I've tried knitting before but gave up in frustration. I wish I could make myself try it again. That scarf is gorgeous!

I can knit a little bit but I feel that way about the strange alchemy that is crochet! I'd love to be able to but I think it's beyond me!  ;D

I watched about a dozen YouTube videos and still could only get a tiny bit done. It was quite humorous at the time.

The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

I just dug out my homespun blanket when the weather turned!  It's perfect for that! :)
A blanket is something I was thinking about making. How long did it take you?

It took me awhile and my friend taught me, I think this was before YouTube was awesome.

Just checked my notes. I used 6 skeins and it took about 6 weeks.

Thanks for the pattern! I've not knitted anything in a couple of years. Maybe I'll get some done this winter!  :)

Just an aside, Knit Picks has a big sale on now with free shipping to the UK for anything over, I think 35 pounds.

Not sure if it's on sale (haven't had time to check) but the Daughter just swears by "Wool of the Andes". Lovely sweaters out of it.

You mentioned! I'm just trying to figure out what colour I want it to be. So many options and the colour on the monitor isn't always accurate.

I just knitted my first hat in the round. I'm pretty darn proud of myself!

My next one will be better.

Very nice! I still stink at knitting, but it's not as hard on my hands so I want to get better.

I'll have to take a pic later, but I joined a local crochet group and made a "braided cowl" (just need to get buttons) and a bunch of flowers for a local nicu to give to parents on mothers day. :)
