Thread: Anyone knitting? Whatcha makin'?

  1. #21
    Anyone ever do any loom knitting? Just trying out the Knifty Knitter type looms. Made a scarf and dishcloth. Hard to get my tension right. Always have my stitches too tight. I crochet too tightly too.

    I did some loom knitting several years ago; made some hats, scarves, even several pairs of mittens. I will likely pick it back up someday, but right now my copious free time (LOL) is consumed with learning and practicing knitting with needles, which I find to be super meditative!

    I just decided to try to learn knitting on my own. It's kind of hard. I can cast on real good though! The actual knit stitch...still working on it.

    I can crochet very well but not so good with knitting. Someday I will knit myself a pair of awesome, funky socks. Socks in the store are not awesome enough or funky enough!

    Hi knitters! I've been knitting for about six years now, and I've always got tons of stuff on the needles. Right now its socks for my boyfriend, a sweater in mohair, and a laceweight shawl.

    Congratulations for trying on your own. It is much easier learning with a teacher. You might try some tutorials on YouTube, though.
    I'm glad I learned to knit first before I learned to crochet. Since crochet is quicker and also easier to tear out and correct mistakes, I probably would've been lazy and kept on with the crochet. I do like the looks of knitted items better, though, than crocheted items. I'm sticking with simple small items like dish cloths right now, although I have knitted sweaters in the past.
    Follow the yellow brick road.

    I have the bad habit of starting many things that I don't finish for a long time. Lately I was focusing on a pair of sweaters, one for me and one for a friend (they don't match). But I'm taking a break right now as an infection heals on my finger - it's right on the place that I hold the yarn, so frustrating!!

    I'm also working on a blanket, one strip at a time. Each strip is a different color and a different stitch pattern. I made one a few years ago, here it is:

    I'm crocheting baby hats. I bought a pattern the other day for a cute little hat with a brim that is adorable when finished.

    It's great seeing this post at the top of the crafts forum. I feel right at home!

    Right now I've got two things on the needles. I'm working on Nymphalidea, a very pretty shawl from the latest Knitty issue. I'm also doing a pair of Kalajoki socks in blue for the Sock Knitters Anonymous and Solid Socks Ravelry groups knit-a-longs for October.

    I hope my newest habit (Turking) doesn't cut into my knitting time too much!

    We just moved and all my knitting stuff was packed up. I don't know why I thought going more than 30 days without knitting wouldn't drive me crazy! I'm looking forward to picking it up again. I do a lot of wool diaper covers. But I've been wanting to do some stuffed animals for my daughter. I started out only crocheting and refusing to knit, but now that I've really picked up knitting, I actually prefer it to crocheting.
