Learning to Knit
The first step of My Knitting Journey
Following my discovery that you have to have the right sized needles for your wool, I finally had the right tools for the job and began my knitting journey.
On Sunday I knit two small pieces, following the clear instructions in Knitty Gritty, my new Knitting Bible.
First, I learned the knit stitch and how to add a new colour:
Then I learnt to purl and created the stocking stitch:
I got a bit confused with my rows and lost the stocking stitch in a couple of places, as you can tell!
If at first you don’t succeed ….
Try again! … Monday’s attempt at Stocking stitch – (almost) perfecto!
All in all, it’s coming along nicely and after my two days of knitting, I’m thoroughly enjoying it!
