In stitches


I took myself on an artist's date at Michael's last week. For us creative types, that place is like a candy store! I got all kinds of ideas just walking around, checking out the various arts and crafts supplies. I found myself drawn to the knitting accoutrements (all that pretty yarn!), and ended up purchasing knitting needles and several balls of yarn. My first project is to make a scarf for Jason. I've knit one row so far. This is progress, my friends, considering I am completely re-learning the craft. (My grandmother taught me how to knit when I was very young, but I haven't done it in upwards of 15 years!)

Anyhow, I have been studying knitting videos on YouTube, which is helping. Slowly but surely, I am getting back into the swing (or stitch, as the case may be).

Do you knit? Any good pointers for a newbie?

I made a similar Michael's trip last year, determined to become a knitter. I got about 20 rows into a (very uneven) scarf and haven't picked it up since =/ Hope you have better luck! :)
