Let me just start by saying, I have been an avid crocheter for over 35 years now. Crochet to me is just second nature. Knitting, on the other hand . . . is definitely like learning a new language. But, I am getting the hang of it! I am even beginning to understand charts! With more study and practice, I hope to create many lovely things.
I have no idea if this is going to be a project . . . or just practice. I guess it would make a nice scarf.
I have had this little “Leisure Arts little books” booklet Beginner’s Guide KNIT STITCHES & EASY PROJECTS in my library for several years now. I towed it out a while back and I have been studying it, in-between other knit projects. Here’s what I have gotten out of it so far . . .
What I have learned is that it isn’t as difficult as I thought it was. I have since found out that placing stitch markers along the repetitions would help keep my place throughout the pattern. Before I continue, I will place them.
Here is a knitting magazine I recently purchased (available at your local newsstand until 3/25/13) published by loveofknitting.com
This has proved to be a very helpful article . . .
I can’t wait to get going on some swatches! Hmmm, if I am very brave, maybe an afghan or pretty throw will be in my future.
Well, that’s it! Thanks, as always, for letting me share! I am, once again, in my ‘happy place’. (This is how I stay sane.) *sigh*
