OOOHHH! For circ. needles! LOL. I feel stupid now. xD Yes, I know this. It's not that confusing to me. :P
Yay for armwarmers! :D

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.
My opinions are based on research and experience. Ask for help!

Ok knitters and crocheters, I've been toying of learning to knit and/or crochet. How do I get started? Best way to learn if no one around me does this? Starter materials? Any other info is greatly appreciated.

For me, the easiest way was to watch a ridiculous amount of YouTube tutorials, find a channel that had videos that were easiest for me to understand, go out and grab the recommended yarn and needles/hook from those videos and just copy the presenter.

There will be messes, there will be failed patterns, and there will be frustration initially. But don't be discouraged, we all have to go through that phase, and you'll get there!
