It felt so wonderful to just knit and knit! I was addicted! Like you, I really liked the look of knitted fabrics, and wanted to create my own knitted items.
Now, 7 years later, I can knit any pattern I want. And I'm having so much fun with it! I am learning to crochet now, so I might be asking you for some pointers for that craft!
Hi Heather! Welcome!
You've come to the right place to help you learn to knit. Just start with small projects, and congratulate yourself with every single thing you make. You'll be making sweaters before you know it!
Ok. It is a deal! I'll help you crochet and drive you nuts asking silly knitting questions! Thanks for the welcome and welcome to Heather. Maybe we can encourage each other.
