    Default Advice for getting started

    I want to learn to knit. Does anyone have any advice for how to get started?

    Should I try and find a class to take or can I learn from a book?

    Not sure how to proceed and I really wish I had asked my grandma how to do this when she was still alive!

    TIA

    I was able to learn from books, but for a lot of people, having someone there really helps. You can check out knittinghelp.com for videos of the stitches.

    If you have a yarn store near you, they might offer classes. Or just look for a nice lady knitting on the bus and plop down next to her!

    I tried to learn how to knit many times, mainly from books.

    The time that worked for me was taking a class at my local yarn store. It was a 5-6 week class, meeting once a week for 2.5 hours. We knit a pair of mittens. It was nice to have the time in-between to work on the project and practice, but also nice to knit in class, so if you got stuck, the instructor could help. I also learned from having the other students in the class, as they made different mistakes from me.
