I am SO excited about learning to knit!!!
I have been crocheting since I was about 4 years old. Not well at first but I do remember my Grandmother teaching me then.
I can make a decent blanket now. I am quick and I love it.
But, I love to read the Christian novels by authors like Jeanette Oke and Loraine Snelling. They always include a bit about ladies knitting. So, I thought that if they can walk along beside the wagon trains knitting, surely I can learn to knit sitting in my rocker. lol
So, I looked at youtube and there were loads of knitting videos. WoW at the diverse methods.
So far, I have knitted a small barbie skirt, accidentally.:), a small washcloth--tight on one end and loose on the other half, and a near decent hand towel--intentionally smaller at one end so it would hang on a door pull--woohoo.
I am just so excited that I can actually knit. Don't know why it just amazes me so.
And it is fun too.
