I know how to purl, and knit. Well, I'm better at the purl stitch. But anyway, I would love to try a cable stitch. These hand warmers you knit on straight needles. Which is good because I still can't figure out how to use the circular needles, or the double pointed needles. There's no increase or decreasing (I don't know how to do that either.) I just need to find time to practice!
So I thought this would be a good project to start out with. I still need a knitting teacher, or a really good book.
