Learning

Well now that i am no longer really a newbie to thgis website, I am starting to learn what it has to offer.

Compared to what I have seen around here I am still a very amature knittier... Which is fine with me I will learn with time. I was the same with my artist drawing skills they did not happen right away either... I think being an artist has helped with my creativity in making my own patterns for dish clothes and wanting to try new things.

Well I guess this is all for know. I will write more in days to come. When I can actually find time to between working and home life.

A great site for beginning knitters

I stumbled over a nice little site for the 'New to knitting' crowd.  (there's also free patterns to entice the others).  Its a niftly little site that has little videos (FOR FREE).  I must've watched a dozen of them this morning.  Vicki Howell she's not, but she did manage to demystify Magic Loop knitting for me, as well as those pesky Kitchener and mattress stitching.  Check it out.  http://www.knittinghelp.com/     Best to you all.

One Off The Needles!

After frogging the first clog back to it's origins on Tuesday, I finaly finished it this morning.  I'm going to start the second today and take it with me when I go to California next week.  After all, it's going to end up there anyway. 

There's been some good work being shown by Justin and Ben.  Good going guys!  And JPaul.... I have to, ahemm, ask, is yours getting any bigger yet?

How 'bout the rest of you.  Making progress? Thoughts?  Do you hate me for getting you all into this???
