Well, I've gone and done it. I swore I was going to learn to knit one of these days and sure enough, I did! I checked out a couple of youtube videos, decided continental style suited this crocheter just fine and off I went. No kidding, by the next day I had made my first hat. Of course I knit it flat...circular needles and those double-pointed torture sticks are waaaay beyond me, at least for now. Anyway, thought I would share some pics with you of my first attempts. Please keep the laughter to a minimum. Or a maximum, who cares? It's not like I can hear you from here. :)
This is my first attempt. It's so bad, it's not even worthy of a mannequin shot...
Here is my second attempt. This time with ww yarn and size 11 needles. Umm I didn't realize that would be like using an N hook with fishing wire. Yikes! It's super loose and don't you just love that LARGE hole in the front where I obviously dropped a stitch. Yep. Pretty.
Here is my third attempt. It's actually pretty good. Even the seam in the back is decent. This time I used size 8 needles and the tension was much better. I would even wear this in public.
