Right, well, here's the thing: this woman who used to be my neighbor moved recently and she threw out/ gave away a bunch of her stuff. Among this stuff, (because you can better believe that I, being a Craftster addict, could not bear to throw any of it away), was her knitting bag. She used to knit a lot, I think, but it hurts her hands now, so she said I could have it.
I don't knit.
Not that I don't want to-- I really do. It's just that no one in my family knits, so I've never been taught. In fact, I've never even seen anyone knit. So I have this bag FULL of needles. (Including a very handy carrying case that has 2 needles of each size from 1 to 11). Where should I begin? I found instructions on knitting on various websites, but none of them are very specific.
For instance, what size should I start with? Does it matter what sort of yarn I buy? Should I make a scarf first, or is that a bit ambitious?
Is the curved needle in the bag supposed to be curved, or did someone sit on it?
Obviously, I am terribly lost, which is why I come to you, Craftster Geniuses, for help.
