Knitting Buddies

Hello ladies. It is nice to see how many of you are interested in learning how to knit or to start knitting again. Many of you did not leave an e-mail address so, at this time, I have posted only those of you that provided an e-mail in their comments. I am a little short on mentors and I am sending out a call for more out there. Rose from Illawara, offered to help up to three learners but did not provide an e-mail address I have given you two and hope that you can give me, as well as your learners, an e-mail address. If you would like to join the list and be paired with an available mentor or learner, please e-mail me (Sharon) at cdetroyes at yahoo dot com. I look forward to hearing from you. I will be away for a week as I am going on a road trip with DD S to travel 700 miles to visit DD G who has just moved into a new home in a new city, and help her get moved in and organized. I will be back early next week. If you want to be added to the list as either a learner or a mentor, don't forget to e-mail me! As a reminder, the deadline for the pin cushion and water bottle holder swap is September 6th. Update: Thanks Rose !
Cheers, Sharon

  1. I think I might be able to help as a mentor.


  2. Here's my email:

    I'm happy to help!

  3. Oh wow! This knitting buddies idea is amazing. Good for you to host it here, Rhonda. I personally find that helps a bunch!

  4. Hi Sharon, Laura and Heather,

    My e-mail address is:
    rosmar at

  5. Question not related to knitting--have you used liquid castile soap as a shampoo?

    I've used it for 3 days now and my hair feels heavy like I have product or conditioner in it. The recipe I used: 1/4 cup liquid castile soap, 1/4 cup water, 1/2 tsp. light veg oil. Maybe I need to dilute it further.

  6. Oh my! I am coming in late on this. Is it too late to sign up for the Knitting Buddies group? I am a learner and knitting was one of my main things to learn as autumn approaches.

  7. Ang-email me (Sharon cdetroyes at yahoo dot com) and I will match you with a mentor

  8. Now that there are quite a few people knitting, could we have a knitted dishcloth swap???

  9. Hi,

    If it is not way too late, I would like to sign-up as a learner.
