i want to start knitting but have never ever done anything like this before. can anyone recommend a good book and starter kit for me? i had been thinking i'd like to start by making a scarf or baby blanket, but maybe that's too ambitious?
any ideas on how and where to start would be appreciated!
I really really like Stitch n bitch, there are some really nice patterns which you can see on that link. I made a Kitty Earflaps hat within a couple of months of learning, took me a while but I did it, now I am designing my own stuff.
If you are anywhere near a local yarn store go and have a chat. They will help you to get started. Also join Ravelry and check out which local groups are near you. It is much easier if someone can show you than just to learn from a book.
