I laughed at your comment about my magic cupboard. Actually it is magic I have crammed so much yarn in there I don't know whats hiding. I made two hats out of two sides [of just the front ] of a go-over I never finished. I didn't photograph them before I packed them up unfortunately.
Thanks Dawn, I knitted my first square with wool that my Mum bought and didn't use, so its just dong it in between the knitting projects that I have on the go at the moment. I haven't been living in Cape Town for very long, almost a year now and am still finding good yarn shops and material shops, it's difficult here it seems.
Hi Dawne. I am pleased to join the SC Forum and thank you for the welcome. I will certainly look forward to learning some interesting knitting techniques other than plain knitting squares. I do crochet a bit as well, but I like the knitted squares. Thank you for your warm welcome.
Sorry Dawne I have no idea what that is. I do not do Facebook, or Twitter or anything else like that. I just do my emails and I have my "blog" on this site but I do not blog anywhere else. Most of my friends are older than me and it has to be good old fashioned "telephone" with them they have not even progresses to having a computer in their homes.
Thanks for posting the link to the diamond in the square pattern.
On a similar vein, I have always wondered why the patterns are listed under the forum and not under the pattern section. Is it a computer problem ? (I'm not very computer literate )
Also, thanks for being such a great mod for the forum.
