Hey everyone!

My shop is Crow Shea!

It started out by me learning to crochet so I could make my kids hats for the winter. THEN people noticed them and asked me to make them for their kids, and then strangers asked where my hats came from and I got a few orders that way! So I started my facebook page!

I own MoonShadow Threads which isn't really around anymore... Well it is, but I am taking an extended break from it due to personal issues. BUT I plan on getting it back up and running soon. I did some crochet but I am mostly known for my Clay covered crochet hooks. You've probably seen them on Youtube's Bobwilson123 & Yolanda's crochet channels.

    Hello! Welcome to the knitter's forum. Make yourself at home, feel free to ask questions, start discussions, and make some friends. I will help in any way that I can. I taught myself to knit about 20 years ago, still learning new techniques, and excited to be a part of this group!

    Yes! We could do that. Would videos work for that? Video and text? What would be preferred and most helpful? I could do a new technique a week. Start out with simple, straight-forward projects.

    Awesome! That is one area of knitting that I'm not very good at yet. I'll conquer it someday. Smile

    Looks great! I started a hat, and my tension with the color changes were too tight, so I need to work on my tension. I'd love to try it again so I could have the hat for Winter. Smile

    Crochet does go so much faster! I love the look of knitted items so much, and I love that bag. I finally conquered cables this year. :)This mosaic hat is one of my favorites, of the few things I've made for myself. Wink

    I totally get it about that! I rarely keep anything I knit except for dishrags and mitties. Cables are fun, and I think that is a tea cozy..lol..I had to do a double take too, but it would be smart as a bag, I agree!

    It is! It looked intimidating, but once I read through the pattern, I realized how simple it was! Found it on Ravelry, and the pattern is called Mermaid Slouchy Tam Smile

    I learned loom knitting before any of the other wonderful yarn techniques, and I mostly crochet now, but at this moment I have a ruffle scarf on my needles and just finished a fair aisle hat with Nature's choice cotton, I'm so please with it, I'm not sure I can part with it :-D

    I have found that i'm much better at knitting on a loom! Smile I am slowly getting better on bamboo needles and I figured out how to fair isle on the loom, I finished one hat and next is a cowl, I want to do fingerless gloves, but I know I can't do those on a loom, so I may have a million questions for the gurus! :-D

    Hi there!
    I'm still learning to knit. I asked and received one of those Learn to Knit kits for Christmas a few years back. I guess it's been about 5 years now? Anyway, for whatever reason I just about jumped right in with dpn's and socks. I love Very Pink dot com and her videos. The pair of socks I love making best came from her.
    Presently, I just finished putting together my first knit baby sweater with a hood but am thinking my button selection may not work. I've pulled up a tutorial on how to crochet buttons so I can make my own. It was almost fully knit! Wink
