Does any one else Crochet or Knit
I know but it's hard to comprehend starting with absolutly nothing, might buy Doodle Stitching by Aimee Ray.
I did one embroidery piece in primary school, I loved it. I made one of those lame things that goes over the back of an armchair, but it looked good
I like to crochet simple quick projects and have a few projects for left over skeins you may have. House decor items mostly. Pillow covers, table covers and kitchen towels. Mostly left overs from scarf and afghan projects.
I picked up two embroidery hoops from the thrift store a few weeks ago for .95 cents each. They had knitting needles, but I don't knit.
I make pillow covers from cotton skeins and use older pillows to stuff them. They look new again and sometimes I stuff two small pillows inside one cover to get a nice big one out of two old worn out ones.
I'll scan some stuff in for you, I found my old embroidery photocopied sheets from back when in college they taught us how to.
BUT ITS A PRETTY BOOK! I know french knot, chain stitch and satin stitch and obviously running and cross stitches I like having books for these things and I like her work and i like buying stuff haha.
Ok well if you can't be dissuaded. Plus you know already all you need to know. I'm just all for originality.
I think I'm buying the book more for her work lol
Tilleke Schwarz is better.
I've been crocheting for about a year. I'm not totally an expert at it yet, but I managed to make a cute scarf for my fiance.
I wish you guys all lived in Scotland and we could have a weekly knitting / crochet group!
I taught myself to knit because I couldn't find another left handed knitter! I can knit and purl but now I want to know how to knit in the round to make some fingerless gloves! I can't find anything that explains how to do it! I want to be able to knit my own sweaters on day. I want to learn crochet. I used to do it, but it left me. I bought some hooks and I have scads of yarn so, I guess I will teach myself that too!
here's a link to a cool site that shows how to do crochet stitches and other crochet things and also, knitting stitches and other knitting things
I know its UK but they do it the same way we do!!
We don't quite... Like a dc for us is an sc for you. and a slip stitch for you is an 'sc OR a slipstitch' for us, which is completely ridiculous. I'd seriously reccomend learning American.
I can't follow patterns well at all!
Cat I wished I liked in Scotland full stop, I'm part Scottish! We used to go to Scotland all the time when I was little. A knitting group would be so much fun hahaha
i crochet and knit but i like crocheting better....and i also cant follow patterns, i have to figure it out on my own if i ever want to make anything xP
