I am Thai live in the USA since 1st June 2008. I learned knit with my friend in Thailand for few months before left and after that learn by myself. I have done many hats,2 pairs leg warmer, hairband,2 skirts and still doing skirt. I have a sweater which knit since start to knit not finish yet . I also try to do crochet by myself. I do not know what do they call with stiches in knitting at all. I do not understand pattern . I do by guessing. I try to improve my skill and hope to understand and can read pattern one day.
