A few weeks ago, I decided to go back to trying to knit with needles. I have completed two small projects since then. It is not as bad as I remember.
I decided to start two more ambitious projects that have nothing to do with cross stitching.
The first is a knitted prayer shawl. I am using the "Original Knitted Prayer Shawl" pattern with 57 stitches. It is a knit 3, purl 3 configuration. I have had to restart it several times but I think I finally have it right. My original needles were too short, so I bought some longer ones. I also figured out that I was doing the pattern wrong and I have corrected that this last restart. So I am hoping for no further massive froggings.
While I was at it, I also decided to try my hand at crochet. I have a book that is supposed to teach crochet visually but I was having issues understanding the diagrams. So, I found a video on YouTube which made everything clear. For my first project, I am doing the "Original Crochet Prayer Shawl"
