So...off and on for about four years I've tried to learn to knit. At the beginning of that I bought the "I Taught Myself To Knit" kit at Walmart and even though they come with a DVD, I couldn't really make much sense of it. And I should confess that I never used the DVD because at the time that I bought the kit, my youngest child was a toddler and I just didn't have time to sit down and watch anything other than Blue's Clues.
But over the years, and especially recently, it really nagged at me that I just couldn't grasp the concept. I always made the excuse that I wasn't coordinated enough to make both hands work together.
I don't make New Year's resolutions but at the beginning of the year I made up my mind to try one more time to learn so I bought a new pair of knitting needles (because who knows what happened to the ones that came with the kit) and started searching on YouTube.
Why hadn't I thought to look on YouTube before?
Anyway, I found some really easy to follow videos by Goodknitkisses and I'm not a pro but I'm learning.
I'm working on a headband now and I'm thinking of sharing the pattern. It's nothing fancy, just a combination of the stitches I've learned so far.
