Learning to knit...

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I used to be able to knit when I was little and was quite good at it stopped and I've not done it for years. Now I've completely forgot how to do it. I've got a beginners guide book and watched a few guides on youtube but I am still rubbish at it and can't grasp it!

Does anybody know any sites which are good for beginners and are really simple and easy to follow?! :)

    Get yourself on Ravelry. Loads of info there.

    Also, knitting help is teh best site ever.

    And here! People will answer questions if you need help :)

    I think being all fingers and thumbs and being easily confused is really not helping me, haha. :rolleyes:

    And impressed you should be. Your tension looks really good considering you haven't picked up needles in years! Well done.

    And glad I could help. Knitting Help is just the best website and if I spent all the hours I spend on ravelry actually doing some knitting I would complete many more things!

    I love ravelry and I agree, if I spent half as much time knitting as what I do looking at other peoples knitting I get a heck of a lot more done!! xo
