But now, I've developed a new piece of advice I give my new knitters: Just Keep Knitting. New knitters make lots of mistakes. Think about the last time you learned something new - if you were doing it right you made a few mistakes in the beginning. That first meal you cooked, painting you painted, or skill you tried - there's no way it was perfect!
In fact, making mistakes (or Failing!) is the best way to learn. Usually you only get out of something what you put into it. So if you are trying hard and making big mistakes, you are doing something right (especially in the beginning).
Many are impatient learning to knit. Who doesn't want to produce an awesome sweater on the first try? But it takes time, and patience, and most importantly - failure!
I'm pretty excited, I want to tell you that I'm working on a brand new site where I can teach you how to knit, step by step. Stay tuned!
Failure sucks though. No one likes to mess up, get it wrong, or look foolish to others (even though you shouldn't be worrying about what others think!). But the beginning always looks messy. It doesn't take too long to learn to knit, and it will build your character to take a few days, weeks?, months? to learn :)
