    ....does anyone have a knitting pattern for a cushion cover please? I have some spare wool, and would like to make some big cushions to throw onto the sofa.

    Have found some on ebay, but willing to pay postage if anyone could photocopy me one.

    Many thanks
    :thankyou:

    I want to learn how to knit! Is it easy to learn from online lessons or best to be shown?? There is so much lovely wool and yarns out there these days. Maybe I will look into that - could be a nice winter sport. :D

    Ooh not sure about that BL, but I guess there must be some good tutorials about, you should have a look into it. I love it, it's so relaxing and from 2 simple stitches (knit and purl) you can make wonders.

    Grab yourself a pair of needles, a cheap ball of wool and give it a go :)

    Hi Katie! I get such a smile when I see your name here - its so nice to have you back. :)

    Funnily enough, we had a second hand book sale at work yesterday for charity - and guess what was there, right in the centre of the table? A step by setp knitting instruction book with great photos and projects!!!

    Ask, and ye shall receive!! :D

    I think I will do just that - grab a few supplys after the hols and have a go. Pennys a little to sparse at the moment!! But definately want to learn - I saw some of the greatest little knit hats in America and wanted them all!! So I must learn to make them!

    Have a great weekend hon!!

    As someone else mentioned Ravelry's great for free patterns.

    My daughter, who lives 550 miles away from me just learned to knit by watching uTube videos

    Oh well done! You'll be well away now :) My daughter is progressing really well, she just sent me a scarf for my birthday that she knit using some ultra chunky wool on 15mm needles, it's gorgeous!

    I'd second going over to Ravelry. I've found everything except for stuffed animal patterns so far that I've looked for. It's really useful, and most of the patterns I've seen have been free.
