  • i've forgotten how to knit

    i was taught to knit in school when i was in first grade use to it all the time but now i forget. i was wanting to knit a baby blanket but i've resorted to crocheting which to me takes longer and is more tedious. so if anyone knows any links or knows how to knit and has some pointers i'd greatly apreciate it.

      Knitting

      Wildchild posted an excellent link. I have one that I find helpful too:

      http://knitting.about.com

      I really like About.com, especially the beading and jewelrymaking sections, but I like the knitting section too.

      I also picked up the book, "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Knitting and Crocheting" by Gail Diven and Cindy Kitchel. Great book. I learned how to crochet when I was 8, but I learned a lot more about crochet too. Very helpful book!

      I just learned how to knit in March. I've made a ton of dishcloths and I've started a sweater from a free pattern off of Lion Brand's web site. http://www.lionbrand.com

      Personally, I find knitting more tedious and time consuming than crochet, but maybe it's because I don't know knitting as well as crochet. :D

        Heh! That's funny! I find crocheting difficult but LOVE knitting. That's a great site, keelyoherne. You never have too many knitting patterns. Lots of great info on felting & other things too. There's a really great book called Knitting Goddess. I can't remember the author but it's in the book forum. The author has lots of great patterns as well, she talks about how different Goddesses relates to knitting. Wonderful book!
