First Knitting Class

Cast on 20, undo, cast on 20, knit some rows, undo, cast on 20, knit some rows, purl some rows, undo, cast on 20, garter some rows, stockinette some rows .... Gain a stitch. Oops. Undo. Gain 2 stitches. Oops. Undo. Okay. Gain a stitch. Oops.

Exactly! Your stitches look so even! A good sign of future successes!
I started when I was 6 or 7. I still have the little needles I first knitted with. My first project (that was good enough to use) was a pair of mittens. I didn't put the cable on them - revised the pattern. Finished and wore them in 7th grade!
There are lots of fun things to be knitted. Free patterns at Fibermania - see it on my blog list on the right.
Hugs,

Hey, that is how my sewing has gone today, so not to worry. Yes, lovely even stitches which is most of the battle - it will come.

Your stitching looks very good to me! I tried knitting years ago and just could not "get" it. I'll go at it again one of these days.

Your tension (evenness of stitches) is amazing! are you sure this was your first class? ;-)

Seriously, you have done really, really well. I've taught several people to knit and to get it so quickly is amazing!

*lol* Sounds exactly like me when I'm knitting!

Lovely yard... you're doing great!

Your stitches and tension look very even... that's the hard part and you've already learned that. The rest is just practice. Are you sure you haven't done this before? lol. Your swatch looks great! Congrats.

So excited for you...I am still a beginning knitter, but really enjoy it and look forward to getting a pair of socks made one day! Your project looks great!

I'm so glad I don't remember going through that first awkward stage of holding knitting needles. I've been knitting for 50 years, LOL and now I don't rip out after a few rows, I wait till I've finished something then rip it out and start again. I am curently re-knitting a baby blanket I didn't like.

You are doing very well, although I don't know what any of those words mean (I knit but don't know terminology at all) :)

Well done! Your knitting so far looks great. I'd love to be able to knit, but i just can't get the hang of it.
