Feeling crafty

I bought knitting needles on Monday* and I’ve just mastered casting on and the knit stitch. Woo hoo!

I picked leftover yarn for practicing, but now I’m moving ahead with a garter stitch cloth/pot holder (depending on the size that results). Either way, I’m getting lots of practice before I tackle the purl stitch.

Tons of thanks to Judy (KnittingTipsFromJudy) for her great YouTube videos. 😀

*For the record, I’m currently using 8-inch size 7 (US) bamboo needles. I honestly didn’t know what size needles I should buy, but the bamboo was calling to me! I like the feel of wooden needles, so will try to stick with them. If I do crochet again in the future, I might just get the bamboo hook I saw in the store beside the needles! 🙂
