Knitting is one of the most common fiber crafts and can be very easy to pick up! The craft typically requires 2 knitting needles, but can call for more if you are using Double Pointed Needles (DPNs) to create a circle, such as when making a hat or a sock. Some of the tools that you may need are:
Ravelry - A free website with organizational tools for knitting, crochet, and spinning projects. The site consists of forums where you can connect with other crafters, patterns, yarn databases, and more! A great place for beginners and experts alike.
Knitty - A free online magazine that is issued seasonally. There are patterns, articles, and tutorials that are updated several times each year.
