Armed with knitting needles, looms and YouTube, I've taught myself how to knit over the last couple of weeks. My goal was to be able to knit wash cloths and scarves. Pretty simple goals. I've done both of those things and have tried to progress along.
I've pretty much gotten the knit and the purl down enough that it doesn't look like a hot mess. I'm not dropping stitches as much as in the beginning.
Since I want to find some projects to do with my lunch group of knitters at school, I ordered a couple of circle knitting looms. The large one is for hat making and the two small ones are for mittens.
I've made a couple of scarves on some mega fat needles and matching caps on the circle loom.
It's been a lot of fun to make these. The hats only take around 2 hours to create from start to finish.
Now to just figure out how to make them fit.
