So today I decided to try again. Lisa sent me links to Youtube videos that demonstrated all the steps! Yay! Finally I am going to master knitting.
The first video showed me how to cast on. I casted on 30 stitches, no problem!
Then I learned the knitting stitch! Yes, my needles are backwards. I am left handed. & I found most of the Youtube videos done for lefties too! Hooray. I knit a few rows. And now, I had 32 stitches. Where did those extra stitches come from? That's not a good thing, is it? To add stitches?And then I watched the casting off video, and it seemed pretty simple. Here's my finished sample. Lovely isn't it? No?
Just so you don't think my day was a total waste, I did make this cute bag....
