I've just started knitting and am finishing up my 1st project, a skarf.

Anyone else from around here?

An Everett knitter here. I started knitting (with a scarf too) about a year and a half ago. Do you have something in mind for your next knitting project?

I'm knitting this

in a round currently and am on the waistband right now. It's coming out quite nicely too :)

What about you, what have you knit?

Those look handy...and in the round. It took me a year to try that.

Right now I'm finishing a pair of socks for my Dad. And I need to finish up DH's sweater. It needs a zipper, and I've been avoiding it. Funny thing is I've put zippers in sweaters before.

I love these, but I need to learn cableing first.

I'm glad to have found someone locally that knits!

I love the cabling on those wrist warmers. And cabling isn't that hard with an extra needle. My fourth project was a cabled sweater for DS1.

I did my first socks with Silver's tutorial - http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Start.htm. She has pictures for each stitch which really helped me.

It's good to know a fellow knitter in the area. It seems most WA knitters live around Seattle or Stanwood. Have you been to the Main Street Yarns in Mill Creek? They are having a 20% off everything sale on April 6 (anniversary sale). I'd like to take some knitting classes there, but it's kinda hard right now with a 2 month old.

:happydance: Hi all!!! Glad to see other knitters from WA. I met a wonderful lady at Michaels who told me about this website and thats how I learned to knit. Hopefully I will run across her to say thank you.
My first project was a baby blanket. Now I want to do the double sided heart hot pad but having problems. :heart:

Hello oceansgrl. :muah: Always good to see another knitter from around here. I wish you luck on the potholder. It looks like an intriguing project. What problems are you having? (I've never done that technique, but maybe I could help.)

Well I have never done double knitting and I have watched Amy's video over and over again and she says to take both colors to the back when knitting and to the front when purling and no matter what I do it doesn't come out right and I end up with the wrong color on the wrong side. If you know what to do please let me know. I left a post in the help section also hoping someone answers. :??

I don't have any real good suggestions to help you out. :shrug: From what I see, you are basically knitting two separate potholders with the color changes tying them together.

I'd suggest going to a local yarn shop and asking for help. Maybe by someone watching you, they can give you a few pointers. Mukilteo is suppose to have a really friendly shop. Or are you in the Lakewood farther south?

Sorry I don't have better answers. Hopefully someone will pop in with an answer on the help forum.

I'm a knitter from seattle. I recently learned how to knit and love it. I have knitted a few simple projects like scarfs and cowls, but what I have had a lot of fun with lately is just knitting swatches and learning new techniques like increases, decreases, cables and such. I have so many projects I plan on starting soon, but I need to get the right size needles, or the right yarn. If you have a free moment check out my blog to see what I am up to. The next projects I plan on doing are knitted bangles, scarves, leg warmers, hot water bottle cozy and twinkles shopping tunic. This should keep me busy for a while, problem is I keep finding new things I want to knit that I am not really progressing in any of these projects.

Hi Oceansgrl! Go to knit freedom.com/knitting-videos, you'll find quite a few videos including double knitting! I had the same problem with double knitting until I watched this video.
BTW...I live in Lake Stevens.
