I'm thinking of a new weekly series--one where you talk to me and teach me about arts and design. Call it a collective conversation on crafts. This first post was an easy one. Friends, I need your help: This winter, my plan is to learn how to knit. My grandmother knit, my mom knit and I've just got to learn how. I bought this book and I'm looking for more suggestions. What are your favorite knitting how-to manuals? Favorite yarns? Favorite patterns? Where should I start? I would just love to conquer creating my own scarf and, hopefully, a little throw. Tell me, what's your advice?
