  1. sandra says

    I have been knitting clothing for better than 30 yrs. My favorites are sweaters and shawls 🙂

  2. says

    I haven’t knit anything for myself yet, but I intend to ’cause I have a large stash of yarn! I’ve mostly made items for other people. I’d love to win this prize; Michaels is a favourite store to go craft shopping, whether it’s yarn, beads, clay, or anything else that catches my eye.

  3. Judy Dalton says

    I knit mostly for my family and friends, but occaisionally I sneak in a sweater for myself, or a trendy little hat.

  4. Heidi Kirsch says

    I do knit wearables, but so far the only sweater is the Einstein Sweater from the Sally Melville knit book. Truly amazing and absolutely no finishing. One piece just fits onto another. The only thing that I did different was that I added patch pockets after. I have a house full of hats, scarves, mittens, gloves. When I am working on a hard project and get frustrated, I make a small one like a hat to make myself feel more skilled.

  5. Ladybug says

    I don’t knit, but I do crochet. I have not crocheted any wearables. I have made purses, bags, backpacks and cell phone cases.

  6. Brenda Fitcher says

    I enjoy knitting, crocheting, and sewing. I knitted a poncho when I was a teenager that I loved and was so proud to wear. I couldn’t wait for people to compliment the poncho so I could say I made it. Over the years, I have made numerous knitted scarves and blankets for my bed. I feel a great sense of accomplishment when my hands produce beautiful knitted items that I wear with pride.

  7. Kenneth Johns says

    I don’t knit, but my wife does! I love it when she knits for me. I want a really nice sweater next.

  8. Judi says

    I can’t knit very well. I do crochet anything and everything. Have made sweaters, ponchos, baby outfits and socks as far as wearables go. I would love the chance to have “free” money for Michaels. The problem would be oh, my what to pick. LOL.

  9. Pat says

    My mother taught me to knit at age 10. Although I do occasionally knit for myself (I have a cable knit sweater nearly completed) now I most often find myself knitting baby gifts for the newest generation of grand nieces and nephews. I love working on these tiny garments and have a number of favorite patterns. I am finding recently, however, the need to find new patterns because the favorites that I made for one generation have been saved and handed down to the next. How gratifying to know that the work in these gifts was appreciated and valued.

  10. Sammy Mayland says

    I have never knitted anything though I have always wanted to learn. When ever I go to the craft store I always end up looking in the how to knit books that are available but can never bring myself to buy one or any other material to get started. Money is tight around here right now and I lean more towards cheap (if not free) craft idea’s.

  11. Sherie Guillory says

    I’m learning to knit, but I have made several crochet items for myself, including hats and shawls. I taught myself to crochet, and now I’m teaching myself to knit and needle/shuttle tatting!

  12. says

    I tried to learn to knit but never got the hang of it, did learn to crochet from my mother-in-law and I made her a afghan called “Mauve Twist” because even though she was in failing health she managed to make all 8 of her grandchildren an afghan and I wanted to make one for her as she always gave and never got in return. I am now teaching my granddaughters to crochet.

  13. Elizabeth Gladden says

    I don’t know at this moment. I am in the process of learning along with refreshing my crocheting skills.

  14. Vicki Dutton says

    I don’t know how to knit. But I use yarn for many projects. I wear pins, sometimes, I’ve made with yarn.

  15. Carmen says

    Unfortunately I never learned to knit….My daughters are interested in it so it may be something they will learn and teach me:)

  16. Christina Marie says

    I would like to win this so i can get more yarn to make my children some blankets as well as my 4 nephews..

  17. Jolene Turner says

    I also do not knit but I do crochet. I have crocheted many scarves, hats, ponchos, throws and even bedspreads for relatives and myself. I love crocheting.

  18. E..B.Way. says

    I love quilting and Floral projects for all occasions and would certainly love to win something. Being a senior and on a fixed income it’s not always easy to but things unless it’s a good sale!

  19. Linda Behret says

    I have made sweaters on my knitting machine, and am currently working on a hand-knit vest! Hope I will be able to wear it soon!

  20. Mer Lohnes says

    I’m starting to learn how to knit. My mom bought me my first knitting needle and some bright green thread. I want to learn how to knit baby hats (for my sweet 1 year old) and baby blankets 🙂

  21. Laurie Waugh says

    I have never mastered knitting clothing. Would love to take lessons but at this time in my life I can’t afford any extras. I have the yarn and the needles but not the know how.

  22. Linda Hylton says


    I love to crochet and knit. Creating with my hands goes a long ways. I love to create things and turn them into beauty through and through.
