I knit and crochet… but really don’t have any talent.  I mostly do simple things like scarves and blankets.  I have crocheted a couple berets though.  I’ve never heard of Ravelry.  Thanks for sharing.

it is so hard for me to keep count with patterns so I really stay away.  That’s bad isn’t it.  Do you have tricks for keeping count?

@beekiss2: Darn! That’s all I have too.  I still confuse myself all the time. I’ve gotten half way through many projects and just given up.

My MIL knits & crochets, and my grandma crochets, but I still haven’t learned.  How did you both learn and how long did it take for you to pick it up?  It’s something I think I’d like to get into.

I learned to crochet basics from my mom as a kid.  I learned to knit by watching youtube videos.  Virtually everything I’ve learned about knitting and crocheting has come from the internet.  It’s an incredible resource.

general question for all of you.  Yarn seems to cost a lot! Do you tend to buy the nicer yarns or stick to the cheaper stuff?

I buy the homespun and baby soft yarns for baby items because their skin is sensitive but they cost about $5.99-$7.49 each! I also use the acrylic for adult items which is $2.50 so it depends.

 

@beekiss2 I do pumpkin and apple hats! LOL. Maybe you have hearted my stuff! LOL
