I learned knitting with a booklet that came with a ball of yarn and two standard size needles, which is probably why I never learned to purl until years later. Unfortunately I know no one else who knits, so when the instructions in another book read "go watch a friend who knits" there wasn't much I could do. This time around I had the internet and found all kinds of priceless resources. I am venturing into unexplored territory now, figuring out what I'm capable of. Not much, seems like at this point. My goal is to be able to execute patterns in multiple colors, like Fair Isle (sp?) knitting. So far I have been able to make a stripe pattern. Yay.
