I'd like to learn how to knit, but I've never picked up needles before... So I'm a bit apprehensive about giving it a go. How difficult is it to get the hang of it?

K vs C

Neither knitting nor crocheting is harder or easier. Crochet tends to work up faster and is somewhat less likely to come apart on you I think. Knitting has more patterns available.


I heart this!

What a fun event! Thanks AADL for offering this! I am a long time crocheter, I hope to attend soon!


in olden days they taught

in olden days they taught knitting to five-year-olds, it can't be that hard, please don't be afraid to try!

be prepared for your first bit of knitting to be lumpy and uneven and know that *everyone's first knitting* is lumpy and uneven and don't compare what you've produced after 15 minutes of practice to the work of people who've been knitting for half their lives; also don't be afraid to find one of those people and ask for advice about how to de-lump your knitting.

also: it's just yarn, if you mess it up, there is more yarn where that came from.
