Knitting is typically a winter hobby. Frankly, the posts in many of the other categories have been so interesting, knitting chat has taken a backburner for me. I approve of discontinuing it for now, but don't be surprised if it stirs up again in the fall.

I never did learn to knit. But I love to crochet. Right now, I am finishing up a big afghan in plum, blue and cream colors. I don't have a home for it yet, but I'm sure I'll find someone to give it to. Perhaps my mom for Mother's Day. Or Dennis' mom.
I also have one grandkid's afghan to do. I promised before Christmas, when I gave one to little Teresa, our newest grandchild, that I would do one for each grandchild. Teresa's was the first, then Colin, then Abby, I just finished Regan's and now I have little Alexandra left to do.
I also enjoy doing the little crocheted-top handtowels for sale. I make other small items too.
You may delete this forum if you wish, but I think it should be expanded to include crocheting and other crafts..not all of us knit. But I'll bet most of us love doing some sort of crafty things. Perhaps expand it to arts and crafts. What do you think?

I may give arts and crafts a try. Good idea. I just have to figure if there is a way to keep the knitting posts and move them to a new forum. I don't want to lose them.

Arts & Crafts is a good idea -- as Countrygirl says -- not everyone knits and that may have kept people away. ( I tend to lean towards crochet myself [Smile] )

I think Arts and Crafts would be a great idea. I have been away from the forum due to work and personal time stress, but would love a place to talk about any crafts, get ideas, share good tips etc,

One suggestion for those working with skeins of yarn...if you get tired of chasing your skeins all over the floor, try using a clean 3 lb. coffee can with a dime-size hole in the center of the lid. Just put your skein in the can, thread the end of your yard through the hole in the lid, and your yarn will stay right beside you, clean and untangled.

for a while i was doing a lot of crocheting. i made some lovely dolls. before christmas i sold several dolls and toys and even some afgans at a few craft shows. in the winter time i may go back to doing more crochet... right now i have cut back on my crafty stuff because i am working so hard on my writing.... i am taking an online writing class on how to write and edit my novel... and i have been sending out short stories and poems to contests and places to get published....
(big smile) i have had some stories get accepted for publication.... yipee!!!!
so less time for crafts...
anyone here write a story for dots book?
i am in the process of writing a know like a Mary Higgins Clark novel or a Dean Koontz. I have 98 pages written. My instructor is tough on us and we do a lot of rewrites but she says i have talent...yipee. so lots less time to crochet....
mostly i only crochet when i watch tv in the evenings.
