    There's a lot of folks looking for ways to learn frugal skills acc. to that thread, myself included. Mine are canning, knitting, darning, and a few others.

    Those of you that sew, knit and craft, are you finding the fabric stores, yarn shops and craft stores more/less busy and are you or are you hearing of people sewing, knit and crafting more due to the recession? Do you think THESE businesses are thriving more/less due to the downturn? Just...

    Yesterday I had the tv on (rare for me) and found on PBS a program all about knitting and crocheting. I feel embarassed about how excited I got!

    I know I'm probably the slowest knitter in the world, but I'm wondering if that's because I'm a newbie or if I'm just incompetent. :laugh: On average, how long does it take you to knit one, and how long have you been knitting? :knit:

    I've been cleaning out my closets and drawers and have a pile of old stretch leggings that aren't decent enough to donate and yet have a good bit of knit fabric that I hate to waste. I can sew the basics but am at a loss at what I can do with the knits. Any ideas or things I should be aware of...
