Knitting is very easy to learn. All you are doing is making loops with yarn.
This is very difficult to explain without pictures, so go to Michael’s or even the library and find a book. You may want to ask some older female members of your family…they might be able to show you.
I started about five years ago, and I made a blanket all in knit stich. Then I made another one with two colors, also in knit stitch. Then I made another one, knit stitch only. After three blankets, I felt brave enough to try the purl stitch.
I now happily knit away using a cable needle. It’s very easy to pick up, and you get such a sense of accomplishment once you’ve completed your project. (Plus it gives me something to do while I’m watching tv.)
