When I first learned to knit, it was a total disaster.
Like most first-time knitters, my initial project was full of lumps, bumps and dropped stitches. But with practice, I improved, moving on to simple socks, sweaters, and scarves some inspired by this delightfully speedy arm-knitting pattern.
That said, no matter how invested I got in my DIY projects. I was never really one to go too far outside the box. I rarely come up with my own patterns, and I usually stick to basics that I can wear or make for a loved one.
But now that Ive mastered more of the easy patterns, Im starting to take inspiration from some of the wackier knit and crocheted ideas out there. Artists armed with nothing but wool and needles make some pretty spectacular creations, from impressively teeny knit miniatures, all the way up to wildly colorful outdoor installations!
