    I only knit and mostly make Aran sweaters. Occasionally I will make something with a picture pattern.

    `some years ago I had some lovely shearling sheep (! Year old) and when they were shorn I saved the fleeces and sent them away to be spun. In the bundle were two black fleeces, which are not actually black but a wonderful varieties of grey which I thought would be great for knitting.

    When I got the sack of spun wool back it was all grey - they had mixed the black fleeces in with the white. The sack was about 3 feet wide and 6 feet in height and packed with skeins of the stuff.

    It was ideal to knit Aran sweaters with as it still contained a lot of lanolin (great for your hands) but, by the time you have knitted eleven large sweaters of the same wool it get to grate on your nerves (at least it did mine!)

    I gave it away, as back then there was no E-bay!

    My mother is a fantastic knitter. As she is now 92 and has arthritis in her thumbs she cannot take the weight of larger sweaters so just knits the most fantastic baby layettes always with the most intricate patterns.

    I knit a lot, crochet a little, spin a little, dye a little and intend to dig my cross stitch supplies out of storage. I start a lot of projects but don't finish very many lol. I haven't made any horse stuff yet but have been thinking of it, had been thinking of doing a felted saddle pad too :) Currently on the needles I have a hat, three baby blankets and have about a dozen projects planned. Here are a couple of the things I have done...

    Oh holy big pictures batman, let me see if I can do something about that...

    I knit and crotchet. Mostly hats, scarves, blankets, shawls and wash clothes.

    Yes!!! Love crochet (although I'm dreadful at knitting, I could never get the perl stitch). I will post up pics of my crochet doilies when I get home. I used to do it on the bus to uni (and nearly poke out the eye of the person next to me).

    I think I bought a pattern for a horse amigurumi a while back but never got to actually making it. Anyone else ever knitted/crocheted horse-related things?

    Hi, I've been crocheting since I was twelve or so (I'm sixteen now). I crocheted this horse for my sister when I was fourteen. I modeled it after her favorite lesson pony. Didn't have any buttons I liked so just crocheted the eyes and sewed them on.
    By the way, those little colorful things in her ears are supposed to be ear stuffies, because her pony likes peace and quiet . Not sure how I did them.
    Here is the pattern if anyone would like it. It's free and pretty easy to follow. Also comes with directions for a saddle and bridle for it:

    These are some pictures I took of it. If I did it again, I would make the neck a bit shorter and the head a bit smaller.

    I had a bout of knitting again recently (it's more like bout-like thing to me). Couldn't just resist all of those cute balls of wool in stores. This time I ended up to a pretty decent pair of mittens & fingerless gloves:
