For those of you who consider yourself beginning knitters, basically all there is to knitting is knit and purl stitches. And . . counting. You can all count! I know you can! So . . you’re a knitting expert if you can knit, purl and count. I decided last night that I see everything in black and white .. not much gray area, and that’s why knitting patterns are pretty easy for me. I don’t try to think anything into it because . . well, I simply don’t know anything to think into it. I taught myself to knit by watching a left handed friend knit. She told me that she couldn’t teach me because I would do everything backwards since I’m right handed so she knit slowly and let me watch. I think I learned backwards but I get by.
Last night I began Guernsey Wrap. I read through a bunch of the comments about it. Most found it terribly easy and it is! I highly recommend this pattern for real beginners.
It is a bit like a sampler with lots of stitch designs but still . . only knits and purls! I’m going to love this once it’s finished.
