ripped than to never have
knit at all.
I saw this survey on Alina's Blog,
The Gift of Knitting, who was inspired
by Alexis of Yarn Birdy Blog,and thought it
would be fun to play along.....
Alone- I have never had the opportunity
to knit with a group of knitter's so it's always
just me, but I think I would like group knitting.
Best- I love most of my projects, but the one
I am most proud of is Seabrook [Jared Flood's
Leaves of Grass]. I love the design, the yarn,
the color, how delicate it is and I can't wait
for cold weather so I can wear it again.
Circular- I can use dpn's, but circulars are
so much faster so that is what I grab first if
Dream- I want to knit A dress for my daughter
Erin, it would look amazing on her.
Earliest- Sitting in front of the computer five
years ago hitting the replay button on You Tube
learning how to cast on, I did it over and over
again until I could do it without thinking.
Family- My mother knit years ago, but
with arthritis she can no longer hold
the needles without pain. I did teach
Emerson to knit so now there are two of
us in the family who are knitters.
Gloves- I learned to knit so I could knit socks,
I've never knit gloves.
Home-I can and do knit anywhere, but sitting
in my rocking chair knitting is my favorite...
well, unless I am sitting at the beach then it's
Intarsia- I have never knit intarsia and really
don't like the look of it so while I've only
knit a wee bit of fair isle I do like it.
Jokes- Knitting and driving
A policeman spots a woman driving and knitting at the same time.
Driving up beside her, he shouts out the window......
"No," she shouts back, "a pair of socks!"
Loyal- I want to do it all, draw, paint, pottery,
Photography, needle work, ect...
Mistake- I was so excited to knit my first cardigan,
but didn't know how to read the pattern properly,
I cast on and frogged four times before a dear
blogging friend taught me to use a piece of paper
to write out my rows and that the words
at the same time are pretty important.
Next- I think I am going to cast on Shield for Alex
and Guernsey Triangle for me.
One- At one time I had four projects going at once
which made me jittery, so no more than two for me.
Pattern- Any pattern by Jared Flood, he is amazing.
Quick- I can be quick if I need to be, but at this
stage I really don't want to rush, I just enjoy the
Ravelry- Totally awesome as evident by the amount
of time I spend there each day
Stitch- I like garter stitch, it's relaxing, but I've been
looking at the linen stitch and think it might be pretty
fun to try.
Toys- I'm not much for knit toys, but hats I love to knit.
Ugliest- A knee brace for a friend in a flesh colored
yarn, she loved it, but it was so ugly I didn't even
make a project page for it.
Volume- A trunk, an old suitcase, a drawer, and
a few baskets....ahem.
Wool- I prefer wool, but with all the baby knitting
I've been doing I have been using some acrylic, sigh.
Exactly- When I first began knitting I followed every
line to a tee, but now that I am more comfortable
I modify a pattern to suit my needs.
Yarn- Most of my yarn comes from my local yarn
store, Coastal Knitting. I love the ladies that work
there, I love the yarns, and I want the business to
stay open. Shopping local!
Z end- That was fun.Okay, your turn!
