Knitting Community

Thank you so very much for the lovely comments to my last entry.  I really appreciate the warm thoughts.  Knitters (and crocheters) are the nicest people.  Whenever I take my knitting to work with me or when I go to the park, lots of people look as they walk by.  But I really like when other crafters come up to talk. 

The scarf is still progressing along.  I'm at three feet now, I think I'm going to go for six.  Any longer and people will start to think I'm trying to impersonate Doctor Who (but in baby blue).  If you don't know who Doctor Who is, he's a character on a British sci-fi show that has literally been around for decades.  One of the different incarnations of the Doctor ran around with a magnificent scarf that had to have been twelve feet long and was knit for him by Queen Victoria ("a witty little knitter").  I added a picture below. 

Well, after the scarf, I think that I'll try to go with a stocking cap and a pair of mittens.  I've knit quite a few hats (some even good enough to give away as gifts), but never tried a stocking cap.  I live in Maryland where we do sometimes get cold weather.  I tend to be a very eclectic knitter.  Any pointers on the mittens would be great, I've never done mittens before.


Tomorrow I'm going to my first Knitting Guild meeting.  For a long time, I didn't really leave the house too much.  But I'm trying to turn over a new leaf and meet more people (not from work) that have similar interests. 


I'll try to write more later.  Hopefully, the meeting will go well and I'll have lots to report.  Wish me luck!

Knit Picks has a lot of very helpful videos and online tutorials (all free BTW)... glad your scarf is coming along...and OMG, I've NEVER knit a scarf that long.  I too knit and spin in public and gets into lots of conversations about what I'm doing, etc.  A good way to pass the time.
