When I was a young girl my mother taught me how to knit and crochet. I did it for a time, and stopped doing it for one reason or another. Then recently, I decided to try it again. Now I wasn't really all that good, so it was mostly a scarf(s) that was the result of it of my past endeavors.
So, I went to Joann fabrics and bought needles and yarn and hooks and thread.
I was trying to remember on my own, how to get started and knew the motions but didn't remember everything. So I went to YouTube and pulled up a great video and it all started coming back to me. Cast on, was something the eluded me, but as I did it I remembered my mother saying now don't do it so tight because you'll need to get the needle under the yard to start the knitting process.
It will take some time to get a rhythm to it again.
For those of you who still knit and have been doing it for years, I commend you.
