Think of this as the amateur sports forum. If you intend to sell, market (for example, naming a product), and bring in money with the item you are working on, you are a pro and your post belongs in the WAHM section (the pro sports forum . ) If you are making the item simply out of enjoyment and do not now or ever in the future intend to make money off of the item, not limited to the one shown, but ones like it in the future, it may be posted in the Creative Corner.

Posting business types of threads in Creative Corner is considered a violation of our forum posting policy (specifically rule #2.)

Hi Kim! Hooray for lots of yarn! I hope the move will work out for you. And a wonderful LYS is important. ; ) Can't wait to see pics of your spinning and knitting.

Considering I don't have a LYS now, this is fantastic news.  It even handles fiber and wheels. Poor DH says he's gonna go broke with a yarn store in town. LOL

This year I plan on actually learning to make tassels and pom poms-each year I think 'that looks cute-I will try that next' and never do. Why is that?  Anyway 2012=year of the tassles and pom poms (for knitted projects that is)
I have a few scarves that I promised people that I would like to finish-two to be exact and a third one for myself.  I lost my Alpaca boucle scarf I knit myself (it was my first completed project)-5 skeins of the most beautiful yarn-GONE!  So I bought less beautiful yarn and less of it-but a scarf it will make.
Lastly, I have been wanting to finish a lace project I started a few years ago that has been sitting in a project bag-I set it down and forgot where I was in the pattern and have been too lazy to figure it out or sadly start over-but SOMETHING needs to happen with it and 4 years later it isn't doing it on it's own. (GASP I know those knitting gnomes aren't doing their job)
Oh, oh I wrote it down...that's the first step right?Tongue

Martha, writing it down is the first step :)

Kim that's beautiful!


I found and ordered some wooden animals from Etsy. I'm a step ahead already!
Now paint. I read all about milk paint. I wonder if anyone here has any experience to share with me about it?
TIA

So I am totally in a knitting funk  I think it's that I've been so busy that my only knitting time is after the boys go to bed.. and at that point I'm so exhausted (D is still up a ton at night) that I just can't seem to pick up a project.  Can you guys give me some encouragement?  I think I need to CO a small project and get some instant gratification...

Sorry that I am just seeing this. ((hugs)) Christina. You can do it. Definitely something small that will make you smile could help. I go through times where I either have no time or desire to knit too. A little instant gratification helps. Have you seen this pattern by Carina Spencer? It is a super quick knit, especially if you make the worsted version. Quick, easy and pretty. I made 2 of them in just a couple of days. I think I may be making a third soon too. Or her Dovetail Cowl is also pretty and quick and easy. And either could be made with a single skein of C220 (well, the small cowl anyway). I hope you have already found something that speaks to you that you have made and are back to happily knitting.

I finished my very first crocheting project, a cape (poncho) and hat.
Far from perfect, many flaws but overalls I think it looks ok for a first timer...

Rifky, that is just beautiful.

I plan on knitting a dishcloth by Septmber. I think I might be able to accomplish that. But first, I need to figure out my tension issues!
