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 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 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.

I wish I could knit at work. Too busy lately, though.

That, and I actually need to learn how to, first.

Yeah, I think it's easier than knitting, at least easier to do while studying, watching TV, etc. and generally looks nicer (there's not obvious holes, dropped or added stitches, uneven edges, and makes a thicker fabric). However, the cost of buying enough yarn to make a nice afghan is more than just going to Kohl's and buying one. That's why I quit.

Yay, a knitting thread!!!

I learned to knit when I was in high school. I've picked it up again off and on through the years. Currently, I have misplaced my needles, so I guess I'll have to go buy some new ones. There is such a plethora of yarn choices these days, that I don't even know where to start.

Geeky knitting story....when I was a senior in high school I was cast as Marmie in a production of "Little Women". I actually had my knitting on stage with me and used it to keep my hands busy during several of the scenes. After one performance, a woman came up to me and told me that she could tell that I actually knew what I was doing and wasn't just "pretending" to knit. hehe. And I gave the finished product (slippers) to our director on closing night.

Dammit, Sicy, now I'm going to have to go out, buy materials and get started on making something! lol.

I usually get my yarn from the thrift store. You'd really be surprised how much yarn they have there, and for like 25 cents!!!
