    new to knitting and lovin it :)

    hello all on here, i am jennie i have been into knittin now for just over a month and i must admit its brill. i was introduced by my partners sister and i will say i had the initial thought of the sterotypical thinkin of most modern young people (or so i thought). i didnt realise how much of a following knitting had and that it was not just for the old ladies sipping tea (no offence). i have only done a few projects but have a million planned. i ahve made purses, bags and teddys. i am starting a har and a multi semi patchwork idea for a gooded cardy anyhu hope to seek help and info from the site to help my knowledge grow toodles for now
