    From hats to blankets, and everything in between, there are plenty of fantastic things that you can knit... so pot your best or most unusual creations here, or even just stop in to have a natter about knitting :ahee:

    minimarshmallow gave me some wool and bamboo needles a few months back, so I'm on a slow trek to making a scarf out of it; I enjoy knitting, but I'm not the fastest! If I ever get it finished, I'll be sure to post a photo here :mmm:

    I used to knit when I was in primary school. I could crochet a little too, but I was better at knitting. I've completely forgotten how to do it all now, so I'l have to relearn and see what I can post I think! :mmm:

    Every time I've tried it it takes me a while but I get into it, then I drop a stitch and get angry so I give up :lol:

    I need to try again though, it's been a while

    I know how to knit, I just can't do it at the moment on account of it causes a worsening of pain in the injury to my shoulder. It's the tiny little motion that really irritates it. I get it with typing sometimes as well but less so because I can put my elbows down on the table or armrests in most cases. I may give it a go to try and find a comfortable knitting position though, and then everyone's getting a scarf next Christmas!

    cant knit at all but my grandmother is great at those sorts of crafts.
    I am very good at sewing and repairing fabrics, it is a life skill people should all learn.

    Knitting is genuinely one of my favourite past times! I bus to work on a Saturday and always take my knitting along! One of my closest friends did some work experience at a hospital in Mali over the summer and they have a desperate need for premature baby clothes so I've knitted lots of hats/shorts/little dresses. They're all tinnnyyy! I also made this for my dog for Christmas:

    I tried teaching myself to knit again and ended up accidentally knitting a huge clump of my own hair, still attached to my head, into the middle of what was going to be a scarf. I had to cut the yarn, so it's just a line thick. I guess I can let my hamster wear it :laugh:

    My house is full of half sewn together monsters, dinosaurs and other little creatures because while I love knitting, I absolutely suck at construction. I should really get on that and take photos.

    The creatures I have finished are super cute. I have monster bookends everywhere. They're a personal favourite.

    I'm trying to learn to crochet but I really really suck at it. My mum mocks my inability to crochet when I'm capable of super complex knitting techniques.

    :giggle: that takes some effort! Give it another go. Maybe invest in a bobble.

    Started again this morning, hair tied and ready to go. Managed to knit a few rows, so it's going better for sure :laugh:
