Sunny Sunday

I made it out to the haberdashery near Angel today. Was a really cute and small store. I had a chat with the salesperson about which needles to take. I thought since I haven't done anything for years (I could almost say decades), I figured there may be some needles good for beginners. But he said any needle size will be fine. So I opted for a 4.5mm because it seemed a good medium needle. Very versatile. I might of course be completely wrong.

Anyway, here it is. I LOVE these needles. They feel really good to hold because they are wood. Not too slippery and of course they don't tend to get cold like metallic needles sometimes do.

Now all I have to do is figure out how to start this whole thing. I remember vaguely doing it as a child. But I am sure there will be some helpful online resources to get me started.

I opted to only get one color of yarn. I figured I will just play around with that and see how it goes. Once I get confident with my (lack of) knitting skills I will purchase another color and probably start knitting a scarf. I love scarves! And they are probably the easiest thing to start with.
