Knitting.

So for Christmas of 2015, hubby gave me a set of knitting needles, a skein of yarn, and a book after I mentioned maybe wanting to learn to knit.

Basically, I would see all this gorgeous, yummy yarn at the store and want a scarf. And while I have a few knitting friends, I couldn't bring myself to infringe on their time and ask them to make me one.

So it took a good amount of time poring over the book - and finding a good YouTube channel - before I finally got anywhere. Let me tell y'all, I thought I was too stupid to knit for nearly a full month.

Now I can say proudly that I am damn good at the knit (garter) stitch. I can do several other stitches, and have made a few scarves.

I'm pretty apprehensive, though, about trying other things. I find that I would rather have some one-on-one instruction, because not everything is easily understandable from the book or YouTube. I may check out the local yarn shop, see what they offer. I will also probably look at JoAnn or Michael's, too, see what they've got.

In the meantime, however, I've had to cut myself off from buying yarn. Man it's almost as bad as books, I can't seem to stop!

Does anyone else knit? What do you like to make best? What's your favorite yarn?
