Welp, after spending hours, I finally chose to make a crochet blog. I started crochetng about 8 months ago, and have since fallen in love with it. I constantly am working on a project, and spend hours scouring patterns. I just picked up knitting, but crochet still has my heart. I figured I should give knitting a chance before I snub it, though. There are a ton of cute knitting patterns I have come across, and I see a lot more knitting patterns for socks, which I like to make. I assume, from what I read about knitting, it is more elastic, and would make them and a few other items better. I am all about expanding my horizon. I am currently working on a beginner knitting pattern, a 2 x 2 ribbed scarf, using chunky yarn.
I just got Stitch 'N Bitch The Happy Hooker, The Knitter's Handbook, and Nation for my birthday, and I absolutely love it! If you have not read it, you have to check it out. The patterns are designed for ages 18-35 I believe it is, and there are some awesome patterns. It is written really well, and has a lot of interesting tid bits and tips. That is what I am using to learn knitting, along with some visual help from http://www.knittinghelp.com/. I am not a very creative person, but I am hoping to come up with some patterns and ideas of my own.
