Knitting!


A few years ago, I tried to learn how to knit using a dvd. I got the general idea of it, but kept getting tripped up and so I put knitting aside. Last week, our neighbor had a Pampered Chef party and invited me over. I had a great time and discovered that there was a knitting group that met in our development on the first Tuesday of every month. The ladies of the group welcomed me with open arms and this is the fruit of three hours of labor! I know that it is not much, but I practiced casting on for more than an hour and then knit several rows, ripped them out, and started again. I am really excited to have this group and to be learning to knit after wanting to for years!

Do you know how to do any handcrafts? Do you belong to a group?

I have recently become a knitting fanatic. :-) I don't belong to a group in real life, but I really enjoy Ravelry for an online group.

That's great! I just found out that there is a knitting group that meets on Thursdays here in town. I can't go tonight (obviously Vespers) but I'd like to try to go next week. They said they'd welcome crocheters!

I love the yarn color, BTW.

I love knitting, but I don't have any groups nearby at the moment. :)

I started knitting a few years ago and taught myself mainly from knittinghelp.com. I still go to it when I need to learn a new stitch!

Knitting and crochet really have been such a blessing. I just love making items for the people I love and waiting rooms are no longer boring!

I knit, crochet, sew and patchwork - a little bit of everything. I love the creativity.

There are lovely, modern knitting patterns for babies and children from authors like Debbie Bliss - you will likely find her books at the library.

The one I have is Baby Knits for Beginners and I've made the stalk beanie in it countless times. It's quite easy to make and takes only one ball of wool.

The colour of your yarn is very pretty, and the bamboo needles look so stylish. Well done on learning how to knit. The ladies in your group will be so glad to pass it on.
