    Thanks!! While I learned the basics when I was little, I’d say I’ve been practicing/ gotten a lot better in the past couple years.

    Actually, I first learned how to knit and I thought I was ok at it (this was back when I was little too), but I really took to crocheting.. I think because I only needed one hook instead of 2 needles. Anyway, a few weeks ago, I tried my hand at knitting again.. and I'm terrible. I could barely cast on, my stitches are too tight... OH WELL. I think crocheting is a bit more versatile (for me at least) anyway, so I guess that's ok :p

    If you've made anything from your knitting sessions, feel free to share here!! We love to see our members' crafty sides!

    The girls and Timon, I'm super happy with how they turned out. I might get this done sooner than I thought.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I hope this isn't rude, but how much money do I need to throw at you for a quilt like this?

    Current project I'm working on. It's another angel blanket. This one's the Russian Angel. I finished the regular cross stitches last week and started on the backstitching this weekend. It's about 23" tall by 20" wide. The needle is on the lower right hand side for reference. I'm hoping to get this completed before the summer heat kicks in.[​IMG]

    Oh dear, backstitching is when I stop and wait. It is my least favorite part.

    She is lovely. What is the count?

    I dislike backstitching as well. Especially with the metallic thread.

    The thread count is, well, the blanket is a baby alphabet afghan with center block - 18ct, but I did the stitches over two threads to make it large on the blanket, so it's more of a 9ct.

    Here's a close-up of the stitches.[​IMG]

    Ugh metallic thread. It is so frustrating when it separates.
    Your stitches are so clean though.

    Oh, thank you for that! When I took the close-up photo, all I could see were the stitches that look a little wonky.
