Here is a nice tutorial for beginers, with pictures
Maybe someone here can share a favourite free pattern?
Thanks so much. I just wanna make a pair of socks, maybe for one of my teenaged daughters. I'll check out the links. Much appreciated!
The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster.
Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.
Blocks in Blocks Afgan for Taz
Pet snuggles for charity
BonBons fingerless mitts for Sarah
Dorm socks for Skye-
Dallas Cowboys Man Hat for John-
and as always, dish cloths.
