Ye, but you might want to make sure and wait for another person here to confirm this as I am on the fence. Better yet, why don't you call the Medifast guys because they can assist you better...
I started crocheting last year to help deal with the stress. I love it now. I pretty much taught myself from.
And you tube videos. I tried to learn to knit, but I think I was too uncoordinated. Perhaps you can try crocheting?..
I like to think I can knit but I can only make scarves and then once they are long enough I have no idea how to get them off my needles!..
I am a crochetin' FOOL! Just started knitting lessons with a chica in my Stitch N Bitch club too! I love it! Homemade gifts, stress reliever, getting lost in some amazing yarn, it's amazing!..
I knit scarves, baby blankets, dishcloths, that type of thing. Haven't gotten up the guts to try a sweater or anything more complicated yet. Where are you? I have some great baby afghan directions that are supposed to take 8 hours, mine always take more like 40 or 40! But it is a fun way to pass the time esp in the winter! I knit all my dishcloths. Love the homemade ones best..
I have a friend who says once you learn to knit and purl, you can do anything. Not sure I believe her yet, but I might try something more complicated this winter!.
I am in York PA? Anywhere close by?.
Mine always take like 30 or 40! I need to proofread better!..
I knit and crochet. Right now, I'm only working on scarves. I put some sweater projects on hold until I've lost my weight. I don't want to devote hours to something I won't be able to wear this time next year!..
I also crochet...have for years, but got really into when I got serious about losing this weight last year...hands in the yarn, are not in the kitchen...
I do mostly blankets...working my way through the family, and some close friends....
I have done 8 in the last year...doesn't sound like much, but some of these were big enough for a queen size bed. I also take the stroke factor into this, so 8 in one year is great I think...one day I will do one for myself...I want to make it from mostly scraps of everybody else's blankets...and it will be called the cover of many colors.....
I have been wanting to learn to knit also and I was just thinking I bet Youtube has a video or two about it. I know they have videos to teach you how to sew. I.
Knit, crochet, needlpoint, crewel, embroidery, punch needle, quill, tat, cook,cross stitch, macrame..
I know this IS an "OFF TOPIC"-.
Im just curious, wondering IF anyone here knits at all!?? Im "trying" to learn how. I have a friend at church that is supposed to start showing me how to knit- She doesnt know much though. I've tried to find people close by where I live and so far, no luck..
I got a kit with some needles and it says "I Taught myself How to Knit" BUT, I am NO GOOD at following.
, or videos, etc- I need to have someone show me how. Just wondering if anyone here lives close to me or HAS nay better ideas??.
Here are two websites for you. They have online videos and they are also on my local PBS station. They may be on your local station. The first one listed here is called "Knitting Daily" and the other one is "Knit and Crochet Today.".
You can learn to knit!!! Just don't give up, takes a little while to master. One you get it, just like.
To ride a bike, you never forget..
I crochet, it is a great hobby to do while watching tv. I started when I was a teenager, wanted to quit smoking and eating at the same time,,, had to keep the hands busy :) it works. you cant eat and crochet at the same time. I have always wanted to learn to knit but like you.
A book just not do it for me. good luck with it..
Last year for christmas my boys asked me for a home knitted scarf. So just picture, it's December, I am sitting in front of the computer with yarn and knitting needles and googled...how to knit a scarf. On the first I got about 1 inch done.......and I only gained 5 stitches lmao. So in a shoebox, I put the needles the one inch of scarf and the yarn and an I. O. U.
Both boys got the same thing lol - an inch of a scarf and an I.O.U...
I don't think this is off topic at all. It comes firmly under the what to do with your hands so you don't eat while watching TV topic. I don't knit, but I quilt some but don't do enough hand work to take care of the problem. So inspired by this post I started making yoyos tonight. It works!.
For you folks who crochet. I saw a book about crocheting socks. I'm not interested in picking up a new hobby, but if any of you folks make the pair that has the toe and heel removed (seriously - it shows and area around the arch & top of the foot connected to an area around the ankle). Anyway I'm offering to take the toes off your hands mine are always cold..
I'm not close to you but can suggest maybe watching a video on.
Or DIY network - Knitty Gritty.
My sis-in-law taught me how to knit, she is left handed so I knit left handed too... I'm right handed..
I just knitted a really easy shawl, I can send you the pattern if you want. All knit with one exception, adding one every other row. It comes out in a triangle..
My wife was blessed with a Czech grandmother who taught her "continental" style knitting. She knits and crochets flawless sweaters, baby sets, hats, etc.It is a great way to keep busy and mind off of food..
It is very frustrating at first, but incredibly rewarding in the end. I have an onine friend with a wonderful blog and he is a magician! Many good knit and crochet blogs, also groups at every knit shop! Here's a great website:.
I CROCHET tried knitting but could not get the hang of the needles :(..

I have been wanting to learn to knit, for VERY long TIME and finally, am able to. I want to do my work, and donate it to charities, to help other people...
