Knitting Fool

I go through phases all the time. The last couple of days I've been knitting like crazy. I go through this phase every couple of years. My most popular item to knit are dish cloths. Many people love them and request them from time to time. They are so easy too, because you don't have to cast on or cast off.
But recently, I found this website with video tutorials on how to knit. I took 4-h classes when I was a little girl and the basic knit stitch always stuck with me. I've always wanted to know how to do more, but when I look at those beginner books for knitting my eyes glaze over.
These video tutorials are very simple and easy to understand.
So, if you've always wanted to learn how to knit, this website is highly recommended.
The videos are less than 2 minutes apiece.
I know I should have a picture of the things I've made so far, but I don't.
Maybe I'll add one later.
And to my family: if you get something that is hand knitted for Christmas, act surprised!

Oh knitting. That is my one unfulfilled new year's resolution from this year. I suppose there's still time but I highly doubt it's going to happen. Maybe if I watch those videos you linked to I'll feel more inspired.
