I'm Kara and a new member - I'm definately not as talented as some others here, so please don't laugh!! My daughter is very into art and craft stuff, and is very creative, so I'm learning a lot through her, but I'm enjoying it all too.
Every year before Christmas we have a simple craft project on the go to produce little gifts to send to friends and family, as we cant afford to buy presents for everyone we'd like to (and I think hand-made gifts are nicer anyway). This is what we're doing this year: hanging felt bells, with a chocolate coin in each.
I have just learnt to knit (hooray!!) and this is my first finished piece - a dishcloth (how much more exciting can life get?!). I'm now working on some stripy armwarmers, a bit more interesting it has to be said, but I have to call on my Mum everytime something goes wrong, which gets a bit frustrating. Anyone know of any troubleshooting manuals/websites for rubbish knitters?
