Now see, I can knit like crazy and just finished one sock and started on the match this week, but then I look at your quilted balls and look at my not so great quilt square........but just like the knitting I will keep trying with the quilting. It took me a long long time to knit and actually make something that was usuable. My first real knitted project was a baby blanket for my last born. I started it when I was 3 months pregnant and finished it the night I went in to have her. I learned alot from that blanket about knitting, patience and not giving up. I will have to apply it all to quilting too.funny you should ask! :nono:
(and I just LOVE how you so nonchalantly "knitted up a shoulder bag" - just like "THAT"! ha ha - I whipped up a shoulder bag - no biggy - it was EASY!!! na-nah-nana-naaaaaaa-nah!" All the while I anguish and second guess every dern knit stitch! :grit: Must be nice! hee hee)
Seriously, I see 7 years olds and blind people knit and here I am struggling over a dern scarf like I'm attempting brain surgery or some such thing! ARGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! This is supposed to be RELAXING and FUN - so "RELAX" I keep telling myself - only my fingers don't get the message. Oh, but maybe a nice sherry will help. :happy: I now stand in complete and total awe at all of you real knitters out there :bow: who can do what you do. I am satisfied to be a "hack" but I'll keep trying.
Now don't laugh. It'll hurt my feelings. But here's all I got - so far.
And in between frustrations of dropping a stitch or having to backtrack and "tink", I have done a couple of these "quilted" rag balls. THESE -at least - were easy!
A hydraulic coconut splitter...Now of all the things I might GUESS you'd say, I would have never imagined that!!! We sure have a VARIETY of stuff goin' on around the forum, don't we?Otherwise, my current project is a hydraulic coconut splitter.
