Knitting 101

As a child I always wanted to learn to knit and years later, I have finally started to learn. I never in a million years thought that it would be so stressful.

IMG_1692The first thing you do when you are beginning the knitting process is casting on! How many cast ons you do depends on your pattern. I am making a hat and my pattern called for you to cast on 56 times. There are a few different ways to do it and it took my a while to figure it out, but I soon became a pro. The whole time I was casting on I was thinking that knitting must be pretty east, I was doing this part okay…well…I was wrong. After I casted on I had to learn how to knit stitch and how to pearl stitch. It was so horribly confusing. After many knots and almost breaking down in tears, I started to get it….well I thought I did. I messed up and had to start over at least five times. I was about to throw in the knitting needles.

Well after having to restart about ten more times, I have finally started to get the hang of it. I am kind of figuring it out and it is going a lot smoother. My stitches may not always be perfect, but I have come a long way from when I started!
