       I just started knitting and was wondering if any other bunny lovers were also knitters? Any good websites to share? I found and joined http://www.ravelry.com and it is excellent!

      OOOOO ME! ME!

      I love knitting! I’m working on a scarf right now, a mod. of this pattern: http://knitting.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XJ/Ya&zTi=1&sdn=knitting&cdn=hobbies&tm=11&f=11&tt=14&bt=0&bts=0&zu=http%3A//www.dailyknitter.com/iris.html  It looks cool, but it’s easy peasy

      There are some fun patterns on about.com. I literally just google “free knitting patterns for (insert what you want to knit, afghan, hat, scarf, etc)” and I can usually find something that strikes my fancy. When you find a pattern on a random website though, MAKE SURE to bookmark it. I had one heck of a time trying to find an afghan pattern after my computer crashed. I’d already started the afghan but couldn’t remember the pattern well enough to do it from memory so I was in a pickle, lol. It took me two hours of searching online and going through my browser history to find it again.

      Also, I’m a member of lionbrand.com. There are a bunch of fun free patterns on there, and the best part is they tell you which yarns to buy and how much so that your piece comes out just like it’s supposed to. I love lion brand yarn too, so much softer and nicer than some of the cheap stuff you can find at any old craft store (Lion Brand is sold in craft stores though, fyi). The cheap stuff is good to piddle fart around with when you’re trying to learn new stitches though.

      Does it count if I don’t know how but I really want to learn ? One of my friends got these fantastic knit dishcloths for her bridal shower, and I’ve been dying to learn how to make them, but I don’t know what kind of yarn to use for that. Is there a special kind that is good for dishcloths?

      I like making scarfs using the “nifty knitter”. They are super easy to use and fun. They make great gifts, the knitters and scarfs

      Most of my female friends knit. not me. I’m not much of a girly girl, except for Hello Kitty and bunnies lol. The hubby says if I take up knitting, he may have to rethink this whole marriage deal

      You can get the Bernat Handicrafter’s cotton for that  (Wal-Mart has it). It lasts well.

      edit: MooBunnay, I had this book out from my library many times. I want to buy it at some point. You might like to check it out.

      you can click on the book and see inside

      Hehehe. My grandma taught me the basics years ago, but since then, I’ve been learning some more advanced techniques online. Youtube videos are great too for learning how to knit – it’s a lot easier for me to see something being done than doing it from a written description.

      MB your hubby’s comment about you taking up knitting made me laugh. My bf loves that I’m into the crafty stuff – he gets to benefit from my scarves etc that I make! I’ve always been a girly girl (though I’ve spent my fair share of time shoveling horse poop )

      He likes me being crafty, but so many of his friends wives have taken up knitting, and it has taken over. lol. He doesn’t want a spinning wheel in his front room

      Just think Monkeybun, if you get a spinning wheel, it’s a perfect excuse to get a beautiful angora bunny!

      hooty, do you use your rabbit’s fur?

      My Mops has angora wool on him in places but because he’s a mix the fiber is less silken and more cottony. I was thinking of using it as a batting for mittens.

      Oh, I don’t spin. I’ve definitely thought about it though. There was a time I was considering collecting Fel’s fur and finding a spinner to whom I could give it… He only has the mane and skirt fluff though, so it would take FOREVER!

      You can use it unspun for quilting. It does take time, though, to have enough. I reallly would love to make a mini quilt for Mops stuffed with his own fibers.

      *looks around for lizzieknittybun*

      I wonder if you can use the fur/wool for needle felting? Sage Cat does needlefelting (she just posted her felt rabbits in the How big is your bunny thread). I thought it be cool to make felt rabbits from actual shedded fur.

      I think, knitting and bunnies are a perfect match. I looked through my albums to find this photo from when my Lint was sick. He was so cold… and he stayed in this knit sack all night. It was supposed to be a cover for a hot water bottle but it has become my “sick bunny pouch”.

      Monkey size would take like a half hour to knit!

      I love knitting, I really do. It’s not a social thing for me, more a destressing time. Plus, people always have yarn scraps to give away so it is a way to save money, too.

      I made this outfit for my dog. It’s a flashy patch work but I wanted her to stand out on the road.

      Thats so cute! I would really like to learn how to knit…anyone know any good websites that give super easy instructions on how to do it? I have some books but it all looks like another language! Hah.

      Kiley, I find knitting instructions hard to read, too. Once you know the basics, though, you can invent your own stuff.

      Here is a site that’s not too confusing.

      http://www.knittinghelp.com/

      but the Knifty Knitter that Lintini mentioned is as easy as pie. You could start some projects with a loom like that.

      Yeah, I just started a hat with one of those round looms. It’s pretty cool. Thanks for the site
