Learning To Knit!

I have a new crafty endeavor! Katie of The Caged Yarn is teaching a knitting class here in Houston that started last night. We spent about an hour being baffled and frustrated but I think I’m starting to get the hang of it, at least casting on and knitting which is as far as we got. I get such a thrill out of trying new things + can’t wait until next week. Do you knit? If so please leave me your best tips in the comments!

She was really well-prepared- isn’t it a welcoming classroom!

  1. You’re going to love it! There are so many goodies you can make knitting and it’s so rewarding :) And I agree with erin – watching bad tv marathons makes the perfect combination 😉

    You will love it. I love knitting. I recommend you learn how to use circulars asap; you can do a lot (I’m a crazy hat-maker) and they make great gifts.

    And yes, to the TV–stream a million episodes of something awesome on Netflix and go to work. I’ve made a hat in one sitting while watching a football game. I can’t wait to see pics of your finished projects!

    Hey
    The class looks fun. I have been knitting since I was six and my advice to everyone is make sure you understand how you cast on, knit, purl, and end a project- then have fun discovering the multitude of techniques that are out there! Also I find that radio and knitting are perfect companions.
