i wouldn’t call myself a knitter but i have knitting needles and yarn.  i can “knit” scarves and blankets but anything requiring counting stiches…i’m out.

I also make scarves but that’s it.  Straight lines, same number of stitches, nothing complicated.

That’s beautiful!!  Maybe one day I’ll be where you are haha… I can do the basic stitch and make a scarf, but that’s about as far as I’ve gotten.  I do really enjoy it though!

i do like to knit.  i learned from coworkers during one of our share your hobby during lunch sessions.  i couldn’t follow them so i went out and bought the stitch ‘n bitch book and a few other books.  i didn’t realize how expensive a hobby it would end up being.  i saw this beautiful duvet on the cover of one of my books so i priced out the yarn.  the duvet was going to cost several hundred dollars in yarn.  i like to learn new projects so i’m constantly trying out new things.  let’s not even talk about the time i convinced myself that i could learn how to sew in two nights and make my own halloween costume.  i went out and bought a sewing machine but in the end the sewing machine sat in the box unopened.  with wedding planning, i’ve been concentrating most of my time and energy towards wedding project.  i even put my food blog on hold.

Beautiful sweater! I am a sporadic knitter. I used to knit a lot more- fair isle sweaters for the kids in the family, Cowichan sweaters for kids, adults, dolls, baby blankets and sweaters.

The reason I am sporadic is that I don’t enjoy it while I am doing it. I love the end results but I have to push myself to keep going  on something I don’t enjoy doing.

Wow, congratulations! I’ve never done an adult sweater, only baby-sized ones. I’m too impatient to knit the same project for that long. You should be really proud. 🙂

Oh my goodness that sweater is beautiful! And I knit, too…but like many others I’m strictly a scarf girl. That sweater is incredible though so maybe I’ll have to expand my horizons!

I’ve been knitting for 5 years. I spend every Wednesday at my local yarn store knitting with friends. I recently finished a cresent shaped shawl in DK weight. I’ve made a number of afghans for friends’ wedding. I have a closet full of cowls, scarves, and hats. I’m a hardcore knitter with an overflowing stash in our closet and elsewhere. I made my wedding shawl and wedding purse. The shawl’s in a worsted weight silk/wool blend yarn. I wasn’t addicted to lighter weight shawls until recently, so it was heavier. Yep, I’m a knitter indeed.

Like many PPs I am a sporadic knitter of tubes and squares, but can I just say that jalaamarie and carrieknitscake‘s creations are GORGEOUS! Thanks for posting pics–inspiration for becoming a much less sporadic knitter!

I am in love with that sweater- I wish I could knit.  I’m absolutely terrible at it.

Such a cute sweater! I’m currently working on a hoodie I’ve had in my knitting bag for 1 year or so… le sigh. It’ll probably get pushed aside because I’ve decided to knit clutches for my bridesmaids!

That’s beautiful!  I definitely wouldn’t have the patience for something like that.
