Im FailedFae on Ravelry.
Im a knitter, more than anything but I'd love to learn how to crochet, which is why I joined. (I can only do single crochet(
Partly, because crochet is so useful for finishing off knitted projects. But also, because every time I'm on Ravelry I see amazing things i like that are crochet patterns! :)
i think you need to be invited to join? i'm not too familiar with ravelry...
so let me know your ravelry username in this post and i'll invite you!
I'm Mandy, I found this community through a post over on novice_knitters and figured I'd head on over here as well. I'm 19, and attending art college in Savannah, GA. I'm GrapefruitGeek on Ravelry, if anyone wanted to look me up over there.
I've been knitting for just around a year, but crochet for about 4 now. I'm not super skilled in reading crochet patterns, but I can hopefully help with some of the abbreviations or just 'how does this stitch work?' Feel free to ping me if you have questions on either knitting or crochet!
EDIT: oh my gosh guys, I'm such a dork. My Ravelry name is GrapefruitGeek. Not Goosegeek. I'm sorry if this caused any confusion, wow I can't believe I did that.
So, I asked this in my previous entry but I'd like to make a Resource Post to save for memories/tag so new members can reference this post.
Please comment with books, links, videos that you have found helpful.
I'll probably put some links and books on the Community Info page as well.
Thanks so much everyone, and happy hooking! :)
Anyway, I hope you guys are all having a good night. Bye for now. :)
Can anyone recommend a good place to see videos or anything that can help me to NOT lose my chains? I have some very lopsided practice bits because I can't seem to get this part down.
Thanks for your help, and I look forward to learning along with and from many of you!!
Perhaps lj_novice_crochet - I'm nekomich over at Ravelry.
that being said, I will admit that part of the reason I haven't focused as much as I would have liked to is due to me finding knitting a lot easier.
My sister on the other hand is the complete opposite; she loves to crochet and struggles with knitting ( I think that's due to her being left-handed).
Anyhoe, once I'm finished with my current knitting projects, I will recommence learning to crochet..
Anyone got any tips on how to maintain a constant tension when crocheting?
my lack in ability to do that also puts me off >_<.
Thanks for setting this community up. I've picked up lots of tips fromt he novice_knitters one, hopefullyt his will be just as useful!
