Hi, 

I'm a new member. I don't knot how to knit, but I'm planning ot learn. I taught myself to crochet a few months ago though and now I am hooked. (That's a well worn pun, huh?)

I'll see you out there!

Hi Mari,  I do the Norwegian continental knitting.  It is the fastest and the easiest to learn especially if you know how to crochet.  You will hold your yarn in the same way and instead of the crochet hook, you will use the knitting needle.  Here is a video to help you.  Inspite of how the video tells you to wrap the yarn around your left hand fingers, hold the yarn as you do for the crochet.  I started knitting when I was ten and have been knitting for the last 40 years!  I can also do the English style of knitting and I do use both methods at the same time when I do fair isle knitting.

I will find you help to cast on your stitches if you like.   I use both of these to cast on depending on what I am knitting.  I do like the cable cast on as it does make for a nice edge.  http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/FEATsum05TT.html

Happy knitting, Zoe Smile
