My First Knitting Book

Hi there, how time flies, it's weekend again and I hope you all have a wonderful time!

Did I tell you I'm learning how to knit? Yes, it's really my new fun. I have a big love with crochet, and now I think I should make friend with knitting. But honestly, I did not spend much time for knitting until now, well so many things to do and time has its limit.

I received the parcel from Amazon.com yesterday, my knitting book arrived! It's a "Teach Yourself Visually Knitting". Hope I could get help with this lovely book, for such a beginner like me.

The book has a colorful and visual design, I can find a lot of knitting techniques with picture demonstrations. Let's go through some pages:

So interesting, isn't it? Well, there's much more things I should do, but I will take it easy, will enjoy it at my leisure. Learning and enjoying the crafting feeling, what could be greater than? :)

Thank you so much for stopping by and see you very soon!

Good luck! My cousin tried to teach me to knit and it just didn't work with me. I enjoy crocheting and just stick with it as I am still learning as I go with it. Best wishes for a beautiful day. :) Tammy

This is on my list for the new year, I am determined to learn to knit. I get very jealous when I go to my knit and Knatter group and see the huge choice of patterns available for knitters. Enjoy your new craft and have a great xmas.xx

Good luck! I've been trying to teach myself to knit & it hasn't been great so far - I'm thinking of taking a class in the new year :) Might have to look for that book, it looks like a good one!

Good luck! I've been working on the very basic knitting skills I have recently and have found Youtube a really helpful site to use.
Have a lovely day.

lovestitch said...

Thank you Louise! Yes I also think Youtube is a good channel for us to improve our skills! I could see your knitting is so great, too!
Wonderful day!

I also love more crochetting than knitting. I learned to knit watching videos on youtube. But I know only the simple stitches and with them I created something. My first knitting book was a present of my sister's boyfriends :)
I hope you have a great week!
Hugs

This book looks fabulous, and that is great that you are learning to knit! I'm sure that you will pick it up very quickly as you crochet so well. I can't really crochet but I have been knitting since I was 10 and I absolutely love it! Good luck with it and very much looking forward to hearing how you get on! Sarah x

I was just looking at the same book at the book store last night! I want to learn to knit so bad!! I tried a bit while watching on youtube but It seems so hard compared to crochet, for me anyway....

lovestitch said...

Thank you lovely ladies! I am so great to receive your encouragements, that really made my days! Hope I could knit very soon :)
Wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
Love and hugs,

That looks like a very good book because it has the illustrations to help you hold the needles. My daughter has taught herself to crochet with a book and the name of the book was called (you will laugh!) "I can't believe I taught myself how to crochet" and they also have one called "I can't believe I taught myself how to knit" and they both seem to be very effective. I do both, but I prefer to crochet, but it is nice to know h ow to do both...good luck and remember that You Tube has a lot of good tutorials that you can play and watch! Have fun!

Penelope said...

Oh you will just love knitting when you get into it, soon this will become a new addiction!! Enjoy xox

Josie said...

How wonderful that you're pursuing knitting! It looks like a very good book to get you started. I think it may seem awkward at first handling the 2 needles (it was that way for me!), but once you get the idea, it can be so rewarding. Knitting (like crochet) can be soothing in its own way. Good luck my friend :-)
