knit (nit)

transitive verb
1. to make (cloth or a garment) by interconnecting loops of yarn or thread in rows of stitches by means of a pair of special needles or a machine
2. to form into cloth in this way rather than by weaving
3. to form (one or more stitches of the basic type) “K2, P2” means “knit two stitches, purl 2 stitches”
Boy, I sure with I could knit... I've tried so many times, to no avail. I'd like to be able to say that it's the counting that I can't handle, and that's definitely part of it!, but I can't even get past the "cast on" stage, never mind learning all the different types of stitches. It's shameful, really, but I've flat out given up on ever being able to knit. I've heard crochet is a little easier so maybe I'll give that a shot the next time I have any desire to feel like a failure. ;p
