Welcome, Cameron. It's nice to have young knitters. Be patient with those of us that are a little on the old side. We do know some, but not all of the l337 shortcuts young people use.
Let us know who you are knitting for so we can direct you to projects you might like to do. You might give us the ages of people you are knitting for. I mean we don't want suggest something for an older lady when you are knitting for a younger brother, right? So just steer us in the right direction so we can help give you some ideas.
srry i was in a hurry i had to go to my big brothers school.
i am knitting for my Big bro, boy, age 14 Cousin, boy, age 20, Cousin, boy, age 22, Cousin, girl, age 17, Aunt, girl, (i dont know age), Uncle, boy, (dont know age ), Grandma, girl , age 65, Little sister, girl, age 8 , Little sister , girl , age 6.
hope that helps both me and you. =] P.S (i know it is alot of ppl that is why i am starting now lol)
For those who don't use l337 (elite spelling and yes, I had to have one of my sons interpret some of this for me):
lol: Laughing out loud/lots of laughs - but I think most in this community already know that.
Okay, Cameron, now that I've interpreted for those that need help, let's see if we can make some suggestions. Do you know how to knit in the round? I think for all the guys, a simple knitted hat would be nice.
