Hi Debbie, I'm new to knitting but really want to learn more! But my problem is, all of the "beginner" type projects aren't things I'm interested in, like straight scarves and dishclothes. Could you recommend a fun project that is easy to do?

Hi Debbie,

I've loved all of your books so far (and I second the request for a Happy Hookers 2!) and I was just wondering, in light of the new book, what technique did you find the most challenging to learn?

Hey Debbie!

I loved the happy hooker so so much.
I knit and crochet, though I find crocheting to be much easier for me.

Two questions, because I am among those who are hoping for a second crochet book.
First question: IF you were going to create a second book, what techniques would you want to introduce?
Second question: Which of the two main yarn crafts (knitting and crocheting) do you find easier?

Will not be returning to craftster until I can get my anxiety under control. Thank you for all the supportive people I have met here!

Hey Debbie!
I got your first book for my birthday... it made everything in the world of knitting make sense!
Anyway, I have one funky, interesting question, and one that's not so out there!
1. If you were any tool of the trade of knitting, what would you be?
2. What type of needles do you prefer? (you may have mentioned it in the first book but its been a long day) because i have bamboo needles from my first project, and metal and plastic-y needles that were my great-grandmother's and my grandma's that we found in my grandparent's basement

Hi Debbie,
I own almost all of your books, except this new one, I love laid back approach you've taken in writing these books. Your first book what the book I bought after I bought an unnamed book to teach myself and couldn't figure out the instruction.  I was able to instantly understand new techniques that didn't make sense in other books. 

I'm curious what knitters, artists or books inspire you?

Hey Debbie!

I used both your books, and taught myself how to knit and crochet. Can't thank you enough for that Cheesy 

I was wondering, Is there anything you regret leaving out of the first knitting book that may have ended up in the second one?

Thanks Cheesy

What's the most challenging thing you've ever taken on in your knitting adventures?

Hi Debbie,
Do you have a memory of a special project that gave you confidence and cemented your love of knitting for all time?

« Reply #18 on: November 17, 2010 07:31:08 AM »

I just started knitting with any seriousness last week and have yet to get any books.  So I guess my question is, how do you knit in the round with two circular needles instead of double-pointed needles?

I have another question to add:

Why did your book of men's projects address female knitters and not men?  My husband knits and is always very disappointed that the majority of books target women and not men even if they are full of men's patterns.

Sometimes you get to change the world, and other times the world changes you.
