I have attempted the White Diamonds knitting pattern in Leisure Art’s Our Best Knit Baby Afghans at least five times. In truth, it is probably closer to ten. Still, I refuse to give up because I have a bag of yarn dedicated to this particular pattern.
I’m a self-taught knitter and not terribly confident about my skills. So, I sat down with Teach Yourself Visually Knitting this weekend and reviewed basic knitting stitches. I love this book! It helped tremendously in teaching me how to move my hands more effectively. And I’m finally making real progress!!
(This is just a test run. I will probably knit this entire skein of yarn with this pattern as practice, then pull out the yarn I bought originally for this project.)
