Knitting looks so easy........


After oohing and aahhhing over Michelle's, Lois' and all the other Shetland and Jacob folks knitting that they show on their blogs I really felt like I could identify with this dog! :)

Oh dear, that poor puppy really has the "caught in the act" look. Hang in there; it really does get easier (says she who is MUCH happier with the new mohair yarn for the wedding shawl). :-)

haha That puppy is cute :)

You just need to get a round or straight loom to start out on. That's what I di. They are simple to use and you can make anything that knitters that use needles can.

I make scarfs and pot holders, towels, blankets with my straight loom. And with my different sized round looms I can make hats and socks.
Look for them at your local craft store. They are very affordable and are called "Nifty Knitters"

Have fun!

I came home to that very same thing the other day. Naughty pup.
But it is pretty easy and a good thing to do in the winter while watching "Dancing With The Stars"

No, no, guys are reading that picture all wrong. That dog is in actuality showing you a very difficult and complex string trick!
Didn't you ever do that back in grade school...where you take strings and wrap them around around certain fingers and the criss-cross of strings then make different patterns and twists, or come untangled altogether? Some tricks were called things like "Cats Cradle", etc.
This very clever pup here is merely showing you his advanced string trick. This particular trick is called "catch the chipmunks". See them all?

If you ever need knitting tips, I am always glad to help...but hang in there, it is not as hard as it seems.

Since you are not yet an addicted knitter, you've probably got a minute or two to check out my blog - 'cause I went and tapped you.

Now that's hilarious!

I have a feeling that's exactly how my "knitting" would look.
