It's been a while since I've done a knitting post. I am still plugging along. I've (finally) mastered the slip knot and casting on, knitting and purling is pretty simple, so I thought it was about time I gave something more a go. Knitting abbreviations seem like a foreign language still and every new stitch has me looking for a Youtube video to go along with it.
I've been knitting squares from this book
I really like it. I'm more of a hands-on learner and seem to do better watching someone do the stitches - which is where Youtube comes in. I've learned slip stitches, yarn overs, decreasing and increasing stitches and even done a cable stitch!
I like how they've turned out! I'm feeling a little more confident to try something else. I still have to give changing colours a go - looks a little difficult to work out just how to make sure the stitch is the colour you want.
I'm still determined to get those hedgehog mittens done by next winter!
