Carrie's Craft Stuff

This public forum is expressly for sharing things we like to do when we're not playing computer games. Some of us cross stitch. Some knit. Some crochet. Some do all of those, and more! What do YOU do in your spare time?

Do you use the one needle instead of 2? I think it's because I don't get them :rotfl:

You use the two needles that are at the ends of the long cord. You can knit as usual, and turn your knitting as you always do, or you can use a size of circular cord where you can always just do knit-type rows...just keep going around and around and around.

I just ordered myself some 10mm circular needles from ebay! They were only £2.85 with delivery, going to try doing a super chunky scarf sometime :joy:

It's that time of year or at least it is here right now, where I go into jam making mode, then it will be knitting shortly after :rotfl:
