The knit group was fun, although I don't feel like I'm the best to show how to knit - like I said earlier I taught myself & I think it's just something that you try for awhile before the "A-HA! I understand it!" comes about. And it really wasn't until this year & reading LOTS of knitting blogs for advice that I became a pretty decent knitter. Probably discover that circular needles are the best invention ever helped with that. I decided I hate straight needles now. Which is too bad because I have a billion due to an auction on ebay!
Ugh I have some sniffly cold - I have been sneezing or having that feeling I'm going to sneeze (which is worse) for days now. I have been taking my Emergn-C stuff everyday so I'm fighting it but I hate this damn tickle in my nose.
Just checked out Yarn Girls Guide to Beyond the Basics - it actually came into the library fairly quickly. The first one was the first knitting book I ever bought & while I do like a lot of it, most of the things I've made (such as the "Huge...but Sexy") using their patterns have been disasters. Of course it was all completly my fault but then I discovered Stitch n' Bitch & knitting sweaters in one piece and kinda gave up on the Yarn Girls. But I am excited to read a new knitting book - Loop D Loop was the last excellent one I've discovered. I guess I'm one of those hipster knitters because every other knitting book seems to have fug patterns.
