for fingerless gloves...cut the foot off some old socks ...use the leg part and make a hole for your thumb...

VOILA!!!...i have several pairs...
knitting takes too long for me...i prefer crochet...but i don't really even have the patience for that ...unfortunately...

i come up with ideas and then give them to my mom to do for me...

I've been doing that for years. But mostly with lacy tights.

Hi everyone,
I have some brilliant web sites for all those that want to knit. One of the best (and most famous) is www.castoff.info
They have a great message board and everyone arranges to me in various pubs or cafe's in London for a good "Stitch and Bitch" session. Last one I went to this really nice lady taught me how to do all kinds of things. One meeting was held on the Circle Line (London Underground) Everyone went around and around all afternoon chating and eating home made brownies and muffins and drinking coffee from thermoses.

Another great site is www.knitty.com This site has loads of free and easy patterns. The knitted uterus is my favourite.

You're right about wanting to do more stuff. I'm trying to work on a pair of mittens. I got a little tired with scarves and square things!

I have to knit at school sometimes. Few weeks ago I knitted myself a sweater but unfortunately it came out too big and I can't wear it.

I've been thinking of taking it myself since I began making my own fabric pieces. I love raglan knits and anything with loose yarns. That sort of one-off feel is great to me. Nothing perfect as I feel it takes the spontaneity out of it....and to me that's what makes it so fun.

Decontstructed granny chic,I suppose

Softie,I've been doing the sock thing too. I made two pairs out of military socks.

Have you guys ever transformed your old stockings or tights into socks? I got a bunch of my mother's old pairs and they look really cool when they're sliced and layered. You shred the top half and fold it over to the toe.
