It was fun. I am making a baby blanket for the baby I havnt yet concieved =D
Janel, I was going to do the sheepy pants but she said to see how I do on this first...
So, I am really looking forward to getting the hang of it. It just feels so awkward to knit since I am so used to crochet. I actually have to hold my yarn with my left hand (I guess normally its held in the right?)
I will post pics of my progress soon
Oh how exciting! I can't wait to see!
I'm curious which you'll like more? Crochet or Knit?
I also hold my yarn in my left, that is called continential knitting, and most people says it goes faster than holding it in your right (called english knitting)
I think a blanket is a good start. My first project was mittens.

I have never tried crochet before. Is it harder or easier than knitting? I have so much to learn in knitting still that I think I will try to master that as best I can and then try something else.

Continental is definitely faster than English, however it seems so many places and books teach English! At least here in the US (thats what I ended up learning from a book)....
Maybe its easier to demonstrate? I don't know, my goal is to learn continental though...
so i can knit more

I'm glad it went so well! I knit continental (yarn in my left hand), too.
What do you mean by left/right? Like what needle is the working yarn coming from?
