All Thumbs…Learning to Knit!!!

It was so much fun, I had to laugh at myself and that is always a good thing. I had a great time and Gracie is very patient. Along with being a very special friend. knit 022 What have I done so far, not much. I have taken more out than I have put in. For those of you who knit, I look pretty funny right now. Often confused, but determined.DSCN3079

I know just how you feel! I took some knitting classes several years ago and I was the same way...all thumbs. But you'll get the hang of it if you keep practicing.

Congratulations on learning to knit! I learned when I was 11 years old! I have always loved it and find it very soothing. You probably wonder how! If I might give one suggestion I would recommend learning on circular knitting needles at least till you get the hang of it. They are easier to manage for most beginners. Good luck! Twyla

I learned when I was 12 and made some spectacular sweaters through the years. Once you learn, it is like riding a bicycle, you never forget.
