So, I'm new to this community and my livejournal is not even a day old... I thought I'd look around for a knitting community and didn't I just find the perfect one?

I haven't been knitting very long, only since January, but I'm absolutely addicted to it. I'm slowly trying to progress my skills, moving from simple straight needles to circular, from plain knit to purling, and it's awfully exciting. Hopefully this community will help me find new and exciting directions to go with my knitting. 

I've had friends who've visited me at school and been surprised how many people they see knitting. But isn't it one of the hippest things to do? It's so much fun when someone asks, "Where did you get that?" and you can say, "I made it!"

agreed! i've only been knitting since december, but i'm a total addict. sadly, however, i have precious few things that i've knitted for myself that i actually wear. so when i tell people that i knit, they always ask if i knitted the hat or scarf i'm wearing, and the answer is usually no! something i need to remedy, pronto.

hopefully you're on ravelry. you can add me (http://www.ravelry.com/people/zut) and we can chart each other's progress :)

Ravelry? What is this!? I've never heard of it before. I'll have to look around. My, my!

The only thing I've knitted for myself that I wear is a scarf, but I'm working on a hat since I'll be shaving my head in May and being hairless is strange. I already made one hat, but being that I'm rather tiny it's too big and I think I'm going to sell it.

Brand new livejournal, and I've only been knitting for a month or two! You absolutely HAVE to make a ravelry account, ravelry is the greatest! I have been crocheting for a couple of years now, so I'm used to that. The best thing I think about campus-crafting is how many people you can get interested in it. Many of my friends now knit or crochet. Plus, what cheaper way to give really fantastic presents on a college kid budget??
