I don't doubt it

I think Lion Brand has some patterns for animals on their site; you could maybe knit a couple for the boys using the yarn they picked out...

Lindaknits,

I am knitting a Throw that sounds exactly like the one you are knitting.

My pattern is not from Dragon Pine Designs. Did you find your pattern in a book?

I found mine in a book at Borders Bookstore. Title of book is "the yarn girls guide to simple knits. Authors are, Julie Carles and Jordan Jacobs.

I am not finished with mine yet, however, i have enjoyed knitting it with all the different yarns.

Would love to see a picture of your Throw when you are finished.

Anne from Michigan

Sorry it took me so long to reply to your question benniesma, been busy with Christmas things. I'm from the Rochester area and right now it isn't as cold as it was the last time I posted! :P

I am so happy I found this place. I've been lurking for a few weeks, and decided if I was going to stick around, I might as well make my presence known. Everyone here seems so helpful and, well, fun. I suppose introductions are in order... I'm a relatively new knitter (began this August), but I realized right away I loved it. I'm rapidly becoming obsessed with the craft (to the point that I decided to knit EVERYONE Christmas gifts.). Anyway, can't wait to get to know you all better.

Hi There!
I've been lurking on the site for a few weeks. Just got back into knitting after over 20 years (learned from a book, first project a sweater, got to the sleeves and didn't finish). I've learned SO much from this site and the videos. Thanky you Amy! My favorite thing I've learned? Magic Loop. My stitches have vastly improved with circulars for some reason. Still way too tight...but that's for another topic forum. Great to meet everyone! Paula aka kaysdaughter

I'm just introducing myself.
I'm Jody. I live in the Minneapolis area with hubby and 3 kids (one is moving to Austin TX next month with his girlfriend :rollseyes: )
My mom taught me to knit many, many, many years ago. I just decided to start knitting again. I learned how using the american way of knitting but with this sites videos I have successfully switched to the continental way. Mom also taught me to cast on but I've searched and searched but I'm unable to find anything published on how I cast on. I'm a little confused which cast on method to use and when.
I made my brother a scarf for christmas. I just made a dishcloth to try out continental knitting. Now I'm going to make another scarf for my hubby.
I'm very excited to add knitting to my list of fiber related hobbies. I sew, quilt and crochet.
