Currently on my needles is Happy Street, by Veera Välimäki. If you couldn’t already tell, I’m a huge fan. Graphic stripes and simple garter? Yes, please. Her shawls make for perfect tv knitting.
I AM VERY TIRED
i seem to have (maybe??? i think?) somewhat figured out how the actual knitting is supposed to work and how to hold the needles
buuut my problem is that no matter what i do i end up casting on the stitches too tightly so it’s impossible to get the needle in…
Cotton yarn is terrible for learning. Get yourself some good springy wool or other animal fiber. Cotton has zero give and is a bit like knitting with a tiny rope. I love cotton for certain things, but you want something forgiving in the beginning.
