    Well I am not a knitter but really want to learn how to crochet...I am on maternity leave at the moment so finally getting a chance to do all the things I never had time to do before! We have received so many knitted and crocheted gifts for bubs that it has made me realise how good this skill really is!

    Going to try and get some supplies this weekend and give it a go :)

    I love to knit, but I'm really crap at the tension. My stuff goes from tight to slack and back again - and I have to get my mum to cast on and cast off for me too ( :eek: ) but I do enjoy doing it! I'm aiming to really nail it this year and start to get it done properly.

    Problem is I'm dyspraxic so I end up not being able to follow what I'm shown correctly.

    Will have a look into it, thank you. Really want to get into crafty stuff like that. My friend made me a bobbly wool scarf, I absolutely love it, the most I can do is a crap tensioned square :D

    Oooh I am a knitter (and a cross stitcher but knitting at the mo) I would love to see what people are doing. My current project are three jumpers for my three nephews. One is 2 and the other two are 3 month old twins. I am knitting them dalek hoodies. I had to make up the pattern myself so it is taking me a while!

    Reviving my crochet knowledge at the mo... Thank god for youtube! Am currently making an endless Granny square blanket. I am in absolute admiration of the great creative knitters and crochet ours out there. My nan was so wonderfully clever, me and my cousins had the most fab ponchos and looped cardigans.
