I took up crochet a little over a year ago, and I really enjoy it. My mom got me started (she’s one of those “crafty” people, you know). It’s a lot of fun, very relaxing, and hey, I don’t suck at it. Hard for me to find a hobby like that.
I’ve been interested in knitting as well, so I asked my mom if she had any knitting needles she might be willing to let me have. Her response–“How many sets would you like, dear? I think I have about 487. Oh, and here’s a nice case for you to keep them in. Need some yarn? How about some patterns? Let me know if you need any help!”
Anyway, I haven’t tried to learn how yet, but I think I’m going to within the next week or so. Got a couple of good instruction books and some patterns.
Is knitting hard? I’ve seen my mom do it, and she just flies, I swear. The things she makes are so nice. How hard is it to learn on one’s own? I conquered crochet, so I’m pretty sure I can do this too.
