  1. Hello Beautifuls,
    I want to try knitting, and I went out and bought some needles, yarn and a book and im having trouble with the little pictures that show you what to do. Do you guys know of any sites for beginners that breaks the steps down, and is fairly easy? Thanks for the help

    SO TRUE!!! Im the yarn department manager at a craft store, and i gladly show customers the basics to knit if they dont know how...

    the sites the others have posted are all real good about showing how to knit.. you also may want to check out your local library, they may have videos on how to knit...

    Welcome to the knitting frenzy!!! You will love it!!! :D
     
  8. Thanks guys so much for your information! I'm about to start going through and trying out the sites.

    yeah, i'm still trying to figure that whole knitting thing out...i had a friend show me the basics--let's hope that it's somewhat correct!, and i've been rocking the scarves since then cause i can't quite understand the different patterns and stuff in books. but hey, i'll get it eventually... (hopefully!)
