It occurred to me recently that I want to learn to knit. I don't know where to start. Yes, I know I have to buy a book, but which do you recommend?
Most books have all sorts of girly stuff on them or baby stuff ... and well, there just aren't any girls or babies in my life. At least none that would appreciate a novices knitwear. I did find a book that had very tastefull and modern cushions that I may like to do.
I will probably buy everything online and I need to know:
• What are the first tools I should buy
• What is the first kind of yarn/wool/whatever I should buy
• What books would you recommend that don't ONLY projects for women
• and any other advice you can give.
