Spinning and Some True Friends

From

Fair Isle and stitch counts for various patterns

I'm basically a beginner to knitting but am really enjoying it. One of my issues with any craft is to find a way of making practical things, not just pretty things that will sit on a dresser or hang on a wall.

Infinity Knitting Unravel commercial

I'm sure this commercial is much more meaningful to knitters than it is to a non-knitter who is in the market for obscenely expensive cars.
