I’ve gone and taught myself to knit! 😀
Dun dun DUN!
Well, technically I learned from a YouTube video, but there wasn’t anyone standing by showing me what I was doing wrong or telling me what to do. I wish there had been though! Knitting is no joke!
I still need a LOT more practice, and I know my form is absolutely horrid, but I am super proud of myself for finally doing it!
This video is so helpful and Chandi is adorable.
I was browsing through the crochet category on WordPress and I came across this blog. Thank you so much for finding this video!
I had tried to knit in the past, but the video I watched was sooooo confusing and I couldn’t even cast on. It was terrible. I hid my needles in my yarn bin (ottoman) never to be seen again.
It’s pretty slow-paced – much more so than crocheting, but I’m sure as I get more used to it and can hold the needles better it will get a lot faster! When I’m comfortable with the basic knit stitch, I’ll move onto the next thing – the purl! Can’t wait!
It’s a nice little break from crocheting, although I was basically taking a break already. ;P
Oh, and it turns out it’s more comfortable for me to knit left-handed even though I’m a righty which is funny because my sister is a lefty and knits right-handed! According to the video, it’s because I crochet and I’m used to holding the yarn with my left hand.
It’s fun to learn something new!
