|Becoming Art's Suave in Sandalwood|
When you learn how to knit, you're learning an entirely new skill set, including language, culture and attitude.
Some folks give up early in the process. "I just did't 'get' it."
Others muddle along and stick with the basics, because those are pretty easy to learn.
Others yet really dig in, voraciously learning everything possible about their new craft. And become experienced knitters!
One of the beauties of knitting is that you're never to old to learn to knit, or to expand your knitting skills.
One of the things I really love about knitting is that I'm never done learning. There is always a new technique or skill or tradition to play with.
I'll let you in on a secret: Every single experienced knitter had to learn how to knit.
Every one of your knitting heroes and heroines had to learn how to knit - no one is born with needles in hand, knitting. Honest!
Whether you've knit all your life or are fairly new to it or have been wanting to learn or somewhere in between ... you have the absolute potential to knit on the same level as your favorite super star knitters.
Feeling intimidated by the latest Twist Collective? No need to be, because YOU can learn how to knit every gorgeous piece in the latest edition.
Trust me, if I was able to learn to do this, so can you. :)
As I'm continuing the overhaul of my blog, I want to create a resource for you and your knitting questions and problems. A "beginner's guide to knitting," perhaps. I would LOVE to know what you're dying to know.
And to make it more fun, I'm going to give away a few prizes!
The #1 prize will be a copy of Knit and Wrap, the collection of 25 collars, cowls and capelets that includes my Flirt cowl knitting pattern (it's a great collection - gorgeous knits!)!
#2 prize will be two knitting patterns of your choice from Phydeaux Designs.
#3 prize will be one knitting pattern of your choice from Phydeaux Designs.
