Knitting is a skill I have been wanting to hone for quite some time. I actually tried to knit long before I started to crochet, but for whatever reason, crochet stuck and knitting didn’t. A couple Christmas’s ago, I got the Knitting Answer Book and it has sat on the shelf with a couple other crafty books I own. That is, until the end of last year. I picked up that book and with it’s help (and a bit of help from you tube), I mastered a couple different cast-ons, knitting and purling. A friend of mine that was also coming from knowing how to crochet before she learned to knit recommended using the continental method of knitting because it seems to translate from crochet to knitting better using that method.
Alright so there’s the backstory. I very much wanted to make some leg warmers, especially these that I found on pinterest. The pattern rated them as easy so surely I could make them. I bought the necessary tools and set to work. And set to work again. And again. And once more.
Sigh. Here is my latest effort. Looks a little wonky to me. Such tiny needles! And tiny yarn! Looks like I’ll be starting over again.
Since I didn’t want to give up, (I am DETERMINED to become a knitter) I decided to try another pattern, the honey cowl, which I saw on a friend’s blog (the same friend that has been advising me on knitting this whole time). I’ve only knit a couple of rows but it is going so much smoother and I can SEE my progress! Could be the bigger needles, or the thicker yarn. . . But I feel like this is something I may actually be able to complete! Of course, I can already see some of the weird spots, but that’s part of the charm of the first thing you knit yourself – the mistakes.
I really want to learn how to knit socks (I know, totally ridiculous) but I have a feeling that’s a ways off.
If you knit, what was your first completed knitting project? And any recommendations for me?
