    re: Knitting : Websites & Useful Links

    Hello all want to be knitters,
    I can't say I am an expert at knitting. I just learnt it a year ago.
    For starters I would advice to get a book from library or from a store which teahes to beginners.
    Make sure to learn the easiest method to cast off the yarn. Forexample cast of 20 to begin with.
    Next the basic stitches are knit and purl. Follw the directions given in the book to do this.
    If you come up with any conerns post it here and I will be glad to walk you throug it.
    So far,
    I have knitted many scarfs and caps - for adults and kids.
    A poncho for myself.
    Baby sweater and cap for friend's baby.
    Now I am working on Baby sweater with hood attached to a neighbours new born.
    All this I just followed the direction.
    Enough about me hope to hear from all of you and we can Knit together.

    Hi ars,

    That's really great ! You mean we can learn from scratch by just following the directions in the book?

    Can you please give more info about the name of the book, the type of knitting needles and yarns to start with?

    I will try in Walmart/Ben Franklin/ Michaels too.

    So if you could share the exact type of needles, name of the books,type of yarns etc for beginners...I will greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks
    Krithika

    I used the klutz knitting book kit.

    It comes with bamboo needles which will be very hard to knit if you are learning. So buy a set of metal needles.

    Check the klutz book website.
    Some how I can't paste the link here.
    Google Klutz books and you will find it.
