Now... if you want to talk knitting.  Forget it.  Can't do it.  Stopped trying.  I am a lost cause!  I take my rug and hook to the knitting parties and sit in the corner  Embarrassed

I used to think the same way. It is a lot easier than you think it is though! There are a lot of different methods for learning, it all boils down to learning it using a method that works for you.

Lovin' the projects being posted...baby things...=]
I've been working on a few things, too:

for the granddaughter!


a tea wallet, my own crazy design and from stash items.

a proper granny blouse... Cheesy a trial of an easy pattern...I'll find some other fabric to make up another.

Here is the swap items I knit up for the last swap I did, well, you can see them here:

cup/mug cozies and a scarf...=]

Keep trying new things, learning to knit or for me, to sew, just takes time and effort!  I couldn't knit 3-4 years ago and didn't think I would ever learn!  This old dog does learn new tricks!  Roll Eyes

nice!  Can flannel be used to make bibs?  I have lots of flannel...

A granny blouse to me has to have sleeves! Cheesy  No matter how many push ups or triceps curls I do, I can't get rid of my old lady batwings! Cheesy  Sleeves are the only option!

I learned how to crochet after years of knitting...I sort of had to relearn both!  And, I am still learning...I found that having a live person show me was the best way to learn...I am lucky to have a crocheter as a coworker and friend!

You crack me up! LOL!

I have tried knitting. I think I understand the method okay...but the needles I chose are crap and my yarn just keeps sliding off and I gave up trying. Maybe someday I will get some different needles and give it another go.

 Cheesy LoL, alwaysinmyroom!  I was thinking the delicate rose fabric was granny-like, but I think you're right!

I think flannel can be used for bibs, I've got a bit leftover from cutting a flannel robe(ready to sew this weekend) and hope to make a receiving blanket or two from it..then cutting squares to make a quilt from the leftovers.  A lady at the quilt meeting this week handed me a large cut of yellow double knit and it will be the backing! =]

That's because those exercises work on the front of your arms. I am slowly working on mine - the best way to get rid of them (according to Google) is to raise your arm over your head, using the other hand to steady your elbow, keeping your arm against your ear. Then you bend your arm down to behind your back, keeping your arm against your ear. I remember to do it daily by doing one or two reps every time my yarn goes taut and I need to flip some more off the ball. Might not work as well if you work with centre pull balls, but it's working for me  Grin

ooo--exercise with yarn! Sounds more fun than what I do...

Actually, I lift weights with a trainer 3 times a week...we do one similar to what you described only with about 45 pounds of weight... Wink

I think the rose print is lovely...and I love that you got free fabric!

Thank You all for the compliments about the knit puppy  Kiss

kwiltykate - Lots of may babies huh? My niece is due in May, someone in this craft-a-long said that their best friend's baby was due then...I am sure I am missing some other one. I have only seen May on here too, no other dates. Something in the atmosphere?  Cheesy

v3nu5 - It's slightly understuffed to make it extra squeezable!  Wink  Try out the pattern, I guarantee it is simpler than you think it is. If you try it and you run into any issues then just send me a message and I am sure I could help you. They have a kitten, lamb, puppy, bear, bunny, lion(am I missing one?) Just go onto lionbrand.com and type in "sock critter".

astormorray - I have always admired the lion pattern and I LOVE your version(saw it on Ravelry originally). SO cute  Grin  I just don't have much patience for so much repetition I guess. And the ear issue, at least my mod made it so I had to knit less! Though I wish I knew about the tail earlier, then I would have saved myself a lot of work I am sure. I plan on making all of the sock critters down the line. Especially the lamb(for myself), so maybe the lion will be next. Though the lamb is on my 50 projects list, so maybe I should stick to the list...or maybe something will suddenly find itself bumped off the list in a mysterious way... Cool

alwaysinmyroom - The bib I did for my 50 projects was flannel. Worked out really good. I believe it is a great choice. It absorbs spills well and because of it's texture is more likely to catch falling debris.
