Hello, I am new.
I am 25 years old and started knitting yesterday! I don’t really know what I am doing and learning by myself. I went to hobby craft yesterday and bought some cheap wool and some size 3 3/4mm needles, I didn’t really have a clue what I was buying so I just picked needles that looked similar size to what my nan used when I was little. The wool I am using says it’s for size 4mm needles (didn’t know what this meant til I got home).
After several hours yesterday I feel quite competent at single cast on, knit and purl using English method and casting off but all I have done is a few sample squares. It all looks quite even so I’m quite pleased with it.
I want to get started straight away onto some sort of project so I will have a finished result rather then just squares. I was thinking maybe a scarf. Does anyone have any recommendations for a very first project? There is a charity shop near me that has a massive knitting section so I am going to go in a bit and indulged in some more wool and needles. I fancy making a chunky scarf just using basic knit so I can practise keeping it even.
I am really excited about how much there is too learn in knitting and I think it’s a lovely hobby for someone my age, I don’t know anyone else my age that knits.
