I'm from southeastern Michigan. I learned how to crochet when I was 9, and made a granny square poncho when I was 10! I also taught myself how to knit around that time, but I couldn't really get into it. A few years ago, I picked up the knitting needles again and haven't stopped. Crocheting really hurts my hands, but knitting is very relaxing. Tonight I am working on a Party Lace Scarf:

It is turning out beautifully.

My daughter lives in Destin Florida. I love the beach. I wouldn't mind living there.

Well, I didn't make it to the store to get the knitting needles and yarn for the mystery project. It sounds like soooo much fun, but raining plus cold equals arthritis ouch. So I worked on my loom tube scarf. Its about 7 feet now and ready to come off of the loom!! Yay!

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.....

Thanks! I'm using Patons Lace Sequin yarn in amber. It's a soft gold shade with a mohair finish and tiny gold sequins all over it.

Only THREE MINUTES until it's time for the East Coast New Year Celebration!

I think it's time for our first give-away!!!

Be patient with me, while I figure out how to do that online randomizer.
