I've Been Knitting...♥

Picked up some knitting needles and I just can't seem to put them down...♥

My current project: The Jenny Wrap (pattern can be found on Ravelry)



 
My first scarf  ♥


 Practice scarf I made many many mistakes on...but hey it looks pretty good wrapped up on my purple bear ♥


You know what I'll be doing everyday for the next long while...

I was introduced to a website called Ravelry by some lovely ladies at my local knitting shop Three Bags Full. Ravelry is an amazing online community of knitters and crocheters who share (many free) projects, knitting and crocheting suggestions, yarn information and ratings and much more - it's really amazing and absolutely free to sign up! I've found it very helpful and informative on my knitting journey so far (and of course the amazing ladies at Three Bags Full and tons and tons of online tutorials - thank goodness for the internet). 

I originally intended to take a "beginner's basics" one day knitting class, but the pricetag drove me away ($90 and up yikes)! After countless videos, trials (and errors) I finally got the hang of it. I'm happy I was able to save myself some money (which was well spent on gorgeous yarn), but boy did I wish I had someone to show me from the beginning, because it's so much much easier than how books and (some) videos portray knitting to be!

Do any of you know how to knit?
