I've written about Caroline before, and her great blog and YouTube channel. The other day she began a video series to teach another blog friend how to knit, inviting us all along. I was game! I love learning new things...a trait fostered by my Grandma Val. She visited a couple times a year when I was growing up and she always brought some new craft to teach me. I have fond memories of basket making, crochet, different Christmas ornaments...all kinds of crafty endeavors!
So learning to knit is right up my alley! In her first video, Caroline gave us a supply list and I had no problem finding the needed yarn and needles. Thanks, to Pixie at David's Yarn in Edmond, OK!
Now, I know one way to "cast on."
I also learned how to do the knit stitch! My tension is terrible but better than the first twenty times I knitted this swatch! Practise, practise.
Ha! Just what I need, another hobby, right? I may never progress to more than dishcloths but I'm having fun learning. Want to join in?
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
