Remember those many balls of yarn and those knitting needles you bought and had every intention of learning how to knit… but you couldn’t figure out how to cast on, so you threw them into a closet or drawer and forgot about them. Go did them out. You’ve got time now! Also, there are so many resources out there that are free and accessible 24/7 to help you learn! Even I refer to them sometimes when I need to learn a new stitch or technique and I’ve been knitting since I was 10. I know, shut up bragger! Anyhooooo…. check out some of the videos below and get knitting! I expect to see a sweater when we are done this pandemic!

If you like to have reference books in your library, I strongly suggest you buy a few books on knitting stitches. I have several on my shelf. Additionally, I have all of the books from the Stitch’n Bitch series. Not only are they fun, they are beginner friendly.
There are lots of websites out there with free knitting patterns or get onto your Pinterest account and do a search. I’ve listed a few links below.
Once you are up and knitting, check out Ravelry for knitting inspiration and if you want to get sassy and upgrade your skills, check out Poison Grrls.
