First and foremost, I realized after my first post in regard to the help with the speed stix, that I did not introduce myself and say hi to everyone. I came across this website by mistake, I was searching for info on knitting projects and this just so happened to come up. You guys seem so friendly and you all provide so much help and info. I cannot wait to chat with you all further and get to ya!
A little info about me (not that you guys care and all, but just trying to be friendly…ha!) I’m 29 years old. I live in Florida, but grew up in Ohio. I have been knitting for a little over a year now. My Grandma was a bit inspiration for me. I used to watch her knit as a little girl. She could do just about anything, but her favorites were baby sweaters, booties, and hats. Sadly, she passed away from cancer before she was able to teach me, so in honor of her, I purchased a learn to knit kit and have been teaching myself. I still have a long way to go, I can do the basics, purl and knit. But, I have yet to conquer increasing, decreasing, and so much more. But, I will get there eventually. I have completed 2 prayer shawls so far, and currently am about to begin one of those speed stix throw. If all goes well, I plan on doing several to give away as gifts. Today, I went out and bought the Lion Brand Homespun yarn to follow one of the patterns on their site. Ya know the one with cream, russet, and meadows. However, before I even realized it, I had got the wrong color, instead of cream I got Deco. The hobby lobby here does not have cream, so I ran to Michael’s and got it there. I still have 2 skeins of Deco, and am wondering if anyone has any ideas of what Homespun color would mix well with that color? The pattern calls for 4 strands to be held together, so I would need atleast 2 more colors, not unless I just did it all in Deco. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Also, I would love to hear from you all. It is finally nice to be able to meet some knitters. I do not know anyone here, as far as personal friends or family who share the same enthusiasm for this cherished craft. So, please introduce yourself…:woot:
