This is so great! I really like the Knitting Daily emails. I have subscribed to IK for several years now and the good news is don't have to buy the patterns: I just have to go look them up- the bad news is: I have to get up and go find them!!! LOL! Not such bad news after all, I guess.
I taught myself to knit in my early 20's and had to take a break when arthritis took my hands away for several decades. But I got them back a few years ago and I've been going breakneck ever since. I just love the new yarns, patterns, colors, fibers, you name it, I love it! There's no city to which I've traveled that I haven't checked the online sources for yarn shops!
The wild thing is that my DD is a knitter extrodinaire. She's been knitting for maybe, oh, 3 years?, and she has completed the Something of the Wave? shawl? It's just gorgeous! She's done socks, and a Brooklyn Tweed sweater for her brother and she's just so talented at knitting. I'm ok, but she's gifted. Luckily, I can look over at her and she'll sigh and hold out her hand and take my knitting and fix whatever I've messed up and give it back and off I go again. Whew.
I'm surely glad to see this forum. It'll be fun to share thoughts and stories. I enjoy Clara Parke's and Ravelry, too. I'm looking forward to meeting and greeting!

So little time, so much to knit!!
