I am learning to knit! I have signed up for a 3 week (6 hours in total) taster class for complete beginners and its free too!
I had a go with a ball of acrylic wool first and learned how to cast on and knit a few rows and then cast off. I then cut strips out of waste fabric and had a go at knitting with them. This was so exciting for me, the idea that you can knit fabric and other waste products like carrier bags. Next week I will be having a go with carrier bags. As you can often get clothes given or cheap at jumble sales/charity shops, I can see that if I can get the hang of this knitting, I will be able to create some wonderful unique pieces.
