I've wanted to learn how to knit for a while now, but never really thought I would have the patience for it. But now, look! I'm learning to knit. Slowly but surely. I'm still not sure I have the patience for it — I think the first three stitches took about half an hour. But after that it went a lot quicker, so there's still hope for me.
I'm using Stitch 'N Bitch as my guide and some knitting supplies graciously loaned to me by a friend. I can do this, right? Lots of people knit. I think I'd like to try straight needles next time though, rather than these circular needles. They keep getting in the way of each other, the yarn, me. Although that's probably just me and complete inexperience.
Now here's what I'm wondering. How soon will I be able to do something like this? — hats for the whole family and then some.
I think it's time to visit my grandma. I could pick up some serious tips from her (and some leisurely side-by-side knitting time).
