You still here? lol Knitting is great, just learn the european way and not the american way. It's so much more efficient. I usually give everything away so no pictures. I do want to get onto knitting some bee stuff this winter. So did you get started on something or what?  :smile:
I'd rather be playing with venomous insects
GO BEES!

I like the chicken bald eagle.  My wife has done both but knitted last.  My daugter who is an eye doctor did some crocheting.
Cheers

I knit and crochet.  I find I have preferences for one or the other based on the project and not in general.

Alasdair Q has the MOST marvelous patterns and book.  I was able to take a class from him last year after knitting items from his book for a year or two.

I am dmd on Revelry if anyone uses that.

Yep more efficient, I've never been able to convert anyone.

Actually it's good to know both.  Useful if you ever want to do Fair Isle (two stranded) knitting.

Bees distracted me from my afghan.  Now that I'm waiting for swarms to arrive at my bait hives, I've gotten restarted.   :smile:
