Many of my friends knit, and my sister-in-law is convinced she will bring me over to “the dark side”.
I will admit, I like the look of knitted clothing garments more than crochet items.
So I thought, time to give it a try!
I purchased a Craftsy.com class and, although I like the class, I learned that I like the English method more than the Continental method. Since the class is taught in the Continental method, I decided to purchase a few books to learn the basics and then use the class for the “putting it all together” project.
I purchased the following books:
Boye – I Taught Myself to Knit
Learn to Knit, Love to Knit
First Time Knitting: The Absolute Beginner’s Guide
The third book is the book I liked the best:
I am doing well with the long-tail cast on and am currently practicing the knit stitch.
Making a simple scarf, cast on 20 stitches with bulky yarn.
So far, so good!
I don’t think my yarn will make a complete scarf, so I’ll be using a second color and making a color block scarf.
This way, I’ll learn how to join yarn.
Happy Knitting and Crocheting!
