My name is Debbie, i am from British Columbia, Canada. I have been knitting for a good 2 yrs. And crocheting for a 5 yrs give are take. just recently I have been really improving on my crocheting and knitting.
I would like to chat or change conversations with other people on this site. I hope i get to meet new comers and of course people who have been on here for a long time.
Right now i am giving myself a challenge to knit me a bomber sweater. My first ever knitted sweater just for me. Not to sure if i spoke too soon.
Hi Debbie and welcome to Knitting Daily. A bomber sweater sounds like a great idea. If you run into problems, be sure to ask here and also post a picture of the finished sweater.
My name is Sue, 54, I'm from California, USA, but I use to live near Seattle and love the northwest. I have been knitting for about 5 years now. And I crocheted a bunch a long time ago.
It's super cool that you are going to knit clothes for yourself and I love the idea that you are going to knit a bomber sweater. Did you find a pattern and buy the yarn? Does it have any new stitches that you are learning? Do you have to adjust the pattern to fit your figure? Maybe post a pics of your progress?
I've been looking on these boards for a place to chat about knitting. I don't knit daily, but I've been doing it quite a bit lately. And I visit this site almost daily.
I recently taught myself how to double knit, so I could a nice thick potholder for my boyfriend. I love how double knitting allows me to create really fun and colorful patterns, and I am wondering ( inspired) if someday I might be able to make a whole bunch of potholder patterns and then sell them on a website like etsy.
I have 3 knitting projects that I am working on now (all my own designs): slippers(done but need to be sewn-up), felted purse (half knitted) and new double knit potholder for my ex's mom who I still keep in touch with.
