I started a baby sweater from some leftover yarn. I hope I have enough of one color to finish it. If I don't, I'll make the cuffs and button ribbing out of a contrasting color, I guess.

We can DO THIS!!! This is our year!!!

I feel the same way about my knitting, JENNILEE27. I always have it with me, so try to have some small projects going at all times--something portable. The bigger projects are more difficult to carry around.

My mom wanted me to crochet her a cape years ago. I never finished it due to other things going on. So, this past Christmas (20 years later) I made a cape for my mom. It took over a month to do, but it was beautiful and she loved it. I had to change the pattern a bit to make it one that she would wear and that would cover her bottom. Crocheting has been therapeutic for me.

I just finished two afghans (I added minky fur to the back of one and swirl fur to the back of the other!) I also made matching throw pillows. I crochet. Learned to knit few years back but prefer crocheting. I find if I keep my hands busy, I eat way less! Plus crocheting in front of the TV is better then eating!

Hello fellow knitters and crocheters! I've been crocheting for about 25 yrs. I only learned how to knit a few years ago and I haven't done it very much. One of my goals this year is to crochet an afghan for my step-daughter who is currently deployed.

A nice anniversary trip is a good incentive to get the weight off. I like to mix up a couple of projects, but if I get too many going I lose momentum and that's not good.

I'm working up more cotton dishcloths (size 8 needles) and some socks (size 2) but would like to start a bigger project soon.

Hi...am new here. I am an "intermediate" knitter and usually have at least 3-4 projects going at a time. I need to mix it up to give my hands a break from the same size needle and to give my brain a break from the same pattern. If anyone is on Ravelry, I'm K-Lo over there.

I am a short person looking to lose 12 pounds over the next three months. I am 60 years old and will be celebrating my 30th anniversary in Mexico in April. So end of March is my target.

Had big plans for knitting for gifties for the holidaze, but ended up not doing much. On the needles: finishing 2 scarves next, couple more soon, also some cotton 'swiffer' replacements that can be thrown in the wash.

I didn't get to do the sweater I wanted to do for DD for Christmas. I managed to get several dishcloths knitted up while I was taking a break from the sewing room, but couldn't get my head around a big project while sewing pajamas for the whole family.

Been out of touch for a while: Finished a lovely afghan, then a pair of worsted weight socks for the littlest. Now working on scarves for Xmas...Doing Hogwarts scarves: Ravenclaw colors for the two teens. Planning a 'Mermaid' lapghan for the littlest.

I tried knitting something with that fringy yarn once, and it was exhausting! I think it's called "eyelash" yarn. It works up pretty nicely, but is a pain!

I'm working on a baby afghan with some yarn that is hard to find where the yarn is and not the extra loopy stuff around it. I've got one skein done and needed help to add on another skein. Because I knit so tightly, I don't know how to do this so I asked a lady at church today and she will help me. She has a Thursday knitting class so if she can't do it, they probably can. The yarn is very pretty and soft. I figure that probably other people had the same problems that I am having, so that is probably why it was on sale. The afghan will be soft and cuddly once it is done.

Right after I posted the information about Ravelry.com, I proceeded to spend over an hour looking through patterns and saving them to my "favorites" for future consideration! LOL

Susan, I love browsing through this site: www.ravelry.com

You can set up a free account with them or log in as a guest and just browse. You can select the PATTERNS tab and then there will be a link to search for patterns. You can type "vest" in the search box and it will show you lots of them. You can further filter your search by selecting the boxes that you want, ie: knitting or crochet, free patterns, ravelry downloads, patterns that have photos, types of patterns (apparel, toys, accessories, men, women, children, etc) and even the type of yarn you want to use.

I have to warn you, though--it is very addicting! Good luck!

Depending on what you'd like as a project, a simple acrylic would probably be good. There are some very nice, soft yarns that knit up well and are good for simple projects like scarves, hats, fingerless mitts and such. Cotton yarn, like Sugar and Cream are good for dishcloths and they make a nice, quick project that is useful and good practice.

For comfort, I like wooden needles; however, they are more expensive. If you find a pattern for a project that you like, it will have the recommended needle size on it.

I learned to knit socks a few years ago - and now belong to a knitting group and a couple of the gals are addicted to knitting socks, too.

Right now have put them aside and am knitting scarfs for our Warming Station. The Station is open nights for the homeless when the temp drops below freezing. I have been alarmed at how many homeless we have here in Pendleton, OR. But there are many who helping them as much as they can.

I've just started learning to knit dishcloths. It is great to keep the hands busy at night while watching TV. I also like to color while watching TV. If the hands are busy then you can't be putting food in your mouth!

I love to crochet. Have made numerous Baby Afghans, and hats and scarves. Have been looking for a new project. One just hasn't grabbed me yet.

Embrace the wonder that is LIFE!

Love knitting and crocheting. Make afghans, scarfs, hats, mittens, baby blankets. It does help to keep your hands busy. Do it more during winter months tho....when its dark out and can't go outside.

Both!

For large throws/Afghans I prefer to crochet. For smaller projects such as hats, and booties, I prefer to knit.

Hi Pat--congratulations on your progress so far. I love Spark People!

This thread is not a very busy one, but people pop in every once in a while. I like to knit and am usually making socks. Nice to meet you.

Hi my name is Pat and I am only 3 weeks on SP. I love to crochet and am working on hats for charity right now. I just finished beautiful Baby blanket. Just reaching out. I have lost 6 pounds and have tracked every day. That is huge for me.

back to the socks. It's a nice, productive way to relax after a busy day outside.

I'm having to set my knitting aside for a while as my hands are complaining about it. Having some repetitive motion issues and I don't want to complicate things.

I started crocheting again after years away. For my left over yarn, I'm making wheel chair blankets. These are always useful in nursing homes.

Happy to find this group. I love to crochet and although I used to be able to do the very basic knitting stitches, I think I've forgotten. Need a refresher course. I've spent the past couple of years crocheting prayer shawls, then moved on to using smaller left-over amounts of yarn to crochet chemo caps and preemie baby blankets. Just delivered some of those at our local hospital and cancer resource center. A friend just gave me another 2 boxes of yarn, need to sort it and decide what to make next...

Granny squares are great. I've never learned how to do them but my step mother made me a lovely throw for our double bed from them.

I've been knitting hats and now I'm working on a scarf. Fingers that knit stay out of the cookie bag. emoticon
