I LOVE that Patons Lace Sequin yarn.

I'm in Kentucky near Land Between the Lakes area. Right now, I'm trying to keep up with all the messages, otherwise, I'm knitting a blanket from Vogue Knitting Stitchionary Vol 1, using pattern #146. I've been knitting for 5 years, needle tatting for 6, and crocheting for 32. My fiber art of choice at this point, knitting.

Me too, except when it comes to frogging! I started it about three times last night and ended up losing some yarn. But the results are definitely worth it!

Just kidding.

What fun and so appropriate given my love for technology. I'll be able to use it to show my girls at school some of those videos when we knit during lunch!
Congratulations! I really can't think of anyone who deserves it more. How are your girls doing with their knitting?

Crocheting really hurts my hands, but knitting is very relaxing. Tonight I am working on a Party Lace Scarf:

It is turning out beautifully.
Your scarf is beautiful! I crocheted from the time I was a teenager, off and on, and have made lots of crocheted afghans, some sweaters, other stuff, but it's hard on my hands. Knitting is much easier for me BUT I found an ergonomic crochet hook handle and with it I think I can do some crocheting again...if I ever finish a knit project or 3.

I just found the forums today and haven't thoroughly looked around, but does anyone else use looms or is everyone needles only? I'm starting with just a set of Knifty Knitter looms, but am enjoying it enough to start looking around at board looms for a tighter stitch and larger projects. I want to learn needles as well, but I've been following a lady on YouTube who also has arthritis and she said she can't use the needles as much as the looms anymore because it bothers her cervical spine. I have issues in my cervical and lumbar spine as well as hands and wrists. And on good days when the pain is managed well I'm usually painting.....
I've watched videos for loom knitting and it looks like I'd have a really hard time with using the hook thing or whatever it is. I think it requires more dexterity than my fingers possess.

Oooo....gosh, I bet you're right. Those tiny sequins might cause a few hiccups as well.

I'm from Iowa. I taught myself how to knit a few years ago and have been having fun with it ever since. I'm not a craftsy person by nature so it took me awhile to really get the hang of it but now I'm finally able to do more complex projects.

Too funny... actually, I'm afraid I'll lose my place in my knit shawl, so contemplating casting on a different project. I'm enjoying reading about everyone's projects!
