Do You Knit?
 
# 1 : Sunday 20-9-2009 @ 20:11
 
 
Seriously, do you knit? Or do anything crafty at home?

I was out shopping today and saw a deadly knitted hat, so in I went and priced it...€17.50...I was very much of the WTF? persuasion and thought: sure I could knit that meself. So knit it I will, in the colours that go with the scarves I knitted last year.

So do you knit, wha'?

Many have tried to teach me to knit.
None have succeeded.

I gave up after all three sisters, a grandmother, my mother, her sister and her son (aunt and cousin) all tried to teach me and I just couldn't get the hang of it.

I want to knit, I really do. I have some great ideas for some jumpers....

When I was a teenager I knitted Aran jumpers, scarves, mittens and hats, for a woman who sold them on. So yes, I can knit.
Last year I knitted myself a purple jumper, it's so cosy.
You can say that is expensive for a knitted hat CZ, but good wool is rather expensive and then the labour involved (wool dries the hands) is it really worth it.

I'd also love to learn how to use a spinning wheel, so as to make my own yarn and wool.
Then its soooo unique.
And the footprint is really light.
Especially if you eat the sheep after!

If you wax the wool, sharon, it doesn't dry them out, but that's a whole other realm.

So, who's gonna teach me to knit.

@ Jackoire: sewing isn't too difficult, although if its a seam in a jacket I'd suggest you find someone with a sewing machine.
They'd run up that seam in ten minutes.

never got the hang of it, had a habit of making the stitches too tight and it made the wool squeak. wool squeaking is one of those noises that gives me goosebumps

I'm learning I saw a tenor do it in rehearsals and I thought what a cool way to keep busy when your not on stage! A friend of mine is teaching me. I'm working on my first scarf.
