a community for knitters in the louisville area

From Wikipedia:

Knitting is a method by which thread or yarn may be turned into cloth. Knitting consists of loops called stitches pulled through each other. The active stitches are held on a needle until another loop can be passed through them.

Knitting may be done by hand or by machine. By hand, there are numerous styles and methods. Some of these produce an entirely different end-product; some produce very similar results. Flat knitting, which is done on two straight needles, produces a length of cloth, while circular knitting, which is done on circular or double-pointed needles, produces a seamless tube.

Different yarns and knitting needles may be used to achieve different end products, by giving the final piece different color, texture, weight or integrity.

This community is for knitters of all ages and skill levels who live in Louisville, Kentucky and surrounding areas. We would eventually like to start meet-ups, or a knitting circle per say, to be able to chat, learn, teach and have a good time. I wouldn't mind crocheters to chime in as well!

There aren't going to be many rules, but here are some basics:

1> Keep posts on topic... don't post about your latest haircut and such.
2> I will not tolerate any bashing, rudeness, or name-calling. Hopefully, we are all adults here.
3> Have fun and don't be afraid to ask questions!

Feel free to post photos of your latest projects.
