Crochet/Knitting/Needlework

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Crochet, Knitting and over all Needlework thread!

 

We all know needlework can be addicting, time consuming and frustrating beyond belief... but it can also be rewarding, relaxing, and joyful when it all comes out right .

 

This is a place to talk about our obsessions, annoyances, successes and everything in between.

 

In here will be talk of:

  • Yarns (Oh, glorious yarn)
  • Techniques
  • Encouragement (Need that push to finish the darn thing?)
  • Patterns
  • Ideas
  • Successes (Show us!)
  • Failures (Getting 20 rows up and then giving up.)
  • Questions (Please be patient, maybe no one else knows either)

A Few Rules:

1. Do not ask someone to make something for you.

2. Do not try to sell your work in here.

3. Showing off your work: Links only. No Images Please. It's hard for people with slow computers to load the page when there are pictures.

4. Patterns: Make sure the pattern you are posting is free and not something that was paid for. We could get in trouble for stealing copyrighted stuff.

YAY!! A support group. (She said, cursing at the afghan that eats up all the yarn.) Thanks for getting this off the ground, Kanaye, and here's to a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and cheering!

*returns the toast, then sticks another skein on the spinning yule* Made by Mr. BD, of course. That old spice rack sees more action as a skein spinner than it ever did as a spice rack. xd.png

Yay!

 

I crochet and knit, in that order. I have a blanket going right now that I hope to finish in time to move into the dorm.

Ah, Welcome Klinneah. Is the blanket in crochet?

 

I keep trying to teach myself to knit. It isn't going do well. I can knit ok, but I can't purl.

 

Most of the problem is that my mother taught me left handed knitting.

xd.png I've just- literally within the past 24 hours- started to learn to crochet. I'm at a serious disadvantage because my teacher is right handed, where I am left handed... I'm only able to do the basic chain stitch right now dry.gif I also intend to learn to knit, and one day, make a replica of the 4th Doctor's scarf. Colors, length and all biggrin.gif

Hi, Klinneah! Glad we have yet another yarn addict to cry to.

 

And Dr. Paine! I'm also left-handed, and I"m teaching myself, using a very good guide. So if you get stuck, just holler, and I'll come running.

The blanket? One big crochet granny square. I'm also left-handed, but I learned to crochet and knit right-handed. It's easy, once you get the hang of it.

-waves knitting hook-

I have made about 3 hats and a scarf so far, but none except one have came out perfect. One strangely came apart at the top and one has a little hole in it. And the scarf was all in between.

If I had fewer interruptions, I bet I could get this blankie for Mr. BD done before March. As it stands, I won't. :|

I'm actually making my very first ever sweater, but it is too short.

 

I'm attempting to extend it... not going so well.

 

I have front, back, both sleeves and cowl. All together.

 

Lets just say, if I had made the front and back the proper length, all I would have to do is add about 3 inches of cuff on both sleeves and I'd be done.

 

I'm going to see my friend's grandmother tomorrow, hopefully she can help me figure it out.

Well my scarf has no protection against the wind, that's for sure.

I can only knit scarves and hats.

Knitter here. I've been knitting for a couple of years and I actually taught my mother to knit rather than the other way around! I've done scarves, hats, the occasional socks, and this Christmas I knitted a platypus shaped hot water bottle cover for a gift.

 

Anyone here on Ravelry? It's a great site knitting and crochet site, free but requires you to sign-up, and they have tons of patterns, yarn info, and help forums. http://www.ravelry.com/

I'm on Ravelry. I actually used a Moebius Cowl pattern there.

 

If you wanna look me up, I'm Kanaye44.

 

I should post some of my work here. I can't post the Moebius, cause foolishly, I never took a pic.

 

Hmm, which photo shall I chose? And I have to be sure to follow my own rule and post a link instead of a pic.

The top half is over the chair, but it looks exactly like the bottom. It's 4½ feet tall.

Kanaye, that looks like the blanket I'm making, except mine is white, yellow, and green.

Very cool color choices. Granny Square blankets are so easy.

 

I actually modified the pattern I had and made it so the top and the bottom were worked back and forth a bunch of rows, so it was more longer than wide.

 

I'm actually working on a teal And black one. I'm 16 rows up.

That's my blanket! *grins*

 

I've knit one thing and crocheted two, and all three were Doctor Who scarves!

I don't intend to be making any more scarves, but I do crochet the tails of my pompom mice.

I wish it was Friday so I could go out and buy some shiny green yarn so that I can make myself a Link hat. :3
