I have been trying to knit anything for a while. I started the caloimetry and frogged it cause I did not understand the directions, I have started and frogged a lace washcloth cause I did not understand the directions. And now I am just trying out different patterns in my new “The Knitters Handbook” and I keep messing those up!:wall: I have found 2 knitting groups nearby, one has a group of about 3-7 regulars and I feel too shy around them to ask them to show me stuff all the time. The other is a group that I went to once and now I am unsure of when it meets and I don’t really know any of them, and I think the group size fluctuates a lot. I know I could always come here and ask questions but 1) you all would get sick of seeing them all the time! and 2) I am more of a visual learner, you can explain something to me and unless you are showing me as you explain, it will go straight over my head!:whoosh:
I have come to the conclusion that I need someone to teach me the more advanced (which in reality is not really advanced!) knitting techniques to me. I have looked all over on the internet and all the classes in NJ are in the southern part of the state. I am going to have to check with Michaels and see if they offer anything with knitting. I really enjoy knitting and right now it is just kind of depressing me to keep trying and not being able to understand what I am trying to do.
