I did it! I finally learned how to knit. I am so excited! I am definitely not moving on from crocheting. I just really wanted to learn both. Kind of the mindset that I am crossing these things off a bucket list. Learning to knit was a long process for me. I seriously attempted at least three times before I finally got the hang of it. I am also far perfect. I can thank the lionbrand.com videos for teaching me and my mother-in-law Kathy for helping me when I got stuck! I just had a hard time getting comfortable holding two needles instead of one crochet hook. My first little knitted swatch has many little mistakes in there. But I am still proud of it!
I just did the basic Knit Stitch and next I am going to attempt the Purl Stich. Then I will stop there for awhile and just practice. Again I am so excited I am getting the hang of it! There are a couple projects I would love to make. The first thing I will make is probably a scarf. Then I want to really try making this beautiful baby blanket!
The pattern seems very simple. Basically all you do is knit little 3×3 inch squares and sew them together. A lot like a crochet granny square blanket. I think I can handle that! Now I just need to find someone who is having a baby so I can make one
