    I tried knitting once. My Textiles teacher gave me a yellow ball of wool and told me to knit a small square. What I actually ended up with was something resembling a banana.

    Holy ****, good timing! I spent Christmas with my boyfriend's family and his mother is a knitting fiend. I'd never learnt but had always wanted to and for part of my Christmas present from them, his mom surprised me with a pair of knitting needles and three balls of yarn. I'm now addicted.

    I might make a knitting society! I want to knit my boyfriend a gigantic big blanket because in his breaks at work he likes to sit in his car reading books

    A friend of mine. I sew. Way more fun.

    For some reason the only people in school that do stuff like knitting and crocheting are the guys. Another girl and I sew, but that's just minor stuff.

      Snap. My nanna was awesome at knitting, but she's not alive any more and I don't have anyone that's patient enough to teach me :puppyeyes:

      I really wish I could knit though, being able to make my own cable knit jumpers would be amazing!

      Hmm... this was interesting. I thought a lot more people knitted.
      Is textile work a mandatory subject in schools in the UK? The reason for my question is that it is mandatory where I live, so most of us learn how to knit. In France it isn't though, so that makes me a bit curious about how you do it.

      Nope. You can choose to do Textiles as part of GCSE DT but that's all. I did textiles but we never did any knitting, just using sewing machines.

      I guess I should consider myself lucky then... I studied it for seven years, which included quite a lot of knitting
