Knit one, Purl two...

I was at Target (Land of the Impulse Buy) yesterday with my friend and I happened upon the cutest thing. It was this kit so you could learn to knit your dog a sweater. Y'all know how I am about my dogs, so I decided I would pick it up.

So what if I can't knit?

It's so cool! It came not only with an instructional booklet, but a DVD too! I am totally a visual learner so it's helped me tons. I also got yarn, knitting needles, buttons, and a tapestry needle. I'm ready to go!

I'll tell you though, it's kinda hard. I can crochet like no one's business, I've been doing that since I was seven years old. That should tell you how easy it is to learn how to crochet. I figured knitting would be easier, because hey, I have twice the needles now, right?

WRONG!!! I have said more than a couple of choice words at that stupid thing. I haven't even THOUGHT about starting the stupid sweater yet. I practiced casting on and knitting last night, and purling and alternating between knitting and purling today. Check me out tossing knitting terms around, hahaha!

Everyone I know is getting a freaking scarf for Christmas.

Good luck with the knitting. I sat next to a lady on the plane while she was knitting and she tried to show me how to do it. It will just take practice. Can't wait to see what ya make

Good luck S! You'll love it. It is very very therapeutic.

If you are having a really hard time with the motions, it might be the needles and/or the yarn. some "slip" easier than others, and its hard to get control of it.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!
