I can't say I have ever been very good at crafty things I was hopeless at needlework at school- it took me a full year to make an apron and another to make a nightdress and neither of them were very good.
I have tried knitting several times but never managed to finish an item and always had great problems casting on-my stitches somehow always ended up too tight. However I would love to be creative and to actually make something. Does anyone have any tips?
What is the best way to learn how to knit?, Are there any books I should/could get that would help?
What is a good item to start with that won't take too long or be too expensive?
Has anyone else learnt later in life and been successful?
