This one's for pearshaped - ha, someone finally got me to learn to cast on!!! I was not going to learn knitting for the poppet below - was gonna try and get around that one but the urge kept growing and growing and growing. As much as I like the look of this 70s book, I could not understand the simple instructions to cast on. Embarrassingly my flatmate could. I was determined so I googled.
Ah Google I love you. http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/learn-to-knit was awesome. So, I have learnt a new skill and I may even use my beginning piece for my poppet. Pearshaped - does that mean I am a good thesis subject?
Some of the most simple skills can befuddle me.
