Here I hope to help at least a few people learn the art of knitting and help them produce work they will be proud to use themselves or to give as gifts to friends and family.
What has struck me about the multitude of knitting sites on line is that very few of them are British. There are slight differences in terms and methods between the UK and US so I will be concentrating mainly on UK pattern terminology. That may mean in future converting some free patterns into UK terms.
I'll write about this more fully in another post but to get you started - you need to learn how to cast on and here is a short video with my Scottish accent to the fore.
