30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 20

Do you knit in public? Was anyone offended/incredibly happy/curious that you were doing so? Absolutely! I’ve mentioned before that I go to a Thursday Knitting group through Meetup and we meet at a Le Boulanger. We try to get the biggest table they have because we can have up to 14 people. We get questions…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 19

Do you watch movies and/or listen to podcasts while knitting? What are your favorite things to knit to? It really depends on what I am knitting. If it’s something simple, then yes. All the time! If it’s lace, absolutely not! I watch regular tv shows that I have DVR’d (I hate commercials) and knit most…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 18

Do you knit English or Continental? English; however I flick instead of throwing the yarn. Wow, that was an easy question, right? I guess I could be finished there; however that would not be a very entertaining blog post, now would it? Here’s a video of Stacey from Very Pink Knits demonstrating this style. I’m…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 17

Have you ever had a project that you loved become ruined? What’s the story behind it? I haven’t had a project that I loved, however my Mom loved it. This was right before I started knitting. I started a granny square crochet blanket…one of those that you just keep knitting the granny square until it’s…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 16

We are officially more than half way through the challenge now! Today’s question? Have you ever had a knitting related injury? Bwahahahahaha…I laugh at you stupid knitting injury! No, I really don’t. It sucks. And yes, I am currently going through a knitting related injury. Most of my regular readers already know about this because…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 15

What was your least favorite pattern and why? I don’t know if it’s fair to blame the pattern on this, because it’s not the pattern’s fault. The pattern is actually written very well. This was a case of the yarn not falling in with the pattern, along with the deadly combination of having a severe cold….

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 14

What’s the worst yarn/fiber that you’ve worked with and why? Oh, this is a really easy question! Although I crocheted this project, the yarn was not very nice to work with. It was scratchy, coarse, squeaky and just plain didn’t feel good in my hands. I’m shocked that I made it through an entire blanket…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 13

Do you have yarn that you love but can’t find a project for? Let’s get one thing straight. I love all my yarn, well almost all of it. Is there yarn that I’ve been dying to knit with, but just haven’t found that perfect project? Absolutely! I purchased this yarn in August of 2015 and…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 12

Where do you keep your stash? Post pictures! Okay…this is going to be embarrassing. Some of you might remember when I did a blog post about reorganizing my stash in January 2016 and getting it out of my closet so I could see it. If not, here’s the post. Take a look at it because…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 11

Do you have a “Knitter Hero” or someone that is just way too awesome for their own good? Do share! This one had me sitting here scratching my head for a very long time. Not because I don’t know someone who is my knitter hero or that is just way too awesome for their own…
