Hi all. I'm new to the forum. I've been lurking for awhile now & figured I might as well register. LOL.
I've been knitting for about a year and a half now. I have a Booga Bag on the needles now. I finished a baby blanket this past weekend. I'm working on another baby blanket, but this time I'm crocheting it.
I'm looking forward to meeting people here who understand the yarn addiction.
I'm pretty new to knitting--I haven't done it in years, but I've picked it up again, primarily because this site is so user-friendly. I do have a question (and pardon my ignorance): I've been knitting a scarf using the English method, and am ready to bind off which I've already done to the last loop. What do I do with the last loop to keep it from unraveling? Thanks!!
I'm brand new to knitting and attempting to make some wool soakers (practicing on acrylic yarn though) for my soon to be born daughter (well, early July hopefully). I just have a question that I'm going to try find in the previous threads. I think everytime I pearl a row, I somehow increase the number of stitches. The pattern I'm doing calls for every other row to be pearled, so one side of my piece is getting wider and wider, but the other side is staying the same size. Any ideas or words of wisdom?
i'm a newbie to this knitting craze. i'm taking a knitting class at the YMCA. plus i have this cool cd set. i love it. i want to knit so many things i don't know where to start. i'm a basic starter stitcher so i don't know too many stitches, but with everyone's help i will be an expert soon. i do many other crafts too many to mention. so anyone who wants to email me or talk to me please do. i can use all the advice i can get.
I saw a beautiful necklace at a local store. It was made with I-chord stitch. I have the little machine that does i-chord. I have tried to do it with the machine and just stiching but their sample is pretty dense, it looks like they inserted something inside the i-chord so it is more dense and it looks a lot better, more sturdy as oposed to loose. Anyone knows how it was done? It has a large bead in the middle, it had shinny yarn... beautiful...
hi. I just found this site and already have found a solution to a knitting problem I have had with a particular pattern for years. I was looking for beginner how-to's for a needlecraft class I will be teaching at a local school in the fall. I realized I did not have any beginner books any more as the last time I was a beginner or taught another beginner was over 20 years ago. LOL I looked at the videos and will be getting those for my class. The class will be grades k-12.
I am a dsahm of 12 children. One of my kids has 3 legs, one has 6 feet, and one is human.
Sorry about that. I lost my introductory email. Anyway, I learned from this website last summer how to knit. It is fabulous and I absolutely love knitting. Amy, you have done a wonderful job with this website and its friendliness shows through. Look forward to meeting lots of knitters and mommys too!
