After a decade of half-hearted attempts, I have finally overcome my fear of the knitting monster. Whee! Anybody have any fun patterns for a n00b knitter to try? I’m slow and clumsy, but quite enthusiastic *g*

And here for my own reference, a list of the sites that I was constantly referencing as I fumbled through it:

The Official Lion Brand Site — Which has the best illustrations out of all the ones I saw, plus everything in video, word and illustration formats.

My Craftbook’s Lessons — A much smaller site whose photos and wordings just made more sense to me than some other places.

The Pages — Good for looking up specific techniques, and heavy on illustrations.’s Pages — This was the one that made casting on make the most sense to me.

Now, off to practice ribbing and shaping!
