Hello...I'm very, very new. I literally learned to knit last weekend. Please don't bite me. My name's Angel and I'm 22 years old from England. I do a lot of craft work, although my main one is cross stitch. I won tickets through cross stitcher magazine and found myself down in London for the Stitch & Craft show where a very nice lady at the Crafts Club sofas offered to teach me to knit.
I haven't knitted since I was....under 8! But I vaguely remember enjoying it, until my sister and I found out that wool makes a very good spiders web and that our babysitter couldn't navigate her way through it and my mum banned wool in the house...cotton didn't work as well So I sat down and she went to look for pink wool for me. She ended up bringing me lilac as there was no pink left, although she was so eager to get me into it she did try and bring me a pink ball...someone else happened to be attached to it though
So I got started and she was really nice and really patient and I really enjoyed it. I didn't actually make anything, just learned a few stitches. Cast on, knit, Purl and cast off. But there's a local knitting club and I asked them if I could join, well they said yes and I nervously joined them on Saturday. They were very welcoming and gave me bigger needles and explained other things such as different yarn weights and techniques and gave me a free pattern too!
This is what I've done
See? Nothing special, but the wool is my sisters favourite colour, so I currently have a scarf on the go for my little sister.
