    Yeah the rock out there was pretty gorgeous.

    Except there was one rock that must have been some other kind of stone, I don't know what, but it was really awful. It was really rough on the hands, and if it hadn't been jugs all the way I'm pretty sure I would have died from blood loss or something.

    Dear craft thread

    I have started binding my own little books! I have made one so far, with a second almost done. I am using cheap materials until you know, I get the hang of it! I am excited, could I get in on the crafting circle thing at some point? Would people be interested in little doodle journals?

    Tonkka! Come on or this thread is going to get a boring blanket shot from me.

    Gimme stuff. Please. And I don't just mean my Secret Satan.

    So I mentioned a while ago in this thread that I wanted to learn to knit. Luckily I have a friend who knits like a champ and was happy to teach me. So I made this

    Yes it's a scarf. The single most boring thing you can knit. But it was fun and it's soft, and it's ready just in time for.. uh.. spring. Oh well.

    Has the package arrived yet? Hopefully none of the pieces broke off in transit.

    Well in response to this thread I've had another attempt at learning to knit. Nothing fancy, just a simple knit stich square/rectangle.

    My first attempt a couple months ago I must have been inadvertantly adding stitches because the resultant rectangle was shaped like a square ended crescent.

    Did two rectangles today and they are ok, not particularly consistent tension and the binding off was a tad tight so that end is a tiny bit puckered but much better.

    So, how difficult are socks?

    Hooray more knitters!

    Compared to a rough square, socks are tough

    You'll need to know k2tog/p2tog, m1l/r, how to pick up stitches and how to knit with dpns, circs or magic loop - I'd suggest starting with a hat! There's a lot of the same stitches but the larger yarn and needle sizes make it a lot easier to work with.

    So much knitting nerd slang. I actually read that dpns as dps at first.

    I was wondering what dps had to do with knitting.

    Yeah, had a little look at some sock patterns last night. The first pattern I looked at needed five (five!!!) needles, doubled pointed ones no less. Pffff, I can just about manage two without poking myself in the eye.

    Think a hat or some cuboid juggling balls (gotta use up those squares somehow) will be my first proper project.

    Yay, it came! You're a pro! I painted a marine for fun once, he's pink and purple >.>
    Ah! My camera's battery is dead - if you could post pics that'd be great, I'm not sure when I'll get some up!
    I will put mine next to yours for comparison :)

    I am insanely jealous of all you knitters.

    I never ever have the time to knit, so my skills aren't progressing at all. I maybe knit 30 stitches (one row) a day before something comes up and I need to stop.

    Awesome! I trsuts it all came undamaged? Some paint might have scraped off but who knows. I'll see if I can't find my pictures of it. If I can't then everyone will have to wait. :o

    I look forward to seeing the two mighty space marines together.
