Luckily, everything I learned last year helped me get to this point:
- By learning how to loom knit, I saw how each stitch was formed and learned how the stitches correspond with each another.
- Crochet taught me how to hold onto yarn with an extended figure and to be diligent with the movements even if the tension is wonky. The motions used in crochet eventually taught me how to needle knit in the continental style, and from there, nothing was going to hold me down.
Just like with crochet, I taught myself the basic stitches and got really eager to work on something challenging... so I decided to jump straight into a peacoat. Yeah, my partner thought I was crazy too.
"Why don't you start off with something small... like a scarf?" he said.
"NO! I'm stubborn and overly ambitious!" I replied.

Hope all of you living in the Northeast are staying warm and toasty after that blizzard. If you're in the southern hemisphere like me, make sure you slap on some sunscreen even if you're staying indoors!
