    Knitting Is Awesome!

    I've been knitting for about 7 or 8 years now, and have made tons of hats, scarves and 1 dress. I've also made socks, but they're certainly not up to par. I have to tube part down pat, but when it comes to the heels, I mess up every single time, and it comes out looking like a...

    In a Feeble Attempt to Ignore the Pain Inside

    I don't know why but I took up this hobby as a way to occupy my mind. If I'm trying to figure out a pattern, I'm not thinking of anything else. My heart hurts. The one I want to love me, just won't. He keeps me going enough to barely hang on. Not a week goes by though that he...

    Self Taught

    I am slowing teaching myself how to knit.. I do crochet and I recently just started back doing it. I find that when I am stressing it relaxes me and allowes me to give that energy to my project.

    I mostly knit sweaters in open lace design.

    I use baby yarn. I make the sleeves and back solid for warmth.

    Still A Newbie

    I recently went down to visit my parents and there house is boring to say the least. However mum like me is really crafty, so she taught me how to knit. I am currently on my first project of making a scarf but it seems to be taking forever. I really enjoy this and it is...

    My Invented Squares Into Squares Knitting Pattern (good For Knitting Blankets)

    For all the ladies here who love to knit, especially if you love to knit squares for a blanket, I invented a square-into-square pattern where you can use any colors you like. To me it's verry easy to knit, and it's much better then knitting four squares that you have to sew...

    Gauge Swatch Allergy

    I'm new-ish to knitting having only learned about two years ago and so far I have stuck to easier projects that don't require fit. I have done tons of shawls, scarves and slouchy hats so I think it's time to tackle a sweater. I have never done a gauge swatch and I'm plus sized...

    I'm A Yarn Nerd :-p

    I've been knitting for over 15 years now, but strangely enough, I've only been doing the garter stitch in knitting dishcloths and scarves.  It was only this past month that I learned the purl stitch/stockinette stitch, and so I knitted some hats - very poor excuses of hats, but...

    I'm Self Taught.

    I started really badly with a very old learn-to-knit pamphlet but quickly graduated to youtube, knittinghelp, and new stitch a day. It's one of my favorite activities and has gotten me through a lot. It's been therapeutic and useful and all around self-esteem building. I've even...

    Blanket

    I'm knitting a quilt for my first child. I'm not pregnant now, and I don't plan to for a while. But I do love my child(ren), even if they don't exist yet. The quilt is beautiful. It has brown, pinks, and oranges in it in a diagonal pattern.

    My wonderful Granny taught me to knit

    when I was very young (I think about five or six) and I have always really enjoyed it. I particularly love lace knitting and have made up some of my own patterns. I find knitting so relaxing - very different from sewing which I can't do, and find really frustrating! It's odd how...

    I Make My Own Designs

    I use a commercial pattern as a base, but make my own designs. One of my earliest was a Space Invader sweater for a young cousin. Other projects are 3 patchwork sweaters, lace ones, a Scrabble board, and domino game.
