Nope that caterpillar took it and ran!!!
I've never had any lessons in crochet or knit, but must say I am quite exceptional at the crochet and hope to accomplish the same with the knit. I do know that learning to knit with the help of utube is much easier than just trying to read and look at still pics which is how I learned to crochet.
If you are interested in trying again I highly recommend utube Knitting for Dummies!!!
Well, I must agree with you on your being quite exceptional with your crochet!! You make beautiful crocheted things. And it looks like you really enjoy making them.
I'm not interested at the moment in learning to knit. Quilting and tatting keeps my hands pretty busy.
I would love to quilt and have no idea how or what tatting is so please post something. I have a quilt that my grandmother made for me that is hand sewn and tied and it is adorable in pink and blue & white. Tatting, must go check it out!
Just keep at it and it will work out for you. I used the tutorials on You Tube for all the info on knitting, better almost than taking a class. Course it also helped that I have been crocheting for 40 + years so can read the patterns.
So what are you working on? I just finished another breast cancer doily and am working on the crinolines. Need to start making angels soon!
I am working on a crochet pattern from an older Vanna White book called Chenille Stripes.
On the tatting projects, I am still practicing. I can do the double stitch and picot, but am having trouble continuing on after I make the first circle. I can't figure out how to pick up the thread and continue to make more circles etc...
