    Hi @kirstyb and welcome to the Community.  It's nice to meet you and thank you for joining us.  You have certainly come to the right place to meet new friends and to receive lots of support.  We are a friendly bunch of people on here and I hope you enjoy your time with us.  That is great you love to knit.  I enjoy knitting too and have a cat also.  I bet your 5 cats are lovely!  Lots of us on here have pets and we like to share stories about them at times.  I'm sure you will make a very valuable contribution to the forum.  I certainly look forward to reading more of your posts.  If there is anything we can help or support you with then please just ask.  All the best.  :smiley:
