    That's really funny Nessa, lucky she was able to control herself. I'm nearly finished second square which I've covered with B's. If no-one else wants the job I'm happy to volunteer to sew the squares together, my email is [email protected] , for when you're needing my address.

    Almost finished my first!

    Nessa - People try to take me knitting all the time - I taught myself and apparently do it in reverse or something and people are always commenting when they see me do it

    Also, knitting letters and even pictures in is really easy to do - just really difficult to explain. But I will give it a go

    1. Knit the square or whatever as you normally would.
    2. Once the garment/square is completed treat it more life a tappestry or a cross stitch (sort of). get a length of yarn that you want the letter to be on a needle that you would use to sew the garment together (knitting needle didn't make sense!) and then simply follow the original stitches that you knitted. For example if you think of a stitch in your completed knitting as an upside down horseshoe you would bring your needle up through your knitting at the base of the horse shoe, round behind the base of the stitch above and then back down at the other base of the horse shoe. This completes one stitch and then you come up at the base of the next horse shoe. I am sure that I would have a picture of it somewhere in my library of patterns - anyone who is interested just email me and I will scan it and send it back.

    Penny - thanks for volunteering - I will email you

    Happy knitting everyone

    Thats great guys. Thanks for volunteering Penny I was hoping someone would I am just flat out at the moment. Nessa don't worried I was taught how to knit and found it difficult so I developed my own style it still came out the same in the end but my teacher refused to teach me unless I did it her way. I will email you penny.

    Knitting and crochet are highly addictive, I only started about 3 years ago but haven't looked back. My DH calls it crochet madness. The more you practice the better you'll get and the more addicted you'll be.

    I am hoping I am doing ok, I worry cause it doesnt look perfect, but its not to bad I dont think hmmm but what would I know LOL, so I will send it and if its not okay I really wont be offended at all if its not used, I dont want to make the blanket look cruddy hehehehehe,

    I am almost finished my first square YAY and that hasnt taken me long at all, I will start another one too its been great practice thats for sure, I really dont want to loose it this time ie; the whole knitting flow LOL, as I started knitting a few years back but my son got to it and pulled it apart and I left it at that and couldnt for the life of me work out how to start it again so this time I have got my groove back hehehe and I dont want to loose it I just want to get better,

    I want to get a book of baby patterns that use this gorgeous velvet wool and it also incorperated the feathers in to some of the peices of clothing, the lady said its very much a great place for a begginer to start,

    so perhaps next week I will get that as I want to actally make something now I just have a hard time understanding the patterns, but really want to see something I have started and finished.

    thanks for the motivation girls

    Hi all, it doesn't matter if they are not perfect i'm sure who ever gets the blanket will be glad to have something to keep them warm during the cold winter months. Now if you have a massive hole that takes up the whole square we may need to worry LOL Just do you best.

    I'm sure our blanket will be beautiful and much appreciated so don't worry too much about a few dropped stitches. I've just started no.3.

    Yay Nessa! Feels good doesn't it?
    I wish I was super woman Amym, I have so many projects started and trying to find time to finish them all is not fun.
    After I've finished this square I'm going to do something else so you'll have a chance to catch up mrsmac.
