Back again...

So, I'm back...not that I ever held a great pressence on this site or anything to begin with, but I joined about 2 years ago when I feel deeply in-love with knitting.

PS...

PS...this is the hat, it's pretty cool and very easy!  I love it!

Crochet Anyone?

Now, I know that I can probably find this online in 6.5 seconds, and I just might as soon as I am done posting this entry.  However, the hat that I just finished instructs me to "single crochet" around the edge in a contrasting color...now I have the contrasting color, and UPS is bringing me a big box of knitting supplies (and crochet hooks) this afternoon...but can anyone tell me (or direct me towards an priceless resource that can tell me) how I might go about this "single crochet"?  Clearly I am a crochet virgin!  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks guys!

Dare I...?

So, my present collection of projects in progress is about to dissapear.  As I am going to be spening Labor Day at a secluded lake house I can't think of anything better to do than gather supplies to start a new project!  For some reason I have this voice in my head telling me to make a Cable Scarf...and it is a forcefull voice!

Is this a dumb idea for a new knitter?  How hard (honestly) is this endevor going to be?  I really have the burning desire to try it!  Does anyone have any cool basic Cable-Scarf patterns?  Resources?

Chitter Chatter

Does anyone ever use the chat feature?  Just wondering...

Trauma!

So I have been wanting to make this really cute ear flap hat...I get it, perhaps a little to ambitious for my firstknitting in the round project!  But I have now trashed two tries for coming out twisted...and the third is twisted yet again.  I would hate to have to abort this attempt as well!  I decided (perhaps later that I should have) to come to the source of all wisdom and see if there was anything that could be done...?  Can I salvage this twisted hat?

 ...at least I have a half finished scarf to dejectedly work on.

I must be blind...

Don't laugh...but could someone please tell me how to update my profile...I am sure it's some link staring me right in the face, but I haven't had lunch yet and I'm losing my mind!

The boy wants a hat...

Whatever he wants, he gets...and the boy(friend) wants a hat!  Now, I am knew to kintting and quite timid at that.  I have only done/tought myself the simple kint stich.  Any suggestions for a cool/sexy hat that is easy to comprehend/learn how to do?  Any help would be greatly appreciated...there is a 40% off sale at my LYS tonight!

Scarf #1 down...

Hey everyone, I am thrilled to announce that I just finished my very first sacrf!  ...I think it turned out pretty well for having basically taught myself. 

Needles to say, I have begun yet another scarf (I'll do one more before branching out into something more complicated, any suggestions?).  I found that I didn't know what to do with my hands for the three days between projects.  I am truly obssesed! 

A word of thanks to everyone for thier kind advice, I am finding this site to be a priceless resource!  

...Which brings me to my next question....
