Kunoni - All of knitting is knitting, purling, increasing and decreasing. With those skills, you can do anything!

Kunoni, I like the Knifty Knitters because I don't have to remember where I was if I get interrupted, and they are relatively toddler-proof. They are a good place to start. The loom that gets the most use is the hat loom. You can also buy them separately or in a set. They are great for TV projects.

I was 46 before I figured out crochet. Now I like it, and hope to learn more this year. Needle knitting is the hardest for me, mostly because as soon as I get a rhythm going, I have to stop to go do something else. As soon as my life is not as much of an "interrupt-a-thon", I hope to move beyond the knit stitch.  Cheesy

silverwing-LOL at #48- knit something.

lol, yeah, I can't knit.  Like at all. It's awful.  I got a cute little kit, and I've been trying, but so far not much luck.  I can crochet like a mad-woman, but needles just confound me, lol.

That's how I feel about crochet. And hooks. Cheesy

Ditto that. The two times I tried to learn to crochet I wound up with stitches lined up down the hook, like I was knitting. No idea how I did that  Cheesy

Crochet did not "click" for me until I could watch youtubes of the parts that confused me over and over until I got it. I don't know anyone who would have been patient enough to show me.  Cheesy

Speaking of crochet, does anyone know of a beginner-friendly pattern for an earflap hat? My ears are never, ever warm in the winter. I got frostbite on them when I was a dumb and fashionable teenager who did not like to wear hats. It only took one instance of frostbite to cure me of that silliness. Now they hurt whenever it gets cold outside.  Roll Eyes
Added to list:
30. Make a crochet hat with earflaps.

soorawn, that reminds me! I need to try that.
31. Make something with the Tunisian crochet hook that found its way home with me last fall.

Yeah, I have a hard time with the foundation row and then, just the general number of stitches. At least when you're knitting, all of your stitches are on the needles.

So, since everyone ELSE is doing it, I thought I'd join in the fun.  My first finished project for 2011:

3. Thumbless Mittens for my son - posted here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368557.0

They're kind of the most ridiculous things EVER.  But, they keep his hands warm.. just in time for our 60 degree weekend.

I've also finished up 10 dryer balls (#37) and started my Hemlock Ring Blanket (#23) and the fingerless gloves for our postman (#40).

Happy new year everyone! Grin I can't wait to start with my list tomorrow, I will admit that I have started gathering everything and slightly started projects, only because if I have something already started then it will force me to finish it and again Happy New Year everyone! Cheesy hope you all complete all of the projects that you want to complete this year! Smiley

but I don't wanna Tongue  I like crafts where I can see myself progressing, and I can never tell the difference between one row and another while knitting, so it bores me.


I wanna do a mini list. Here's my january list:

1. large-ish plush to finish up flannel scraps- ready to sew
2. 2 plushies for dad's birthday
3. an ear-flap hat

Yep, down the handle, as if it were a knitting needle. My mom got a good laugh at it when I told her. Little did I know I was rocking Tunisian crochet. Totally intentional  Cheesy

lapoli- those mitts are awesome!

Happy New Year everyone!
