Knitting nut

I know absolutely nothing about knitting.  Like in nothing, nada!!

I can't read a pattern, so I don't know what any of those funny symbols mean.

But I enjoy clicking those needles back and forth.
It is very relaxing, vegging in front of the TV.

 I really ought to take a class, so I can learn how to make something other then a scarf.

But until then, I will just knit back and forth and "HOPE" that I can knit enough to at least make a shawl.

 I love shawls.

LOL - my skill level is the same as yours - but I would love to tackle socks! Although a shawl would be lovely, I think I'll have to try that too this winter.

I love to knit scarves. The occasional hat too:)

Your post made me smile! Happy knitting! It sounds like you're happy doing it and that is what matters most! Shawls are nothing more than bigger scarves! You made me want to cast on a new project today.

Yup ... this is right up my alley ... I have some lovely blue yarn and am clicking away on a basket weave baby blanket ... I discovered those big circular needles!

Well you know more than I do because your going back and forth with the knitting I can't even do that.

I am good at dishcloths...that is all. I want to make socks. I bought some pretty sock weight yarn, needles and a book. I hope to sit down next week after hubby goes back to work and learn something about making socks.
Like you I find knitting back and forth so relaxing. I could make dishcloths for everyone and be so happy.

I always enjoy knitting, but never seem to do any for some reason. I have been seeing some lovely shawls around blogland lately, but I don't think I'd ev er wear one. I might just have to make one anyway.

I am in the same boat. I look at those patterns and my brain goes to mush. I would love to be able to make a scarf but that usually doesn’t work out too well. I hope you can figure out how to make your shawl. Then you should send one to me!
