Round and round in circles

I am wonderfully happily burried in my first really large crochet project at the moment. While it is crochet, I have to say it still feels like some kind of knitting to me... the fibre, the needle or in this case a hook, and the rhythm of each stitch. So I feel no guilt for sharing this story on this site.

Learning to knit as a adult (w Pics)

As a child I know my mother knitted. I think just about anyone in New Zealand would be able to say that, and while I cannot remember her knitting anything in particular for me, (I could be wrong) I do remember her knitting. I also remember trying to learn to knit at the time and giving up in disgust as a knotted mess hung from my needles where my scarf was supposed to be appearing. And that was that... at least so I thought.
