I knit. I do! Barely, but I can officially get my yarn to stay together. I am currently working on my first project: a scarf who's function will obviously be warmth and not high-fashion. After I master the scarf, I am going to move on to bigger and better things: making a blanket to wrap my cute little winter-babe in. He will be arriving in the coldest of Utah months: January. It better be warm and cozy.
I taught myself to knit. It is true. I had great plans to have my mother, the master, teach me while she was in town...but we were too busy talking to get any real crafting in. (I love having an excuse to fly to Hawaii, but it is hard having her live so far away!)
I did a lot of research to get started and then later to correct mistakes. (Which were many...) Here are two great resources I found:
Teach Yourself Visually Knitting - A FABULOUS book for the visual learner like myself. It gives wonderful, full color, step-by-step pictures to walk you through every step of the way. Also...there are some pretty patterns in the back that are perfect for beginners. (One of which is the blanket I plan on working on next...)
Knitting Help - If you are like me, and are still messing up even with full color, step-by-step pictures because you need to see knitting in action, this is the site for you. It offers wonderful video tutorials that are really what made it click for me.
Good luck with your knitting endeavors! If you know of any great resources and feel inclined to share, please do. I'll be so grateful!
