Hey Jason! Welcome to the group. Good luck on that first scarf. I have only been knitting for about 18 months and have found so many answers on this sight. Just ask and you'll get so many guys here who are willing to help. Make sure you post the pictures of your new scarf. You'll have it just in time the fur Aussie winter.

Jason welcome. As you knit remember knitting is an art not a science, ask a question and you can get 10 different answers and what is great about it is that they are all right. However, we are all in agreement that we love knitting and are here to help and support each other.

Welcome, Welcome, welcome....!

Just remember - regardless of what anyone tells you; garter stitch is a gateway drug...

Right you are MMario. Next thing you know he'll be doing cables, yarnovers, even purling in public. Then, GASP, lace!

The yarn fumes are your friends... Welcome to MWK Jason and remember, knitting is fun. Even when you want to burn your needles and stash out of frustration and irritation because you swear you're doing it exaclty like that other guy did. It's fun, really.
