Knit one, purl two, come see what you can do
I learned to knit and crochet in my early 20's and it has to be one of the most worthwhile things I have ever learned to do. In fact, I still have many of the first items I ever made. I lived in a very warm climate for a long time and well, it was just far too hot to knit however my fascination for handmade products has never waivered and since once again moving to a cooler climate, I have again taken up the challenge of knit one, purl two and other more challenging combinations.
