I Want to

I am envious of people who knit.  I always wanted someone to teach me.

I can crochet, but it's not the same as knitting.

Hopefully, next winter I will be a knitting queen!

I'm the same as you! :) Am so wanting to learn how to knit. I love shawls and have seen so many beautiful ones on Etsy.com. Would love to be able to make a shawl for myself. Best wishes in learning. If you find anything helpful, please share.

http://www.knittinghelp.com/ was my best resource while learning how to knit. http://www.knitty.com is fantastic for all the free (and many simple) patterns they offer.

It's so easy! I wish I could tell you now, but instead I'll totally recommend you taking one of those free classes at Michael's or just ask someone who knows...it's a great skill and you'll NEVER forget (and it's good you have a crochet background because this is easier :)<br />
Happy knitting!
