Local Yarn Store Haul! I bought 3 balls of wool, some circular needles, and away I go! Chris did great bringing home library books so I could learn. And Alder is already hanging over my shoulder wanting me to teach him. I keep telling him I have to figure it out first before I can show him how. :) I'm just going to knit some 6 x 6 swatches, basically "samplers" of stitches as I learn them. This way I can buy small amounts of wool, they don't have to match. I can impulse buy a ball just because I love the color or feel but don't have to make a whole sweater out of it.
