First I tried some crochet. I have done this before. Why none of it came back to me I don't know? All I accomplished was a long chain of irregular stitches.
I did find a video on YouTube for left handed people, like me. Unfortunately it goes so fast that I had to keep pausing and restarting to see what she was doing. Not much help.
That being tried, I decided to see if I could teach myself to knit left handed. This went a little better. At least I was able to cast on some stitches that don't look too bad. I have never knitted before. I think I might like it.
The next steps are confusing to me. All I want to do is make a simple little scarf. The pattern calls for casting on 6 stitches and then doing a "garter stitch" until you have the length you want. I don't know what a garter stitch is or how to do it?
I'll keep trying. I applaud anyone who can knit or crochet! If you are left handed, I applaud you even more!
