Cowart's Common Room
Knitting Club

With knitting making such a comeback, and many of us knitting again, would it be an idea to have a knitting club where we could post sites, talk about projects, get advice and show finished products.

Hah! That would be good, and then I can be a nuisance and pick your brains!

Frances's Avatar This is a fine idea, and how I do wish that I could find the time to contribute.

Am having trouble even finding time for various knitting projects, but the enthusiasm is still there.

Tiggywinkle's Avatar While on this topic, I was just looking at The Sewing Club and The Craft Club, and really they are pathetic for a site with so many talented and creative people. Now that people are able to post photos in the forums, it would be nice to see some projects in progress etc, maybe quilting, dressmaking etc. Come on, liven it up girls! We could have a craft,sewing,and knitting section in the photography Club for finished items including those taken from blogs or the market place. They would look so pretty, and maybe a section for treasures found. It must be the good weather, I'm bursting with ideas.

Blackbird's Avatar I would love a Knitting Club or Needlework Club- it didn't seem like a good fit under craft or sewing.

I've been doing quite a bit of knitting but have never taken any pictures of it. But, now, I'll start to do it. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else is knitting.

Frances's Avatar Tiggy and Blackbird,

I think your enthusiasm will win others over to this idea. Love the idea of having pictures of the projects.

Frances's Avatar Pipany, sorry ... did not see your post before leaving my message!

I know you are also a keen knitter. (I have half a sock completed ... wonder if I will ever finish it and its mate.)

Pondside's Avatar Okay, Tiggy - I've taken up your challenge and posted something in the sewing forum. I had to figure out how to post a photo, but managed with Jacko's excellent instructions.
Let's see some more projects. How about curtains, Milla?

Lily's Avatar Lovely idea, just tried taking a photo of latest project, sadly not very good at pics , so it looks as if intended for very wide/short person.

Westerwitch's Avatar I will add a knitting club - but Tiggy is right the others have been sadly neglected . . . Crying or Very sad But that looks set to change . . .
