What you can expect if you are just starting out?

If learning online you will need a set of needles and practice yarn. You will learn how to choose the correct needles and yarn, how to read labels, how to make a slip knot, how to cast on, how to hold your needles, and finally how to knit and purl.

Second lessons include how to check your gauge, read a pattern, how to increase and decrease your stitches, how to join yarns, how to cast off or bind off your stitches, and how to weave in your ends.

Other lessons are available for blocking and seaming.

Megan is such a lovely and kind person. I wish she lived closer! We got right through the knitting pattern that I hadn't been able to make heads or tails of before.

Thank you, Megan!
