The beginning 

Thanks to YouTube and a beginners knitting book I have slowly begun to knit. I’ve learnt that there are 4 main parts of knitting. Casting on, knit stitch, pearl knit, and binding off. So far I’ve learned how to cast on and how to knit stitch. Casting on is how you get the yarn onto the needle and a knit stitch is a simple knitting technique. Although these things are simple for people who have been knitting their whole life they were a bit tricky for me to learn. After hours of failed attempts and re starting over and over again I was able to figure them out. I still need to practice these techniques in order to make cleaner knit stitches but the picture below is what I’ve done so far.
