Over the last few weeks, I’ve been making a lot of How-To for advanced knitting techniques. Even though it’s been fun to do, a lot of my friends don’t actually know the basics of knitting. And it’s always something I’m eager to teach!

So I thought this Thursday I would explain the basics for all of you dying to learn how to knit and help spread the knitting bug! 🙂
