Picking Up Sticks

I learned how to knit over the weekend!

I cannot tell you how much fun this was. I had to watch a bunch of YouTube videos until I got the hang of it, but once I did I was jammin’! I’m using 8mm needles with a nice chunky yarn from Lion Brand called Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in Denim. This is a very simple garter stitch that I get to do over and over and over and over…

I think I’m making myself a scarf. It is not at all perfect – you can see how uneven the ends are – but who cares? It’s my first knitting! Will keep you updated on how it goes. I am just so excited! It’s so interesting to go from cross-stitching with thread to knitting with yarn. Love it.

A quick hello to all my new followers! I’ve gotten such a great response to the giveaway so far. Thank you all for your interest – we’ve got a little less than two weeks left! Good luck to everyone. :D And to anyone who hasn’t entered so far, please post a comment on this post.

Adios, mi amigos!

Yay!! You started knitting! A scarf is always a good place to start. I find knitting and crocheting really soothing, although I'm not the best with following patterns, I just knit or crochet whatever comes to me!!
