Wow. You guys are the absolute best. Thank you so much for all the plisse love.
Here is the thing though. If you can make a knit stitch. And you can make a purl stitch. And okay, maybe fix a dropped stitch. Then YOU can make anything. Honestly. YOU can.
The hardest thing about knitting is reading the pattern. And I guess actually knowing what it means. However, if you have someone that can help you decipher a pattern, then you can make anything.
The first thing I ever knit was a sweater. I learned how to cast on, knit and purl, all within that first project. My mother helped me and I actually had her sitting next to me every step of the way. (Blessed and lucky, I know.) I was in college on my three week winter break. Cold weather in Florida meant movie time and okay maybe I should learn to knit time. I did. And actually headed back to college wearing my new sweater.
