61  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Naughty Knits Eyepatch? on: August 04, 2008 11:19:53 AM
I've never made the eyepatch but I have made loads of the nipple tassels (pasties) and I've just finished the elbow length gloves that fasten with ribbon.

I just need to find the right ribbon for them now...

I've just fallen in love with the octopus! I think I've found my new project!
I was trying to do a creature called Speck from a book called Plush You by Kirsten Rask.

Not entirely sure I understand what it's telling me to do though so I might start with the gorgeous octopus instead

Thanks for showing me that

Just been trying with my right hand, it seems to be going OK. I know what you mean about the death grip though! I'm having to really keep an eye on my tension at the moment as it keeps getting really tight as I concentrate on what the hook is doing.

What kind of thing do you recommend for a complete novice? I've got my eye on a ball shaped creature but I was wondering if I should start with simple flat shapes like I did when I learnt to knit.

Any ideas?

I want to try my hand at some amigurumi - I'm feeling ambitious!

Hello everyone!

I've decided this summer to learn to crochet. Don't have a clue where to start.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a good tutorial?

Oh, and I'm left handed too - just to make things more interesting!

Thanks   Smiley
