    Question What's on your needles?

    I was determined to learn to purl, and I did! :woohoo:

    I am making a snowflake patterned dishcloth:

    And I'm about to start this basketweave scarf: (that will be for the January needle arts challenge, so I'll wait until Thurs. to start it)

    Wow! Good for you! I wouldn't know the first thing about making that dishcloth. I wish I knew somebody that could show me firsthand, but I'm sure that's not going to happen.

    If you want to learn to knit, you can try www.knittinghelp.com

    My mom knits, but she lives 400+ miles away, so when she visits (about once or twice a year) she can show me things, but for the most part I used www.knittinghelp.com

    The videos there are great.

    Michelle, those girls are so cute. They have truly grown into young ladies. You must be very proud of them.

    WTG on learning to purl. Can't wait to see your dishcloth once it's done.

    Thanks, CJ. I am very proud of them

    If you look to the right of Lauren's head, just above it, you may be able to see one of the many ornaments (star) that I bought from you. I have at least 7 of them on there now (and that's just a quick glance...there are probably a lot more )

    WTG!!! I had a heck of a time with purling because the books I was using at the time (before I discovered the videos at Knittinghelp.com) failed to mention that the working yarn not only had to be in the front, but come between the two needles rather than over. I kept making yarn overs I didn't mean too. Once I got that and I realized that purling was just knitting from the back it was MUCH easier. Can't wait to see your snowflake dishcloth

    Me, I'm still plugging away at the one-row handspun scarf (not done in handspun, but Lionbrand chenille lol).

    WTG on the purling!

    How glad am I that my wonderful mother taught me how to knit (and purl) when I was 9 years old! She's a gem!

    I actually HAVE on needles, a children's blanket for donation to sick/displaced kids.

    But I am anxious to start a sweater I wanna make dh, from a cotton/acrylic blend.

    I am working on a 360-st cast on scarf for my brother, a wave-pattern scarf for my brother-in-law, and I just learned to crochet! I've picked out some yarn and a gorgeous blanket for my mom. I'm pacing myself on that, though, because I need to get those scarves done!!

    Let's see....it looks like I have more crocheting going on than knitting right now. I have a scrap afghan (or two) in the works right now. I really need to get those done so I can use up these scraps, thus clearing some space in my office!

    I'm knitting a purse out of one long fabric strip. No pattern. I'm winging it. The fabric is so butt ugly I'm gonna dye it after I'm done putting it all together.

    Very cool! I've got nothing on my needles, as I'm working on a quilt for my mother's birthday, but I liked looking at what you'll be making!

    Right now I have a mitt on my needles. It looks like a mitt I think. It's the first one I've made and I think I've made a couple mistakes, however it does look something like a mitt. Can't wait until I finish it and get it sewn to see if it will fit my hand.
