I'm Vickie and I love knitting!
This is my second website, and my second forum. My first website, simple-knitting.com, was started so that you could have a fun and easy start to knitting. I even tried to make the instructions as simple and as easy to follow as possible.
In order to make it a little more fun to learn I decided to create some easy knitting patterns. I just want to show everyone how much you can make right in the beginning even as you're learning. It's so much more encouraging that way.
I'm also very happy to help you as well, although I can't promise that I'll always know the answer. I do know quite a bit about knitting but not everything. In fact, I'm still learning more advanced techniques myself.So Who Am I?
A person who loves knitting and sharing my knowledge with you; a simple gal that enjoys snuggling up in a nice cozy chair, sipping hot chocolate and dabbling in knitting design.
I've been knitting pretty much all my life. It has always been a comfort food for me, a way to relax and unwind. If I'm not knitting I do love browsing through the latest knitting magazines and books.
Have you noticed how much knitting has changed over the years? There is always something new.
I have to confess that I do love the Garter stitch....umm, guess you noticed on my knitting stich patters page.
Another big love of mine is knitting yarns. If there is a yarn shop around you can bet that I'm in there squishing every ball of yarn I can get my hands on.
I just seem to get lost in the rainbow of colors and textures. The funny thing is, I'm not a 'shop til you drop' kind of gal but if you stick me in a yarn shop I'm ........g.....o.....n.....e.....Why Did I Build a Forum?
For years I have been answering questions from visitors to my simple-knitting.com website. One day I was talking with a friend who runs a forum board and he suggested I might look into setting one up. I thought that was a great idea. A forum would be a perfect way for all my visitors to have their own community and meet other new or experienced knitters, share ideas, and hopefully meet new friends.
I couldn't add a forum to my simple-knitting.com site, so I had to setup a separate site just for the forum. But now I'm able to have everything under one site, making it much easier for members to find and discuss things with friends all in one place.
