I have always wanted to learn to knit and have ALWAYS spectacularly failed at it. For some reason, the points on the ends of needles just didn’t make any sense to me (In my mind, sticks need to end in a hook to be effective…)
But, I’ve never really been one to shy away from a challenge either so I bought needles about two years ago and kept trying–always blaming the yarn or the needles for my failures–and never succeeding.
That is, until I bumped into the most charming lady over in YouTube. Her channel, The Casting On Couch literally changed me from JUST a crocheter who knows how to cast onto a knitting needle but that’s about it…to someone who can work magic with any kind of stick and some yarn!
Her hypnotic rhythm…and let’s be honest here, her English accent!! made knitting seem effortless and comfortable! My hope is that she will do more videos because I think she’s brilliant!
If you want to try your crocheter’s hand at knitting, I suggest you grab some needles and yarn and have a look!
Oh!! And a quick tip for those who might be a beginner to lace knitting that was given to me (paying it forward is always a good thing!) is to use a lifeline!
