If anyone is interested in learning how to knit, you will need the
following which can be found at Wal-Mart, Hobby-Lobby, Michael's, or

One or two skeins of worsted-weight yarn, color of your choice.
*****Knitting-in-the-Round (socks, mittens, stocking caps, pouches):
1 or 2 sets of double-pointed needles, size 3, 4,5, or 6.
1 skein of worsted-weight yarn, color of your choice.
****Additional Accessories (nice to have but not a necessity):
Point Protectors(look like little rubber bullets)
Tape Measure or Knitting Ruler (looks like a metal ruler but has holes
