I knit some- I’m working on my first major project a blanket. If I ever finish I’ll post a pic but I am notorious for starting a project and then finding ten more amazing ideas and starting them and so on and so on lol.  It makes for lots of crafty mess, and not lots of finished products to take pictures of.  I really like your hat.  Its super cute.

I crochet too! I tried knitting, but it was just way too confusing. I can crochet on a double-sided hook (actually learned that before normal crocheting. it’s easier), but I prefer normal hooks because it works up a lot faster. But the double hooks make double-sided things! Like this scarf I’ve been playing with forever. Uh, this might be huge. Sorry in advance. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m gonna try to make my SIL a blanket for her baby. I’ve got until November, but I’ve never made a blanket before, so who knows how long that’ll take.

@lybarra:   Lol! My memere taught me when I was 6, she gave up on teaching my sister though, she’s a leftie so it was too hard to teach backwards!

I LOVE to knit ๐Ÿ™‚ I find it very relaxing.

Here is a headband I made (very tiny stitches!)

I also crochet ๐Ÿ™‚ Here is a stuffed animal I crocheted. I sewed the silk belly in to it too.

I do not.  I tried to learn how years ago, but could never get the hang of it!

i can technically knit but i don’t know how to finish anything i’ve made, so i end up starting over.  i love the act of knitting while watching tv, it relaxes me!

I would love to learn!  My grandmother was a pro and we have so many beautiful sweaters, blankets, mittens, hats, etc that are still in amazing shape even 40+ years later.  She made a sweater for my dad when my parents were first married that has this interesting weave that looks like tiny boxes.  The outer knit is black and the inner knit (inside the boxes) is white.  I’ll try to photo it~   She made clothes for our dolls, too.
