10 Knittery Things About Me

1. I knit 'backwards' according to my Mom
2. I never stick to a pattern
3. I frequently forget simple things like ribbing: once you get to the next row do you begin with a purl or a knit?
4. I have only once used the recommended yarn for a pattern - it seems to be working out just fine
5. I have begun more projects than I can count
6. I knit slooooowly
7. I don't like to share my yarn
8. I like buying yarn for other people
9. I have never made anything lacey
10. I think most Fair Isle is just ugly

i rarely use the recommended yarn either, usually because i'm a cheapskate.

It's always fun to learn more details about new friends... I'm with Carrie, but I prefer to be called "frugal" :0)

Hope you're feeling better, I spent most of yesterday huddled under my blanket hoping this whole flu thing passes quickly.

You think fair isle is ugly? Well, I can finally be honest then. I sent the instructional video because you said in your questionnaire that you were interested in the technique. I won that video as a door prize at a fair but never opened it because I think fairisle is often ugly too! Hee hee.

Yvette! That is so funny.
I do want to know how to do it - but mostly I think Fair Isle goes too far. Like a whole sweater of it?
Or wrapped around my giant head?
I am totally intrigued by working with the many colours - I just wouldn't necessarily like the end product.
Does that make any sense?
I am relieved to know you did not pay a lot of money for the video - because I haven't opened it either!
I might. I did just see a very nice mitten set that used the technique...
