Its my birthday next week so I have been asked what I want from family members and a set of knitting needles, some wool and some basic patterns/starter kit are now top of the list. We have a really good knitting shop local so I might call in over the weekend and pick out some bits
Yay Wannab! I'm having trouble with the crochet tonight. I can't seem to get any of it right, not even holding the wool. That's not a good start!!
I've given up for tonight... I've mastered the chain stitch but have no idea what to do beyond that. I actually think I have my yarn and stitches too tight as I really can't see how to get IN the stitching to do the next layer. This video has been useful though... I just think my chain is too tight!
Thanks Noo. I will have a proper look and another attempt tomorrow, it's driven me mad tonight!!
I've actually thrown mine on the floor like an absolute child!
I unravelled mine, swore at it and shoved it in the bag!! I've just watched that video, all these people make it look so easy! Tomorrow night and I'm going to come back with more patience and try again. I reckon the key is to get to grips with holding the wool how it best suits you to get the right tension. If it all goes wrong I'm knitting instead!
Night all, I'm off to dream "pick up the yarn , pull it through two, pick up the yarn, pull it through two"........
