I am very excited about learning to knit. I love to learn new things especially when it is something that will benefit my family. I just started my first project yesterday, I attached a photo of what I have done so far. It is hopefully going to be a scarf for my wife. I have started over about 8-10 times but finally seem to have the hang of it. I have learned the stitches that I am using from videos online. I am trying to teach myself via the internet. It is fun but can be a little frustrating at times as well.
I am determined to learn and look forward completing this gift for my wife and then begin on things for my kids. My 4 year old son wants slippers and a hat. My 7 year old daughter wants a hat, gloves, fingerless gloves, scarf, slippers, and a sweater. I think I may be busy. I also want to make myself a hat and scarf. I found a pattern online that I want to use for that. I also would like some slippers for the winter.
The orders are piling up...now I just need some skill, LOL!
