I asked my oldest daughter about how hard it was to knit, since she taught herself how to knit. She told me I could teach myself and let me borrow a beginning knitting book and a set knitting needles to make my first project.
Since I wanted to make a pair of knitted slippers, I decided to look on the internet for an easy slipper pattern. I found a great beginners pattern at blockntackleknitting blog spot and got to work.
This is my work in progress, not bad for my first try at knitting. It is a little hard to get use to using two needles. Knitting needles are pointy and do not have a hook, so I kept poking my finger! So far I have been able to learn how to knit and purl.
Here are my finished slippers, I added a pom pom just for fun!
Knitting was a challenge and making these slippers was kind of fun, I might even make these for my grand kids for christmas!
Even thought I tried out knitting, I still love to crochet and will keep working on crochet projects!
Have a great week!
