1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: I taught myself to knit! :) on: February 17, 2010 07:26:00 AM
Welcome to the world of knitting!!! congratulations on mastering this art 'self-taught'

I do believe that your cat secretly knows that s/he is the best dressed kitty in town!

I hope that your knitting brings you many hours of fun and pleasure... I am sure it will!!   Wink

Firstly: I love your work!!! both of these pieces are sooooo beautiful. I've just learnt to knit on 4 pins (DPs) and am looking forward to the time that I am brave enough to work with 2 or more colours. 
Secondly: Well done to your Mum for teaching you so well!

kool (n kozy all at the same time) Well done to you for getting back into your knitting again. 13 years is a long time to be away, and now you'll have your daughter asking you to teach her too! Look forward to seeing more of your projects on here Shocked)
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what'sin your bag? on: January 25, 2010 08:12:38 AM
I was just wondering what do we all have in our workbag?
For example, in mine I have tape measure, small crochet hook (handy for picking up dropped stitches quickly), an emery board (snagged nails can damage work, and if I'm in the middle of something I don't want the inconvenience of searching for one), scissors, tapestry needle, micropore tape (I tend to get splits and holes in my fingers if I spend too much time knitting on a regular basis - like the run up to Christmas - and this is a good protection), small balls of yarn to use as a contrast to mark end of rows etc, and of course my work which is currently my first ever pair of socks on four pins.
Also what is the average number of projects you would have on the go at any one time?
I love reading all your posts, and if I could turn out work to the same standard as some of you I'd be so proud!

I agree with Special KRJ, but would add that I always unpick the work before putting it down and walking away. Otherwise I would be put off picking it up againknowing that I have to start unpicking before I can get going again!
Maybe in my case I make mistakes because I can see the end of the project looming and I start getting impatient to see the finished article.  Huh
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / toy rat pattern? on: January 23, 2010 10:41:42 AM
Does anyone have a pattern they are willing to share for a very basic toy rat? I would be eternaly grateful if anyone could help out. Thank you.

I have just taken up knitting on four pins (today is the first day I've tried knitting a garment [socks]from the beginning as opposed to picking up stitches for the neck of a sweater) and I would love some instructions for your (fantastically wonderful) mittens. Do you think I could just knit them in a worsted weight to begin with, as I need to practice a few pairs first before buying a more expensive yarn?
Thanks for an inspirational post!  Kiss
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I need help with gloves and mittens on: January 23, 2010 09:57:27 AM
Hey PetStoreGirl, your pattern should tell you to increase stitches that will be used to make the thumb. If it doesn't maybe try another pattern? Good luck, look forward to seeing your finished project on here.   Kiss
