I've been crochet'ing since I was a child, my mother taught me. She
also taught me to embroider and quilting was a very big thing in her
family-line. Mom did not know how to knit however.
Last fall, I taught myself to knit. I mostly did swatches and gauge
samples. I tried different yarns and different methods, including
using circular needles (I liked those best).
When my mother came to visit last fall, before Christmas; she showed
me the round looms. Sometimes my coordination does not cooperate, and
the nice thing about using the looms is that your stitches are
consistently uniform. Since then, I've acquired quite a few portable
looms of that sort.
I loom hats for charity in between other projects, like baby sweaters
and afghans. At this point, I've not ventured too far into other
mediums, besides yarn. Sometimes, I will see some vintage clothing,
and think, "wow! I bet I can do that! I'd wear it too" and I do (to
varying degrees of success!).
I'm considering other looms and am particularly interested in the
infinity loom for afghans. Also, I'd like to get an Amazing Needle
and love the tunisian style of stitching! A friend is soon to wed,
and I'll probably whip up a present for her!
I love to read, and since I cannot do so while crafting; I listen to
audio books when looming, crochet'ing, knitting, etc. Lately, I've
been spending more time online, in the yahoo groups (I'd forgotten
that I'd an account; as I use peoplepc.com for my ISP and my eMail).
So, I'll see what I can see!
Enjoy your weekend,
