man, there are 27 pages of posts to catch up on! Haven't got much time now, but noticed this thread, so thought i'll just pop in too! My name is Michelle, and have recently been motivated to take up knitting because I want to be able to make wool soakers/shorts/longies for my 7.5month old son. So I am currently learning, can you just picture me being all thumbs with the needles??? I am obviously not comfortable yet, as i keep dropping stitches I sense there's much to learn. Probably not a good idea to have a wool soaker as a first wool project though, huh? Maybe a scarf?

I'm Debi...been knitting for around a year on and off now...still not comfortable purling. LOL But my mom just bought me some LTK patterns, and I am about halfway done with the easy peasy cardigan, and I swear it is a piece of cake!! I am knitting it for my baby due in Dec. with merino's so soft!! I can't wait to try the ribby wrap and the longies too!!

Speaking of the ribby wrap, anyone do this? I can not for the life of me figure out how I would slipt the last stitch of each do you work it after that? The yarn is in the wrong place. LOL
Anyone want to help a gal out?

Oh, and I'm sorry I couldn't go back and read all of the pages of posts...too many. :LOL
Thanks ladies!!
