Baby knits and crochet
A few weeks ago I started this (way to advanced for me) baby knit and I have almost finished my second one now. When I learnt how to crochet I thought I would never knit again because I found crochet so much easier than knitting, although I think that was just because I could only knit scarves and had no idea how to read a pattern (or increase, or decrease or do anything really).
Tom's mum was very patient with me when we were up at the farm a few weeks ago and taught me how read this pattern and taught me all the stitches I need to know. (The pattern is from Debbie Bliss baby knits).
I have had a few people ask me what is the best way to learn how to knit or crochet and other than having someone sit next to you and teach you, I found the best way to learn is by watching a tutorial on you tube. There are thousands of tutorials and many are made for the absolute beginner.
I also have quite a bit of time to sit and practice at the moment!
