Knitting Adventures

I think I said before that I wanted to learn to knit. I am a visual learner so it is very hard for me to look at a book and go oh is that all I need to do. It doesn't work for me like that. So I have been searching for a way to do this on my own. Well, I was able to find a couple of really good sites to help me.

The first one is Knitting Help.com, the other is the Knit Witch both offer videos that show you just what to do.

Here is what I was able to do, I am calling it a cleaning cloth. It is all knitted. There is no purling. That will be some time down the road. I just want to get this skill down before I try and learn the next step.

I finally made bread tonight. It has been like 3 weeks since I made any. I just kept putting it off. I made granola last night and I got all the laundry done today. As well, as the bathroom. So there was nothing left to do other then work on the other cleaning cloth...LOL! Since I can work on that while watching TV tonight I figured it was time to make the bread. At least it is on its last rise so it will be done very soon. Plus, with all of the work that will be happening here over the next few days it will be nice to have it.

I think I am going to work on cleaning some more of the basement. Looking for more places to put my preps!

Gotta Run,

I've heard that there are some very good knitting videos on YouTube. I keep meaning to check them out but don't have the time.
