Starting Out-feeling overwhelmed
You may remember by post from earlier this week about finally learning how to knit. I picked up one of Debbie Stoller's books and have read and re-read the information. I finally got the opportunity to go out and get some supplies and just had a terrible time. I first went to a local yarn shop and was completely ignored. I looked around but ended up leaving shortly after because I just didn't know where to start. I then went to Michael's and looked around but again I was completely unsure. I have chosen two projects to start with the garter stitch scarf and a dish cloth. I have not unwrapped anything and still have the receipt if I didn't make the right purchases. Will these supplies work?
For the scarf: Susan Bates silvalume 10inch 10US needles and
Lions Brand Homespun yarn in quartz
For the dish cloth: Clover no8 9inch bamboo needles and
Sugar 'n cream Twist yarn in Country Twists
Thanks so much for the help.
