So I’m off on a new adventure, something I hope sidetracks me enough to take me away from my computer screen. I’ve been surrounded by amazingly talented knitters over the past couple years, but never thought it was “for me”. Something has ignited an interest in me and now I’m on a mission to teach myself the basics of knitting. I really only have interest in knitting scarves at the moment, but if I become addicted, like most knitters tell me I will, I may try other items.
Over Christmas break I tapped into the resources shared by my dear friend, Emmadime. Emma said one of her favorite knitting websites was Wool and The Gang, and oh boy…she was right on. This website single-handedly taught me the basic stitches and how to start your first project. Amazing resource for any of you looking for some video tutorials to guide you through the process.
So far, I’m having fun.
Here are some images of knitted items that have gotten me excited to try something new. Cable knits are lovely aren’t they?? :)
