    I was just expressing my opinion. It wasn't my intention to offend.

    Ok then. But if it wasn't your intention to offend then I can only deduce that you are just plain stupid

    Why am I stupid? Simply for expressing an opinion?

    For both thinking that your comment wouldn't cause offence and for thinking that knitting is just for 'old maids'. What planet are you on?

    What I find the most ironic about this statement is who it's coming from. :lol: Old maids, eh? :chin:

    I knit and cross stitch and am going to attempt to conquer the sewing machine this winter. I briefly tried to crochet, but I really couldn't grasp how to create anything with just a single needle. I don't get people who say it's easier! :p

    some of it is cheap, like normall needles and acrillic wool, but cashmere, silk, bamboo, merino, are expencive. needles, plastic ones are cheep, wood ones and such are more expencive

    I find needles expensive because you have to have all the sizes to get the right tension! I have a range of straight needles but I need to start collecting double pointed and circular now! Mind once you have them then you're set

    I knit - have made a few ipod socks and a hat and scarf my babies!

    I knit. Can't crochet for the life of me, though. Other than Ravelry, knitty.com is awesome for free patterns.

    Don't piss off a knitter. We have sharp sticks and not afraid to use them. :mad: :p

    ilipintt, you are offensive, but then I expect nothing less from someone who is as narrow minded and naive, like you. *sigh*

    If you have nothing constructive to say in a thread, you may as well not bother.

    TT, what skirt are you planning?

    I can't knit, and with crochet I only got as far as making myself a woolly moustache in the style of Robert Winston, but I do like sewing. More than sewing though I like buying fabric and just having it - I think it's the potential it has rather than actually wanting to use it!

    I'd like to be able to knit. My mum taught me the basics when I was about 9 but I've forgot it all now :(

    I might invest in a good book to teach me when I have some time!

    I was the same, someone taught me when i was a child, but i forgot it all, so I retaught myself using books :)

    It is easier! And much quicker. I lose patience very easily so I need to see results quickly to keep me interested.

    Much easier.

    As well as only having one needle to contend with, you only have one stitch too!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I can, well used to, knit and I was never any good at it. I cant even knit basic squares!

    Cross-stich is much better for me, but I have loads of kits (about 10 and one pattern that should have been finished off 4 months ago) to do as I seem to be lacking the motivation to do them.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

    You should knit socks. Socks are ace. Small projects but such versatility *nods*

    What pattern do you use for your socks? And how do you make sure they fit your feet! I have small feet (4) and most patterns seem to be for larger feet

    You hate thumbs but you can do the heel of a sock! Thumbs are much less complicated!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Well after seeing this thread gain more pages, suppose I should pop my head in!

    Love the little hat on the first page :)

    Can't knit for shit :) - Not got the time to do it ha!

    Though i'd through in a joke - Who's got nits ;)

    While I'm craftphotowhoring, these are the only things I think I've ever properly finished. They're the Fetching wristwarmers from Knitty.com:

    I use knitty for lots of patterns. I find that I make them cuff down and I can try them on as I make them. I like Monkey best.

    As for finished things I am proud of, here are my elephants, my blanket and I just finished a baby jacket.

    That blanket is amazing! I'm ordering some double pointed needles off ebay so I can start the sock mission! :D

    On the Earth. I still don't see why it's offensive.
