No puedo tejer, pero my grandmother used to and a lost of my family and friends still have her blankets. It's funny to go to someone's house and see one her blankets on their bed. I still have mine.

Awesome, thanks! A video is just what I need lol.

I just finished a pair of red/black/white striped socks that I like to refer to as my Vertisocks. Such is the depth of my nerdiness.
I would have no idea how to make socks.

It's a little more complicated than a scarf, but not much really. There are videos on that site for socks, too, and a bazillion patterns online.

I know how to knit a little... I say a little coz I'm left-handed and it's real hard for us to do it. I had to learn for my textiles class. My teacher spent 3 hours with me trying to make it work!

So my neighbor and my mom kind of taught me how to knit and I decided to start with something easy. Scarves! Yeah my first one was a fiasco, somehow every time I'd knit a row it added an extra stitch, so it ended up looking like a skirt or something

So I started over and got some help from my neighbor and so I'm doing a black one with a tight knit and a gray one with a larger knit. So far so good except for a few mistakes. Now I will just have to figure out how to end them when I'm finished












I am liking the gray one better and I think I could have even gone thinner.

So er... anyone else have some knitting pics/stories to share? Most likely not but it couldnt hurt to try
That's awesome work, Sicy. I guess it's not a very macho thing, but I've been fascinated by knitting from the time I was a kid watching my grandmother go at it for hours. She'd make blankets and socks for the whole family. It looked effortless to me from a distance, but when I tried it, I quickly realized the opposite, and gave up

Apparently knitting is getting pretty big as a hobby these days for younger people...that's what I hear.

I knitted some scarfs (the easiest thing ) a while ago, but I gave them all away as presents so I don't have pics of them with me now, but they look good. Honestly!

I haven't touched the needles for a while now, I'm just too impatient to knit. Excited to start one, but never going to finish it

I used to knit when I was a kid. Now, I like crocheting a lot better. It always turns out looking nicer for me.

I got a beginners kit with everything included, its a tiny little snowflake pattern. However the instructions make no sense to me, How well do you know how to do it?

I had a friend show me how she did her crocheting, it looked pretty easy.

I got my first set of knitting needles this weekend. I might play with them a bit before my class begins. I had to get a kit since that was what was required for the class, and there's a book I can go along with, which is cool.
