  • What are you knitting?

    I'm knitting a pullover for my grandson who is 20 months old. I hadn't knitted anything for years and picked up my needles again when I heard he was on the way. The magic about knitting for little ones is that they don't take so long to complete.

    I am using Snuggly wool in dark cream with a beige fleck, almost finished the back but have just recently lost the oomph! Perhaps a project for the weekend.

    Hi Lori

    Have just joined the site so this is my second post. I love knitting but am quite a beginner (mum taught me when I was younger and have just started again). I'm currently making a...... scarf! (obvious beginner knit). Am doing one of those with the Wendy Cosmic and Shimmer wools mixed together - shades of browns and greens, very autumnal. Its looking good but am getting a bit sick of just plain knit, but it is on 15mm needles so they don't take too long (but they are called the 1 hour scarf - but for me more like 4 hours!!!). Have got some wool and a pattern for a cardigan, but am trying to pluck up the courage to take the pattern plunge!

      That's why I enjoy knitting for my grandson as he is 2 in March, therefore rather smallish compared to a pullover for myself.

      Not too sure how it costs out really though as there are some lovely shop bought jumpers around for little ones. Keeps me occupied when I am listening to audio study tapes though.

      I picked it up to knit some today and he was visiting and walked around the room with my wool I remember my mother having a little bag with a hole in in and the wool sat inside... have to look for one of those.... but then he would walk around the room with the bag !

        I like knitting toys, and now have an outlet for them in sending them to Post Pal kids. I just finished a Dinousaur by Jean Greenhowe (I love her patterns!!). The dinousaur is going to a child who LOVES all things jurrasic!!

        Love

                does crochet count

                Hi - I dont knit but I am crocheting a few things at the moment - I am finishing a crazy patchwork afghan - and am experimenting with doll shapes - no pattern just going - first doll turned out to be a frog bit of mistake that!
                the second promises to be a person shape - just finished a beret
                cheers

                  hi, for the past few years I have spent my winter nights nitting myself a scarf or 2....I have loads! Just straight stitch mind, no knitting a row the pearling a row My friends have also had the pleasure of receiving a scarf for christmas, They loved them! Knitting is becoming a very fasionable thing I would say, I am only 20 and alot of my friends are around my age, they are all intrigued on how to knit!
                  I am now knitting an eyeore (a step by step kit) which I had for christmas last year! I have got two ears two parts of his nose and two parts of his face! It is taking forever! I will put some pictures up of the finished product.

                    I am knitting a hooded aran jumper for my sons. Its out of felted tweed so it shrinks quite a bit, so I've made it big enough for my 6 year old and then after a few washes it will fit my 3 year old. I cant wait to finish it so I can start on a gorgeous Rowan knit for me.

                          I'm getting confused here - what on earth is your point?
