Baby Knitters

So a couple of weeks ago, I decided to teach myself how to knit. I bought a beginner’s knitting book, some yarn and a knitting needle. At first, I was terrible. I could not do anything. The book was confusing, my yarn was tangled and the needles pricked. However with the help of a couple of other books and youtube (love youtube now)

Now a couple of weeks later, I’ve knitted my first scarf:

The point of all this is that even when something is hard, harder than you think you can accomplish, success is still possible. You just have to be willing to put in the work.

I’ve knitted every day since that first day. Eventually I could cast on and knit my first stitch. Now I can purl as well and I’m starting to learn the other stitches.  I don’t spend a lot of time on it, but a few rows here and there add up and I am getting better.

Beware I might post about my knitting here and there, just to warn you!

Another good resource for knitting

Does anyone else have knitting resources they want to share?
