My First Time Knitting!

HI!  Today I would like to share with you that I have knit a cowl for the very first time.  A dear friend of mine suggested that we learn to knit together so I decided to take the plunge.  She shared THIS very good video with me on how to make a cowl.  I've never knit before and it was a bit of a stretch for me.  I did take the stitches out lets say....a few times. :)  I finally got the hang of it, and then it was like I just could't stop. Ha!  I used the Red Heart Stellar yarn in Comet. I love the variation that it has.  Plus, it's very soft.  One of the best things is that you can't see the imperfections very well either. :)

It's wonderful to try new things, and I've already started another knitted cowl, but with smaller yarn and needles.  It's a bit of a stretch for me..I must say that I like crocheting better, but it's a new skill I'm going to try to work on.

What about you?  Do you like to knit or crochet or both?

Sharing with The Art of Homemaking Mondays.

Well done! Those video tutorials are such blessings! I have not plunged into the world of knitting yet, but my daughter loves it. You have something fun to do in the new year!

Your cowl is beautiful! Keep up the good work my friend!

I know how to crochet and knit, but for me crocheting is faster.
I like your yarn choice.

I think it is just wonderful that you are at least trying! It really looks warm and cozy. And the videos are so wonderful to have as a tutorial!
The yarn is very pretty! Keep it up as it will never be wasted in what you learn! Happy New Year, dear friend!
