I'm a Longer Islander also..Garden City. I post here from time to time and thought I'd log in today and see who is knitting here on LI too! What projects are you working on? I'm preparing for a vendor fair later this month. In addition to that, I'm currently knitting samples for the Plymouth Yarn Company...Where do you buy your yarn? Do you have a special yarn company you like using? Hope to hear from you soon. Have a happy knitting day!
Happy to fulfill a passion I have always had..the love of creating through the gifts I have been given...sharing & learning as much as I can..
My sister and I decided to teach ourselves to knit about 2 weeks ago, so far a couple of scarves.
so far i taught myself the basics, yarn over, purl2 together, cables and what not. still trying out continental, english and a bit of a blend. i want to stay flexible if one suits better than another.
i might have jumped a bit too fast, my hands are getting used to it still; i also have a physical day job that is very heavy this time of year! and massage therapist part time. i think i like working with my hands.
