During the past 2 years, I’ve been discovering the fun of knitting. I’d been afraid to venture past the “easy” project level, but have finally ventured into “intermediate” territory! This Christmas, my mother-in-law gave me some knitting needles which I needed to make a certain sweater pattern. The pattern is J21.0005-10K–the silver cardigan–in the Coats and Clark Crochet & Knit Easy Style book. For yarn I’m using Red Heart “Classic” in Light Sage Green.
Do you love to knit? There are some wonderful online sites and communities for knitters of all skill levels. Here are some of my favorites:
Coats and Clark Patterns, yarns and helpful links.
Ravelry My favorite knitting site…you need to register to get into this site but what a treasure! A community which helps you learn, organize your projects and even spin your own yarn. There’s even Ravelry Wiki, a community-edited guide!
For years, friends and family valiantly tried to teach me how to knit. I bought many, many booklets and magazines, but couldn’t follow the instructions. Know what? I found a knitting kit for kids, and finally was able to learn! It’s called Knitting: Learn to Knit Six Great Projects by Klutz. Been knitting ever since. Hope you’ll give it a try…have a great weekend!
