sasha benzel: Thanks, Elle! Knitting isn't as hard as it looks - it's just one stitch at a time. If you're interested in learning, Ravelry.com has a very supportive community. Knittinghelp.com is a great place to get started with video knitting lessons, too.
sasha benzel: If it's any comfort, it took me about a dozen tries to really get knitting. It may be that you want to try another style of knitting tan the one you've tried before - I can't knit English style at all, but once someone showed me how to do it Continental style instead, I became unstoppable! You can find me on Ravelry under the username stasia if you have any questions. Good luck!
sasha benzel: There are even more than those two ways - knitting developed along a lot of different lines in different geographic regions, so I definitely recommend exploring!
