Le Toque! Tres chic?

Ok, maybe not, but it will keep me warm on chilly mornings while walking the dogs . . .

What a cute hat. I wish I could knit but I'm hopeless with that kind of thing.

Very nice! And you finished it so quickly. It's on my 101 in 1001 list to learn how to knit. Ugh, I can't even cast on. Any tips?

mishy - I took a class through a local Parks and Recreation program, but if you find a local yarn shop, they will probably offer beginning classes. The beginner books I like best are Knitting for Dummies and the Stitch and Bitch Handbook. I still refer to them when I have a problem. Give it a try!

great touque!

My knitting is horrible. Too much tension (story of my life) and the square ends up tight and awful.

I've had better luck with crocheting. I've even made granny squares.

A woman offered to make me knitted go-go boy pants one time, but I was nervous about the holes and getting arrested.

Love that, and it appears to be knit with my favorite yarn even!

mish - In Toronto, you have access to knitting celebrities to teach you to knit. I'm telling you, you are set up perfectly to learn this craft.

LA, What do you mean, 'knitting celebrities'? Is George Clooney going to sit down with me and teach me how to knit one and purl two? Because that would be awesome. Seriously though, what do you mean, celebrities?

Mishy - I mean that in the knitting and fiber world, there are celebrities. They are knit pattern designers, yarn company owners, and writers/editors of knitting books/websites/blogs. For example, the editor of www.knitty.com, Amy Singer, is from Toronto. She's a total knitting superstar.
