Dear Carrie, you are a wonderful and enjoyable knitting teacher ! I am really thankful I came across your lessons on Curious. I can't believe how much I've learned. Hope you teach additional classes. I have watched knitting shows on TV and haven't learned nearly as much. I feel as if I have my own personal knitting tutor right at the tip of my I Pad ! Well, I guess I practically do. Please keep up the GREAT work, and "Happy knitting" to you, too. Sheryl Lybrand , Aiken, SC

Carrie, I am considering buying your lessons..Although watching your knitting, I'm not sure if my Grandmother taught me to knit and crochet left handed.. She was ampidextrious,, (spelling here)..... Lori

I'm right-handed and I knit from my left needle to my right needle. Does that make any sense? Essentially, my 'project' is always on my right. I know people who knit the other way. Happy knitting!

Thanks; I have never seen this before and it will come in handy when I finish the yoga bag I am working on.
Carrie Knits
I would LOVE to see the yoga bag when you're finished! Happy knitting!

I cannot find shoe laces that suit me. I will try this with some imported cashmere, soy and cotton yarn from China.

Great idea! I didn't even think of that! I hope they turn out well and work great!
