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
any other craft store:
*****Straight-across knitting (sweaters, scarves):
One set of straight knitting needles, size 10, 11, 12, or 13.
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
in it)
Stitch Holders (look like huge safety pins).

If you have any questions, please email me.
