extremely basic knitting, of the typoe used to make scarves when I have time...with wooden knitting tools, and yarn bowls that I make for others to enjoy
not long at all... mostly I watch how it goes
I'm an amatuer woodturner and I come every once in a while to to see how others have solved their "common" fiber based problems in creative & interesting ways, and see if I can invent new fixes to them with wooden creations that I make in my shop.
Lisa took the words out of my mouth...it was lightly attended. There were 5 people this Tuesday, including the younger knitter of Germanic background (Emily?) Nice group of knitters. Friendly and welcoming. They talked about lots of different kinds of knitting, and that some had elected to not do drop-spindle spinning stuff. Lisa critiqued the tip of the knitting needle sample I brought as too blunt and thus unworkable. I will correct the flaw (you can do that in wooden needles) and try again. I just don't want to intrude on this friendly bunch of people.
