    Hello Everyone! my mother has the I Love You Baby pattern book and she wants to make the Magic for Minors Sacque on page 11. unfortunately, her book is so old and worn that the beginning section on the left is unreadable. I can find images of this pattern, but can't find the actual pattern...

    I am going to list quite a few knitting books on Ebay, and I thought I would check here to see if anyone was interested beforehand. I don't want to take the time to make a list of authors, titles, etc if there is no interest in them. Some of the books were expensive, some weren't. I am...

    Well I was productive recently and went through my stash and decided I could probably part with some of my craft stuff. About 200 leaflets, booklets, etc. Well that WAS the plan. I recently acquired another HUGE stash that came from a estate. Over 800 pieces. I counted them :) I managed to get...

    Hello Fellow Knitters I have been on the internet trying to find a simple, knit/purl, on two straight needles baby hat to knit for charity. I can't seem to find one. I don't want a hat with a point - just a cute hat. Anyone have any sites that might have what I'm looking for? Thanks everyone!

    A woman at my knitting group has been learning, and she brought it all types of fibers that she's spinning into yarn. It seems so neat but also pretty labor intense too. It's probably relaxing (and rewarding!) to do, but I guess if I were going to go to all that trouble, I'd want to know that I...

    I just joined a knitting group with my mother 2 weeks ago. We meet at the library on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month. I am definitely the least experienced, and while everyone is really nice (so far, have only been to 1 meeting LOL), it's still pretty intimidating. So does anyone else...

    ~AKA, my first knitted project. :D It took two evenings to make it and by the second evening my hands were aching and cramping. You serious knitters must have some amazing hand strength! Anyway, everything I've heard about starting knitting is true. I am hooked! :knit:I've been thinking about...

    I promised myself I was going to improve my knitting skills in 2010. I got a DVD with step-by-steps to brush up on the basics, and I signed up for a class to learn how to knit the fingerless mittens at a local yarn shop. I skimmed through the DVD last night and noticed it demonstrates both the...

    Hey all! I decided that I'd start doing some knitting while we're on Christmas vacation. I've done some a really long time ago, but it's been longer than I can remember so I'm in need of help as far as getting started again. I'd like to do at least some scarfs and try my hand at some cabled...

    I bought some yarn at Hobby Lobby yesterday. It's Baby Bee Peach Fuzz (sweet pea). It's very fine and I am using the purple long loom, 18 pegs on each side. Now, I've started with two strands of the yarn, but it's way too fine. It leaves too big of holes. How do you do the baby afghans...
