Many people are intimidated by knitting because they think they can't do it. However, knitting is quite simple; all you need to know are how to cast on and bind off. Most of the work is just repetition, mostly sewing loops together. With a little practice (and once you get past the boring parts), it's easy!
The hardest part about knitting is choosing what to make. With so many patterns and possibilities out there, it can be challenging to decide where to start. I've put together a collection of some lovely, beginner-friendly patterns that also look great as finished objects in their own right:
These are my absolute favorite mittens for winter – warm and cozy with quick cables that look beautiful on your hands. The pattern comes in two sizes, and the smaller size fits me perfectly.
These are my favorite socks for the summer. They're gorgeous, simple to knit, and have absolutely no seams. Plus, they're so light that you can wear them with sandals (if you can stand wearing shoes with them).
This is a great little pattern for learning how to cable without worrying too much about anything else. It's worked in the round so that you can try out knitting in the round without too much difficulty. It's a great beginner's project and something that you can easily use to show off your fancy new cable skills.
These are so easy to make, and they look fantastic as Christmas decorations around your home. Knit with wool yarn. They will make your home smell lovely over winter, too (if you don't dry them out properly before storing).
These are one of my favorite sweaters; the neckline is simply gorgeous, and the zigzag stitch pattern adds interest without making it too busy. The best part about this sweater is that you can quickly knit it on larger needles without coordination problems.
Good meals are only as good as the things you put on them. However, with a little bit of planning and creativity, you can make food that feels a whole lot better and looks fantastic too. My favorite meal ideas are simple yet nutritious and delicious – perfect for cold winter nights when the only thing you want to do is curl up in bed with a good book.
Holidays are extra special when there's someone special to share them with. Gathering around the dinner table with loved ones offers something special you can't get from anyone – especially when it's made easier by having something delicious on the table.
If there's one thing about kids that always trips me up when it comes to food, it's breakfast. If you have kids, you probably know that birthdays are a big deal at your house. There's shopping for presents, party planning, and invitations to address – not to mention the cake. The longer your 'to-do list gets, though, the more likely it is that something will slip through the cracks – even if it's just a minor detail like remembering to hang their cards on the fridge door.
