The answers to the burning TT questions
If you believe that coordination has ANYthing to do with knitting, you should give it a try again. I am the world's most UNcoordinated individual. I can walk into walls that have been there for 20 years and still swear it wasn't there the last time I walked through an area. I can trip on a non-existent crack in the sidewalk. I trip up stairs. Ok ... maybe my WALKING isn't coordinated. But you get the drift.
To all you crocheters .... hats off to you, dudes. Seriously. That is one thing I cannot wrap my brain around. And I used to think that if you can knit, you can't crochet, and vice versa. A lot of people I would talk to would verify that thought. However, I have met people who can do both, and do both very successfully.
And yes, I really did teach myself how to knit from a book. Ace had to teach me how to cast on with the slingshot method (I had a video for that and I wasn't "getting" it .. but he was). And I did have to go to a local yarn store (LYS, in knitspeak) for the owner to show me that I was wrapping my stitches around incorrectly. So I guess everything wasn't learned from the book. But a majority of it was.
Robin, if you would like a purse, you just tell me what colors and I will make you one.
And if you want to see more pictures of things I've made, and yarns I've dyed ... here you go:
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
