08:41 pm - just joined
Hi my name is Rachel and I just joined. I live in SoFla, but I go to school in orlando. I basically just started to knit. When I was younger this old lady tried to teach me but she scared me so that stopped. I loved the idea of being able to do this craft so I learned how from a book. I`ve only been doing it for a month so I`m still learning as I go but I`m having so much fun! Right now I`m knitting a blanket for my niece that was just born, but I want to continue on to other things.
The next thing I want to try is dolls or something. I can`t find any neat patterns anywhere so if you have any suggestions, let me know!
-Rachel
P.S. If any one knows of giraffe doll patterns, let me know! I love giraffes!
:)

I highly recommend knitty.com because the patterns are free awesome!!

I'm afraid I haven't see a giraffe doll pattern though.

You should try diynetwork.com for the show knitty gritty. They did some animals this week on the show. Rachel, There are several knitting groups in the Orlando area, so depending on where your located you should join one. It's a great way for newbies to learn things and to network.

I`ll try that out too. I go to UCF so when I get back up there in August I`m going to hunt one out because there are just some things I need to learn in person! lol. :)

You (and anyone else in this comm who) should consider joining orlando_knits. I know there is at least one other UCF student on there who was hoping to start a knitting group.

There are also two Orlando knitting circles that I know of listed online, Not Your Grandmother's Knitting Group and Orlando Knit Wits.

Thanks for the advice! I was thinking about joining one in orlando once I got up there, but because I don`t have a car, getting there would be really difficult. But know that you told me that, maybe I`ll start a group with that person!
Thanks! :)

The Stitch and Bitch Nation books have some really cute dolls in them (Rock star dolls)

I live right by UCF.
I was gonna start a stitch n bitch group in either Waterford Lakes or Avalon Park but I need more knitters.

Ok, now I simply MUST know. What did this old lady do to scare you off of knitting?
