  1. Am I the only one who has a literal yarn mountain - four feet high and at least as wide? Does anyone have yarn mountain organizing tips? I have already made a resolution of "No New Yarn in 2016."
  2. Are you a crafter or artist? Do you quilt, knit, paint, soap, do paper craft, or re-purpose furniture? All kinds of artistic and craft type outlets are welcome! This is not necessarily showing completed items... maybe you bought a pattern, yarn, or fabric. Did you go yard-saleing this week and found a bookshelf you want to paint? Show any of those (if you have a photo - that's even extra great). Maybe you finally pulled out your sewing machine and dusted it off... include that. Any little bit towards your goal throughout the week is great!! Also, if you have a website or tutorial that inspires you, please share it with us. Perhaps one of us will pick up a new hobby. ;) Let's inspire each other! _________________________ Hi All, I was away at a monastery this weekend for a chance to get away from it all and re-charge. My son's wedding is Saturday... I don't know how much creative stuff I'll be doing this week, but I'll try a little. I finished my bamboo scarf over the weekend. I had taken it off the loom before leaving and did twist for the fringe. I'll try to post photos later.
  3. We'll start by making this a weekly thread and perhaps move to monthly after the holidays. This week we're starting early, but usually I'll try to remember to start a new one Sunday night or Monday morning. Are you a crafter or artist? Do you quilt, knit, paint, soap, or re-purpose furniture? All kinds of artistic and craft type outlets are welcome! This is not necessarily showing completed items... maybe you bought a pattern, yarn, or fabric. Did you go yard-saleing this week and found a bookshelf you want to paint?

  4. I really want to learn to knit. Or do I want to learn to crochet? Or are they both similar enough that if I learn one the other will be easy to learn? I need some help. If you were a beginner (literally, people) what would you need to start with? Where would you go to learn? I do much better when I can see how to do it rather than read. Is youtube a good place to learn? Or should I go to a class, which in reality will not be easy for me to do, time wise. I want to start slow so I don't overwhelm myself and throw in the towel. Also, so I don't strain the budget. Thanks in advance for any tips, knowledge etc.!!
  5. I've been doing some knitting and crocheting lately and would love some suggestions on a nice yarn to use. The yarn I'm currently using keeps splitting and is difficult to work with. I'd like to choose a better quality yarn for my next project. All suggestions are welcome. What yarn would you choose if money was no object? Also what would you choose if you were on a tight budget? I plan to try making scarves, mittens, blankets, and eventually socks.
  6. I just made these slippers for dd and like them so much that I'm making a pair for myself. More details are in this blog post: http://sticksandastring.blogspot.com/2011/11/felted-slippers.html The knitting is very easy. The video is very useful for the folding/sewing part...which ended up not being too hard.
  7. Wondering what the knitters (& crocheters!) are making for Christmas gifts this year. I haven't started a thing, but would like to make several small gifts for some close friends / neighbors. Here in Germany, people like to hang straw stars and other shapes in their windows. I was thinking about making some sort of ornaments that could be hung in a window or possibly something for the kitchen. I'm not opposed to dishcloths, but usually make several sets for Mother's Day each year (9-12 total cloths) and get a bit tired of making those. ;) Hope to get some good ideas!
  8. Just found another reason to love my son's ipad... if you pick out a free pattern in ravelry it will save the pdf in a " library" for you. Mwahahaha....
  9. As part of our homeschooling curriculum, I've taught both my daughters to knit. This week we're enjoying the weather and knitting last minute XMAS gifts: http://www.knittedthoughts.com/2010/12/sewing-seeds-hat.html We put our heads together and designed a quick, cute last minute hat. This is a great way to teach kids to document their creativity and there's math and organizational skills involved. Can't beat that!
  10. Where do you buy your yarn? I purchased beautiful wool yarn, but it was $7.99/ skein:ack2: Do you have an on-line supplier that you like?
  11. Back in December there was a thread asking what people had planned for their knitting needles in 2010. Thanks to Astrid and the super cute slippers she posted, I was inspired to start this year by knitting myself some slippers and felting for the first time. Here they are!
  12. Now that my big Christmas sweater push is done (!) I'm thinking about next year and new knitting projects. My thoughts were to knit through a couple books that I own -- or at least attempt to. Right now I'm thinking I should/can knit all of the patterns in the Nifty Knit Dishcloths. These are little more detailed than the Grandma's fav. pattern I crank out for gifts. It might be kind of fun to see how many of the stitches I can do. I'm also contemplating the newer Mason Dixon book with the sweater (lime green) that looks heavenly. And another plan is to actually knit the one-sock-month knitalong from last year @ Knit Picks. :) Anyone else got big plans for knitting in 2009?
  13. First of all, a huge THANK YOU to those of you who mentioned the Harmony wood needles from Knitpicks in another thread! I will be getting the interchangeable circular set and the 14" straight set for Christmas, and I can't wait! My question is: how hard is it to retrain yourself to knit "continental"? I don't have any friends who knit, and I'm having a hard time understanding the directions in print. Any youtube videos or websites you can recommend that show the process really clearly? Does it take a while for your brain to "switch over"? If someone asked you to teach them to knit, would you teach them continental from the start, or is the "English" way easier to learn? TIA, Jackie
  14. OK, I know I've posted on this before, but I am a dummy. I can't find the best/easiest sock patterns. On the net I can find toe-up, toe-down, knit flat, etc, etc... but I simply don't know enough about them to pick which one is best for a novice! I've done my homework in the past month-- I've now made four, yes, four dishclothes of a variety of patterns--I can knit, purl, yarn over in a variety of ways, left twist, right twist, etc. So I'm a beginner, but now I have a variety of stitches down well in the flat. Please, please, please think I am a very dull girl indeed, and give me some clear advice--which is the best sock pattern to start with? (I'll take it as read that this is just your opinion, etc). I've gotten so many ideas and links and I don't have the experience to choose. So all you advanced folks pick for me, and I'll start! Here is what I have: double ended needles sized 2 self-striping sock yarn a small circular needle (9 inches?), sized 2 What I want: to make socks, don't need to have a fancy pattern (plain flat socks are fine), using my double needles preferably--or the small circular one if I don't have to make 2 at once, which makes my head spin I have no idea what size they will turn out, or how to gauge that, and at this point I'll make any sized socks for any sized person, as long as the pattern is simple.
  15. OK, just got my account on Ravelry and joined the WTM group. Question--how do you use the site? What are the cool feature I can't miss? I'm halfway through my second dishcloth--exciting, huh??? I've been knitting a whole week now!
  16. but I don't know how to knit. My crafting skills: I can crochet, barely, but haven't for some time. I've done cross-stitch and embroidery all my life, but I can't sew. Can I learn to knit? Can I start with socks, or do I have to work my way up through various other doo-dads? What is the cheapest, easiest, most friendly way to get into this? Does my local craft/fabric store have what I would need, or should I be looking online? My preferences would be: natural fibers, funky colors, easy patterns I know there are some great knitters here, and would appreciate any wisdom!
  17. Here's the instructions that I'm having trouble with: With RS of work facing, pat (pattern) across 32 sts from Right Leg, then pat across 32 stitches from Left Leg spare needle. 64 sts. Place marker at each end of last row. Could someone tell me what the "pattern" means? Help! Does it mean to just get the stitches all on one needles again?
