First things first! Before you start getting things together like needles, yarn, stitch markers, measuring tape, scissors, or anything else go join Ravelry. Ravelry is a massive social network for knitters and crocheters and a fabulous place to get help, inspiration and find new projects. You can join groups, look for patterns, when you start knitting you can post your projects.
Remember I will be posting new information on Wednesday.
