    Knitting!

    Are there any knitters out there?

    I really enjoy knitting. And making things, in general. It gives you such a nice feeling of accomplishment when you finish and are staring at a finished product.
    I only started last summer, but I have made a few scarves and pillows.

    This one I made for a friend who lives in Finland, it is the Finnish flag. As he is very patriotic, and involved in the political party.



    This one I made for myself, because I miss Canada..



    And I made this pillow for a friend of mine..and made a pocket seprately, than sewed it on..and inside the pocket I put two keys..and wrote a thing about how friendship is a sacred gift...these keys represent..my friendship to you..and your friendship key is yours to give to whomever you wish.

    Aww, that is sweet. I have yet to learn how to make baby clothes..or anything that you use the circular needles for...is it very hard to learn how to use the circular ones, for booties, shirts, mits, etc?

    That's okay, I only just joined last night.

    And aww..thank you so much. I really enjoy making things..especially for others.
    I made a purse too, but I forgot to get a picture of it before I sent it off.

    And yep, I am from Ontario, Canada.

    Re: Knitting!

    I'm from Ontario originally as well. Good thing to be able to knit around those parts!

    I like knitting hats but haven't done any for about 2 years. I tried crocheting but haven't gotten very good at that. I don't have any knitting needles with me now but I might have to go out and get some now that you mention it.

    I love the pillow. Pockets are good.

    Re: Knitting!

    Those are wonderful scarves, Delilah! And I love the pocket pillow! I admire people who can knit and crochet; I can't.

    Do you know about www.getcrafty.com? It's a craft and DIY (do it yourself) website and knitting is HOT with those people! I hope you'll show us more of your cool creations!!
