Sooo i’ve been learning to knit! Remember this post from earlier in the week?? That was my first successful scarf – yippee happy dance – just don’t look too closely hehehe
It started off frustrating – but i think i’m getting the hang of it now, and i’ve already made myself 4 scarves! yay! They are certainly not perfect, and full of their fair share of mistakes, but nothing that will stop me from wearing them hehe
I just want to say thank you so much to everyone who gave me suggestions for good knitting sites and tutorials/videos etc. You have no idea how helpful you were! And it’s just been so fun to learn!
For me, i had a lot of trouble following pictures in books – but i found some wonderful video tutorials on knitpicks that were the real breakthrough for me. Incase anyone else is learning I thought i’d share some of my favourite ones.
- Casting on – Video tutorial
- Knit stitch – Video tutorial for continental method ( i found this method easier because it reminded me of crocheting, which i’m familiar with)
- Purl stitch – Video tutorial for continental method
- Binding off – Video tutorial
