Yes, that sweet new baby of mine and I are doing great! (Thanks for asking…)
And so are her big brother and sister. They are still completely fascinated by her and all of her wiggly parts.
New pics to come soon, I’m sure. :)
Oh, I have something really exciting to share with you.
Are you curious who will be teaching us all how to knit?
Rebecca Danger, from Danger Crafts, will be posting here once a week.
And don’t worry……she’s starting very basic.
Perfect for all of us first-timers. Yay.
(check out her blog here……you’ll see what I mean.)
This is Rebecca Danger from Danger Crafts and RebeccaDanger.typepad.com. Ashley has asked me to stop on by once a week, for the next few weeks, and help you all to learn to knit. Yeah! Sounds like fun, huh?
- “Worsted Weight” Cotton Yarn: I am using Lion Brand Yarns “Lion Cotton” available at Joann’s and Michael’s. You should be able to do all 3 of my learn-to-knit projects with one ball. Worsted weight refers to the size of the yarn, check the label on the yarn to know what you are getting.
and pull until your loop makes a knot around your yarn
Tah-dah! One stitch on the needle. Now to add more stitches. Grab your yarn in your left hand
Get your hand set back up so the yarn is wrapped around UNDER your thumb and OVER your index finger, just like how you started. Ready to make another stitch? Repeat the above steps until you have 24 stitches on your needle. Cast on complete.
Yeah! You have learned the first step to knitting! Practice the cast on this week, making sure you have 24 sts on your needle for next week when I will teach you the knit stitch. I’ll see you then!
