch at a time.

Welcome from Eastern Oregon, USA. I am a self taught knitter. First from a book, my Mom had to help me cast on, cause I just couldn't get it.There is a great deal of knowledge here and there are wonderful tutorials on the net. Don't be timid, ask questions, we have all stared at one time or another. We have all made mistakes, and lots of us make them over and over. LOL

Welcome from Missouri. I'm a self-taught knitter, also. I wish that I had known about this site a long time ago because I would have avoided a few (or, maybe, a lot) of errors along the way. As it is, I am still learning and this site continues to teach me a lot. Of course I'm probably a snob in other ways, but knitting isn't one of them.

In addition to KP, I also recommend www.ravelry.com. You have to register, but it is free. Review the help section. It provides lots of useful patterns at all levels and some very useful information.
