is a freshly-launched website that teaches you how to knit using video tutorials and simple patterns. The site is clean and pretty with lovely, cohesive photography and a simple layout. Follow the knitting map to go from a person who knows nothing (me) to a person who can make a sweater.
I was never a strong knitter but I sure did try several times. I don’t think I finished even a scarf when what I really wanted to make was the hat above. How amaaazzziiinnngggg is that hat? I have a ton of needles (both round and straight) and probably some left over yarn from projects past. Should I resurrect this hobby?
I love the idea of learning to knit without talking to anybody.
On the other hand. Counting. Ugh. Sometimes when I can’t sleep I start counting backward from 100 and somehow I always forget that I’m doing it somewhere in the 90s. Five minutes will pass and I’ll start over and forget again.
Maybe a better hobby would be reading tumblr. I’ve got that one down.
