Now I must buy some new wool. It's fun to knit or crochet (only for my kids, cuz I have noooooo patience to knit anything bigger).Why not take a course somewhere...you know the short ones ;-) For now, I wish you a wonderful day, C.
Jeanne - I have stored very carefully in my daughter's 'memories' box a tiny little jumper, the only thing I have ever managed to knit in my life! I love wool shops with all the possibilities of texture & colour but no matter how hard I try, I just cannot get the hang of it! Susie x
You make me want to drag out some of my unfinished knitting and crocheting projects! The flowers are just beautiful. Loved your comment yesterday - you painted such a lovely picture. Leigh
Such beautiful colours,where would we be without colour! Have a lovely week. Sharon (UK) xx
Ever since I was a child I have had a fascination with the selections of 'yarn' as I would say growing up in the States, and all the amazing creations from yarn. But I never learned to knit or crochet! We did learn to crochet briefly in year 5 when we made flowers, then dabbed a scented oil on them to make them smell like carnations. I soon forgot the technique though. I have a beautiful big throw my grandma knitted...or crocheted...can't remember. How do you tell the difference? Something to do with the stitched I guess! Lovely post.
Those colors do draw us in, don't they? I taught myself how to knit just that plain first stitch, and that was it. Never got any further. You and Lydia at Clueless Crafter are tempting me to try it again... hmmm...
How lovely they all look!!!Colours transform you.Thanks for that feast for the eyes :)Joy always,Susan
Wish I could knit...I am sure it is as relaxing as it would be rewarding, xv.
I learned to knit later in my teens. As a child I lacked the patience to sit and learn from my grandmother, who besides knitting and crocheting she also macramed and laced curtains out of strands of silk.
Oh WOW....what fantastic, inspirational colours, Jeanne. Trouble is, I'm rubbish at knitting !!My sister is brilliant at it, so it's obviously not genetic !!You should get a Kaffe Fassett knitting pattern, and have a go. XXXX
I'm having serious yarn envy. I love yarn and these colors are so wonderful . Yum. I wish I had more time to knit. I blog and stay on this computer too much... and spend a WHOLE LOT of time on photography. Well I'll just look here for my "fix".V
Can I just say....that I so enjoy what YOU have to say. If you would like to write to me directly, I would love to hear from you... firstname.lastname@example.org
