May I ask you a question, if you don't mind. As a new knitter when you were learning to knit, how long did it take to get a good rythm and efficiency?
Just wondering. I'm a new knitter, but have been discouraged lately to pick up the needles, because I'm just finding it more difficult than crochet.
I made a wider one and use it to hold my hair back while I wash my face.
