You know, there are groups that you can join to help you knit... I manage one, and there are many around the world. Just go to http://www.meetup.com and search for a Knitting group in your area. I just love meeting with others to work on projects! I am currently working on a poncho (ok, I know.. one of those..) but it's very easy, and I chose yarn that wasn't too trendy. I will post it when it is done. It's also more open weaved, so it doesn't look so frumpy as some of them out there.

I went to one of the Meetup.com meetings, and there are so many knitters of all abilities! One even showed me how to purl correctly! Another inspired me to make a felted bag for my next project, too! It's so much fun, especially considering that learning from a book is ok.. sometimes you just need another person to demonstrate what's in the book.

Anyhow, I hope this helps! I swear, I keep on checking out Cecilia DeBucourt's website for more ideas. I will post pics of my finished projects. Keep on knitting, I wish you all the best!

I'm done with my poncho!
Well, ladies, here's the picture of my poncho that I just finished knitting! I couldn't take a picture of myself wearing it, so I placed it on a hanger for all of you to see. I used Moda Dea yarn, which is a mixture of pink, green, and gold wool, acrylic, and polyester. Now, I'm currently working on a ballet wrap. I'll post that when I'm done too! By the way, I was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on knitting with acrylic yarn? Just wondering... Thanks!

its lovely! i prefer the feel of acrylic to wool as i find wool really itchy. but as for knitting with it i dont have any preferences.
