ok, I can now cast on. Woohoo, now to actually be able to knit, well maybe I'll get there tomorrow. Got The Happy Hooker and Domiknitrix, both appeal to my style, since it's useless to have a pattern for something I know I'll never wear and don't feel like making because it seems like a waste of yarn.
Spend 2 hours in Barnes & Noble so I went through everything and these 2 books appear to be the best ones for me.
I'm just so happy I can cast on, I rock.
They both also make me want to get better as they have advanced patterns for things I really want to make but gotta learn a lot more to be able to make them.
That is the most important thing when it comes to books teaching you how, they really need to have items that appeal to your sense of style.
Thank you, ya'll rock!!
