I'd wanted to learn for a long time - a friend showed me how to cast on when I was about 5, and it took me several tries - as well as help from a few books and the internet - before it finally clicked.
I did - I bought a how-to book and practiced until it didn't look like a big tangle. I also got some direction from fellow knitters and knittinghelp.com for more advanced techniques.
It all finally fell into place for me in 2008. I've been knitting ever since.
I love geeking out, making things, and providing never-ending sass.
This is a great group of people of all levels of knitting expertise. I felt very comfortable, learned a few things, and am looking forward to the next Meetup.
