I know how to crochet, but I haven't done anything since last winter. I thought it would be fun to learn something different. So my mom taught me to knit. This is my first "project" (and I use this term very loosely). Actually it was just my practice piece. I ended up binding it off and I plan on using it as a pot holder. I think I did pretty good for my first knitting adventure. Now I am doing a long, skinny scarf. I am just doing easy things for a while so that I can get better at it.
