Knitting my Heart Out!

Oops!  Hope that's not a trademark infringment...knitting my heart out!
See what I've been learning to do?
Now, if you're an expert knitter, please don't judge.
Today is Monday and I picked up my needles on Friday and I started over at least, hmmm, 5 times.
I have so much to learn about this craft and I'm excited about it.
Now, I don't know if acrylic yarn is a no no but I've found it easy to work with for me as a beginner, I bought some fancy stuff and I kept messing it up, so for now this will have to do.
I found video instructions on http://www.knittinghelp.com/ because I just could not figure out what "casting on" meant and I still can't cast off but I'll worry about that part when I get to it.
Sorry I couldn't take a better picture of this one, it's my first "real" attempt.  It's the one I thought I wouldn't have to stop on and I could just keep going but I kept messing it up and for me, there's no since in keeping something that's messed up.  So, if you want to learn to knit, seriously go to http://www.knittinghelp.com/ and watch their videos.  Oh, and get a couple of needles and some yarn.  I'm sure there's better yarn out there but I'll probably have to order it.  I haven't checked hobby lobby's selection but I bet they'll have some good stuff there.  Wish me luck!

  1. I just started knitting about a month ago and I love it! I've made some hats and purses so far. I found a tutorial on youtube for joining in the round which was fabulous. Other than that, I also thought Leigh Ann Berry's Basic Knitting was very helpful. With detailed instructions and excellent diagrams. Have fun!
