I knit. Does anyone else here knit? Or crochet?
Anyone a knitter here?
If I was I'd have at least ten more kitties running around the house.
Used to knit. But quit when hubby died and I had to support the kids.
I used to knit before my children grew up, but crocheted 50 or 60 items for the quilter's handicrafts table last spring. Seems there was a blue ribbon for a man's knitted vest one year half a lifetime ago. I love all the handicrafts and dressed all of us in knits and crocheted items. My favorite was a teal-colored fancy lace-crocheted dress for my daughter when she was about 4 years old and way too cute.
Later on, she let me know she didn't care for lace and to prove her point became a cop. hahahaha! She's still beautiful when she wants to be, though.
I don't knit but I found this at the Daily Mail and thought you knitters would get a kick out of this. It's amazing.
I love this quote of hers..
My husband suggested I could knit the Thanksgiving dinner this year and save us all the cooking

OMG. That's as bad as that talking big mouth bass.
I knit but can't follow patterns, can only knit in a straight line, lol. But everyone I know has a scarf! It's really relaxing and de-stresses me. I was taught when I was younger but then forgot about it and only took it up again recently, I re-taught myself watchign youtube vids. My mom crochets a lot but I've never been able to pick it up, no matter how many times she tries to show me how.
Sure you can ChloeP80:
Here's a practice lace crochet that if you can follow, you can crochet 95% of the other patterns out there which use the same basic 5 or 6 stitches:

Also, you can crochet this lace around the edge of a pillowcase, extending its life by 6 to 10 years in most cases. Crochet is not just another pretty face. It's practical for making sewn items last longer and look fabulous in the process.
And here's the (a) flower:
Here's Gwen Fisher's flower that goes with the lace she made. Looks like a real pretty necklace to be or very special pillowcase border:

Found at youtube: way to get free yarn for cool projects (Don't see why you couldn't just knit them too once you follow her instructions for extending the "free" yarn:
