Hey there everyone! Nice to meet you all! I'm a pretty novice knitter, but thoroughly addicted. I've been trolling the site for quite a while now, and thought I should sign up and say my hello's and pass on a humorous story. The wife and I picked up a "learn to knit" kit a while back as well as an extra set of needles thinking we would learn together. After sitting down for a while, I was well on my way to having a nice swatch, while the wife was still trying to cast on. I decided to let her catch up and went and checked Lion brand yarns website when the following conversation took place.
Me : "Hey, did you know that Vannah White is Lion brand yarns spokesperson?"
Wife : "*Garbled Explatives*"
Me : "You know, that lady from Wheel of Fortune"
Wife : "I'm about to go all vowels on this damn thing"
At which point she dropped the needles and picked up her crochet stuff. Needless to say, thats why I'm hanging out with you fellows as knitting companions instead of the wife. I'm just hoping to one day get her to try it again.
I do have a question,... I've seen a few threads on different knitting techniques, are there any links you folks might have to learning said techniques as well as the benefits and drawbacks to each?
Thanks in advance
