I'm so happy, I can finally KNIT!!! WOO HOO!!! Well, a little patch anyways (see below) I've been trying to learn for the past couple of weeks using old little books, and stuff I printed from online. I don't know anybody who knits still, and the 2 I did knitted left handed (so it would get confusing, I'm righty
But I decided to splurge on the "Knitting Made Easy CD" (http://www.coatsandclark.com/find_a_product/publications/cd_roms.htm
- it shows the crochet & knit CD). I popped that CD into my computer watch it completely through and than watched it a 2nd time and actually did it along with the videos, and by the end of the day I could knit!!!
After that I made my first little patch, but the next day or something I made this one:
The Pink is the knit stitch (garter stitch, right??) than in the yellow I switched to the purl stitch (not sure what it's called when it's just the purl stitch) and to end it off I switched to the stockinette stitch.
That patch was a lot better than my first one, my ends are to big...so it gets kinda loose on the ends but this patch was a lot better!
But if you definately want to learn knitting, I would recommend that CD. I'm more of a watching person in order to learn something. I can't read how to do stuff and than do it, I get to confused
It also has 20 patterns on the CD. I'm not sure if the crochet one is good, but I taught myself crochet
and the stuff I didn't get I asked a friend to help exlpain it.
Sorry I sound over excited, BUT I AM!!! But now, I just gotta find an easy first project, any ideas???
