Learning a new skill was easier than thinking up what skill I wanted to learn. Since I already know how to crochet I decided I wanted to learn how to knit.
The Meetup group I'm in had a Mom's Night Out knitting night. One of the girls' mom is an experienced knitter and she came to show us what to do.
At first, holding the yarn was the hardest part. You can hold it in your right hand (which is backwards from crochet) or you can hold it in your left hand. That's called Continental.
I made a dishrag first. And when I finished all I said, rather loudly, was "HA!". I couldn't believe how ugly and misshaped it was. I had a few missed knits too which caused the holes.
Ryan saw the dishrag and asked what it was and then asked me to make him one for his kitchen.
His went a little better. I made a mini version and only screwed up on the second to last row and I couldn't figure out how to go back because it just wasn't working!
