1  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Re:CC Times Article - Knitting in school on: February 12, 2004 03:33:09 PM
I wish they had taught us to knit when I was in elementary school.  It would have been much more fulfilling than the time we spent in the "computer" lab drawing things on an Apple IIe.

Kids really like these sort of mesmerizing things.  I once worked at an inner-city kid summer camp and we took them on a field trip to this yoga compound in the suburbs.  Now these were city kids, and they loved every moment of it, they were so quiet and calm, you could hear a pin drop.
2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re:Stitch 'n Bitch Projects on: January 29, 2004 06:15:52 PM
It's kinda difficult to explain in a post, but you just sorta start knitting with the next color.  Don't tie the ends together, that would look funny.  What you do is leave some tail on the yarns and weave the ends in later.  Like I said, hard to describe, easy to do.  You just want to make sure to avoid holes in your knitting.  You may not even need to break the yarn if your only knitting for a few stitches in another color.  What you'd do here is pick up the new color and knit with it while carrrying the old yarn behind your work.  Check out the back of a fair isle sweater to get an idea or ask google image search to help you.

That was probably no help at all, sorry.

Allison at Circles may just as well be my hero.  I probably drive her nuts, but I love to just hang out there and knit away.  There's a group that meets on Saturday nights that meets at Circles and then moves on to knitting at Doyle's, I haven't made it yet, but I hope to this weekend.  Knitting and drinking is one of my favorite things.
