26: Have you ever been a part, or wanted to be a part of a knit-a-long? What was it? If not, why?
No I haven’t. They’re a good idea though I think; for those who don’t know, they’re projects embarked upon by multiple people at once who then cheer each other on and compare. It’s quite popular over at Ravelry and I intend to do one once there pops up a project I can get my teeth into!
27: How do you acquire most of yarn?
Online. Ebay is the best but there are a lot of websites for buying good yarn. For example:
- Dragon Yarns
- Sanguine Gryphon – currently having a closing down sale!
- Natural Dyed Yarn
- Loop Knitting
And believe me, that’s just the start. Ebay has never failed me in finding cheap, high quality yarn though, so I always start there.
28: Do you do any other crafts besides knitting?
I crochet. Though I started knitting first, it was crochet that really caught my imagination. It was only when I went back to knitting to try a few pretty patterns that I realised how much I enjoy doing it.
Though I spend most of my time knitting now, I’d really like to do some crocheting again after the Christmas rush is over. I’d also like to try making jewellery one day, though my next obsession looks to be spinning and dyeing my own yarn once I have the chance.
Day 29: Do you have any tips, or things that you’ve learned from knitting?
See a previous post, Five Things I’ve Learnt From Knitting and Crochet.
Day 30: What’s your name on Ravelry?
My name over there is ‘Eternie’. Add me! Send me a message! Or just post-stalk me but beware – I hang out at LSG (Lazy, Stupid and Godless). My content might not be completely safe for work/life. 😉
And there concludes thirty days of knitting condensed into six. Quite appropriate, don’t you think, considering it’s nearly giftmas? I have weeks of patterns and only days to finish them. I leave for Canada in less than two weeks. I have about a thousand things to do before then, most of which do not leave much time for knitting.
Oh well. I’ll get it done.
Thanks for sticking through this meme and please – link me if you’re doing it yourself, I’d love to read!
