Hi Portia - from Downunder in Australia (OZ)
I mostly lurk, but this group is very friendly and helpful. If you have a question I am sure someone here will be willing and able to help.

Welcome, Portia. There is another blind crafter who posts here sometimes. His name is David. If you know the basics of knitting, then you can do anything!

Hi Portia,
Welcome! I am very interested in knowing how you learned to knit. I have been asked to teach blind people, so I am very interested in knowing how you learned.
David knew how before he became blind.

Hi and thanks for the warm welcomes from you all.. I learned in high school and I had been blind for a while.. I learned to distinguish between the two stitch of k and p for starters to just get the idea.. When I first started knitting, the first things I learned was a scarf.. Worked n a ribbing pattern.. and then, I started just making my own afghans in a basic purl or knit pattern.. I am now doing two afghans in a pattern a friend that I used to go to the Braille Institute with.. We swap patterns back and forth from time to time and get ideas from each other.. and I also belong to a group on msn for knitting.. Plus I have a couple of friends I chat with on yahoo messenger with and get ideas and ask questions about knitting.. So every little bit helps me.. I enjoy finding and learning new techniques.. Plus crafting friends make wonderful friends for life I say.. anyway, thanks and I plan on looking around quite a bit.. Have a blessed day.. God bless Portia

Hi, Portia! I apologize for being the last to welcome you to the best NG on the 'net, I'm usually one of the first! Another of our members here, David, is also blind.. he knits and crochets and has resources for braille patterns, etc. Hope you'll continue to join us here! Noreen, in middle Tennessee, USA
