So I got the urge to learn how to knit the other night and I got a small paycheck yesterday and decided to go to wal-mart to cash it.
So with money in hand and my daughter in the buggy I happily went to the craft section of my local Wal-mart (which btw isn't very big) and grabbed a set of needles and a small ball of yarn.

I was so excited but I also had to work yesterday so I begrudgingly went to the job and wasted my time until I could get home.
After putting my daughter to bed I pulled out my needles and yarn and set to searching the internet for how to videos.

the first one I found moved so fast I couldn't figure out how to cast on. So I searched for another and found a really simple video for casting on. I got that down pat then looked for one to make stitches.
This step proved to be more difficult, after an hour of watching the video and my boyfriend trying to explain it to me, I finally could make one row of stitches.
but for whatever reason when I go to make the second row, no matter how loose I make my stitches I always wind up not even being able to put my needle through the stitch. Oh yeah it doesn't help that my left hand is my most useless hand ever it never wants to cooperate.
I got frustrated a put the stuff down and my boyfriend says "hey maybe it would be easier with thicker needles and thicker yarn" so I am gonna try to get those today and maybe a crochet hook since that only requires one hand to really be functional. LOL

    Good luck and keep on trying! I've never learned how to knit. I can crochet a bit, but am not an expert by a long shot. I hope you get the hang of it. Its a relaxing craft.

    Loved you comment to me about using up left over yarn for the cute hat. Sure does save lots of money and gosh the colorful, original projects that result are such a delight. Sally V.
