Today was officially snow day #5! So while enjoying a day of both productive and unproductive (yet fun!) activities, I decided to learn how to knit! My grandma gave me a great box of yarn and all kinds of knitting needles quite awhile ago, and after an inspiring night at Barnes and Noble last night, today was the day to learn.
I learned how to "cast on" after watching this YouTube video at least a million times. I tried not to get frustrated, and I refused to give up. Knitting is just not an easy thing to replicate simply by watching someone else do it! After much perseverance I finally got it. Then I watched this video from Knit Picks to learn how to make a scarf. They also have some other great tutorials on there. I have my sights set on making an adorable round hat! While I can see the scarf is going to take me quite some time, knitting is very relaxing, and I am excited to have a new creative outlet! I'm a knitter!
P.S. This very old and "classic" book did absolutely nothing for me. I don't think this is the sort of thing that someone like me can learn from looking at one-dimensional pictures! But that certainly doesn't stop me from trying! :)
