« Just Another Day in the Country | Main | Smitten with Mittens! »

Friday, March 20, 2009



Have you knit anything with double-pointed needles yet? It takes a little while to get the hang of it, especially the first few rounds.

Love the look of the mittens. Hope you enjoy it!

Although I'm only a kitting wannabe/newbie I discovered that I am becoming a lover of the craft, or hobby, whichever it is. I love it! I think I could love it as much as quilting, but it's a premature statement, given that I haven't tried making anything yet, and can't until I learn how to do things WITH the knit and purl stitches which I have down pat. Some of the patterns are frightening. I don't know how one keeps from getting 'lost' or messing up but I expect I'll learn. :D
I'm working on forming a little knitting circle in my town like my sewing Bee that meets monthly. I could use some knitting support.


My all-time favorite craft that I cannot imagine ever living without is the one that I am currently interested in at any particular time.


Hmmm - I admire crafts and craftsy people very much - however, I'm seem to be challenged in that area. Piano and harp playing, baking, photography and blogging seem to take up most of my spare time. but I am still working on my scarf :)



Almost forgot reading!



PS - Those are gorgeous mittens!


I guess my favorite hobby is interior decorating. Craft-wise I'm all thumbs but I am learning to crochet and really am enjoying the cake decorating classes we learned about from Sarah. I admire anyone that can knit. I've tried and let's just say there were more holes than there was knitting. :)



I would have to say sewing in general. I dabble in knitting and in quilting but sew a lot of gift items and am always on the lookout for new ideas.
I loved your post about your trip through the countryside earlier this week.
Here in SC we plant our pansies in the fall and they last until the weather gets hot and they become leggy. Ours didn't do much this winter but they are beautiful right now.


My favorite at the present is basket making. I love working the reeds into a shape and then seeing it being used. There is just something about seeing sunshine on a new basket! I have tried to knit but just can't get used to two needles. Those mittens were beautiful and I'll be anxious to see your post about your class.


I like all three! If I had to prioritize them it would be quilting, crochet, and then knitting.
