Hello all. I’m new to knitting and am looking forward to learning more. A few days ago I bought my first needles (size 8 U.S) that were pared with a how to book. I have gotten good at the knit stitch and am okay at the purl stitch, though I’m having more trouble with this one. I have learned to bind off as well.
I need some help understanding what kinds of knitting materials are out there and what they are used for. I don’t have a clue what the different sized needles are used for or what kinds of yarns are used for what. I’m a total newbie.
