Before I learned to knit or crochet, I remember seeing handmade garments and thinking to myself: "I could never do is way too complicated!" Then one day I got up the courage to try, and eventually got the hang of it! My first washcloth looked like something out of a horror film...LOL But after practicing, I grew to love it SO much!! There is so much you can do with two sticks and thread! The process of using your hands to create anything you want is just beautiful. Now, I love helping others learn to knit, and show them that they can do it too! I started my own website that can help you learn new stitches, and make those difficult looking techniques, SO easy! It really is a lot easier than you think. ;) Angela
