 Smiley I think I should join this. I'm finishing some fingerless glove/armwarmers and am actually in the middle of making a stockinette stitch afghan in 6" squares.  This will keep me motivated.  Maybe altering the different stitches in the squares will keep the afghan from becoming tedious.

Coolbeans, I'm glad to hear you've made some progress. Awesome! And welcome aboard, elizajane - glad to have you with us!

So.... you ladies want to do another square, eh? I've been quite obsessed with seed stitch lately - how about that? It's easy! Here's a picture and directions for seed stitch from about.com. You have to be able to knit and purl, but that's it. Nothing too complicated.

Let's do this last square, and then we'll move onto a short & easy pattern. How 'bout everyone try to get their squares done by the 29th? That gives everyone a little over 2 weeks to try and squeeze it in. Sound good?

It's also great not to be alone in a project

I wanna join! It would be a great way to use all of my excess yarn. I only know the basic garter (purl and knit) and s.s. YAY!  Grin

Hi, I'd like to join in for this: I do a lot of crochet, but not much knitting. I know the basic knit & purl but I need practice on new stitches - the hardest thing for me is keeping track of the numbers. (seems like I count and recount, and still often end a row with a different number of stitches than I started out with...)  I think I do better when I don't have the TV on ...  soon as somebody says a number I lose track of what I'm doing!

So I've started a scarf with the intention of doing the 'different stitches separated by some rows of garter' thing. My first segment was 'seafoam stitch', now I'm getting ready to start with the 'seed stitch'.

Hey, I made bobbles! My first ever bobbles!
I figured out the directions from here:
There's a little video on there, too, which I watched about five times and made notes from.
On this same page is another pattern & video for the 'Drop Stitch' which I put on my scarf right after the bobble row. I love this stitch. Easy, lacy and fast. She said it was good for using novelty yarns, so this may be what I use for my next scarf if I find any great yarns that I want to showcase.

Hello everyone, I am a little late, I think, but I would like to get in on tihs knitalong. I have been crocheting for years and just a month or so back decided to teach myself to knit. Which, I must say, has been an entertaining if not frustrating challenge. I am proficent in the long tailed cast on, and knitting and last week figured out, finally, how to purl correctly, which was cause for celebration since I was having a terrible time figuring it out. I am left handed which means I prefer the continental style of holding the yarn (in the left hand) which is probably much of the reason why purling was such a pill for me to master.

I have been following this thread for a few days now after someone from a recipe site forum I frequent suggested the site. I had started a scarf in a bit of old scrap synthetic yarn I had lying around....blaze orange... how i managed to acquire blaze orange yarn I will never know, and was just doing a real plain ribbed style. I decided after a foot of doing that to rip it out back to the beginning and do what someone suggested which is to SS for 10 rows then do a pattern for 20 then SS again and repeat. That is a simpy fabulous idea! Cheesy I can't bring myself to do squares, I hate doing squares in crocheting so already have a biased opinion of them. Smiley

Anyway now that I am babbling mindlessly, I would like to join in, I love seeing what everyone has done so far, once I get this next section done, I will take a pic and attempt to post it for all to snicker at. Tongue Thus far I have done a real basic but nice divided boxes stitch and now I am trying to do a small fountain stitch. I tried to do a vertical weave but apparently I did not learn how to count in Kindergarten and I changed my mind and went to a diferent pattern. Once I have figured out that 2 comes after 1 and not 3 I will try it again.   Grin

Wow, long first post.

Anyway, good luck everyone and I have loved what I have seen so far. They all look lovely.

Knitting is Knourishment Cheesy

Hi Everyone,

You can DEFINITELY do the Sophie.  I just finsihed felting my first.  The bottom is garter stitch which is knit everyrow, and then you pick up stitches and then you just knit in the round.  SUPER EASY!!!

Join the Sophie Knitalong.  I'll be posting my picture tomorrow after it dries.

It's gorgeous!@!!!

OK, I think I'm about done with this scarf, it's getting pretty long. I've enjoyed this project so much! I've learned how to increase, decrease, put loops back on the needle after frogging, do all these different stitches, and I'm much more comfortable with purling. I need some advice, though -  the edges of this thing are very wavy and uneven. Any suggestions on what to do about it? I can fold the edges under and have it look pretty good, but how do I attach/sew/align/cover the back? Should I just roll it up and keep it for reference, or can it still be made into a decent-looking scarf somehow?
