    I keep seeing stuff for the crochet club. I'm a knitter. Anyone else? I also like making my own clothes...refashioning t shirts into dresses and old man pants into halter tops and what not. Anyone else down with this?

    What did you win??? Inquiring minds want to know [​IMG]

    I knit! I keep thinking of refashioning clothes, but the most I have ever done was to lop the legs off a pair of my daughter's jeans that were too short and sew some fabric on to make a skirt. She never did really like it though because I made it long [​IMG] Kids LOL

    Here's the two hats I have knitted so far [​IMG]

    This one was for Crane

    Guitartist ~ I love that hat! That is adoreable! I wish I knew how to knit. I posted a link how to learn to crochet on the crochet thread if ya'll want to check it out.

    Vamp A Billy ~ What prize did you win? Yes, yes...we want to know! [​IMG] We revamp clothes sometimes to make diff ones, so let me know if you start something.

    Maybe ya'll can help teach me to knit & I can help you with the crochet. [​IMG]

    Sweet! I know how to knit a crochet chain w one knitting needle. I can do it with a crochet hook too but I lost mine...we can totally swap teaching.
    I am gonna show everyone how to make a cute little girly shirt out of a big baggy man tshirt.

    I didn't really win a prize. Check out the thread...I'm now overrun...does that mean I'm learning alot or I'm on here too much.

    Quote:After so many post you get a new title. Lucky you..........you won a prize!

    So did you check out the crochet learning link I posted? Sounds like you have the chain stitch down already. You can get the hooks at any craft store or wally world. I have some knitting needles that use to be my moms. but I've never used the.
