I really fancy learning to knit but no idea where to start!
08/02/2013 at 13:30
I made a scarf for me and a matching one for my teddy when I was 7! So it can't be that hard. No idea now though, or how to start - are there any tutorials on You Tube, or do you have a shop near you that you can buy the bits you need and ask advice at? I can think of two places in our local town that I could go for advice for this, but they are both independents.

You tube would be good for tutorials. Maybe pick up a craft magazine with some yarn and needles too.
You've just reminded me- we have a funky wool shop in town called 'The Fluff Emporium' I think I'll go ask in there!
No, its called The Fluff-a-torium.

I want something to do in the evenings that will keep my hands busy. Don't be rude now.

I can knit basic things, would like to get better but don't have the patience unfortunately. My gran taught me to knit scarves and blankets when I was about 7, both her and my mum are fantastic knitters, and I picked it up again recently. I find I a good thing to do in the evenings to stop me snacking.

I learnt to knit using the Stitch n B!tch book and help from H's nan.

I think I prefer crochet but cab do both thanks to my nana... Attic24 is a good blog although I think she's mainly crochet.

Knitting doesn't make you old Belle! It's just a hobby like baking or sewing!

Your funny belle!
I don't knit but I did get a sewing machine for Christmas and I second the you tube tutorials ML
