I am currently on the journey of teaching myself to knit and I am so determined to figure it out! I am desperately wanting to knit a cardigan one day for myself and have never been one to have amazing patience with things like this or very technically minded (which is why machine embroidery suits me fine!). Anyway to my own amazement I can now do a rib, stocking stitch, add stitches and minus them thanks to my mum's advice and also my friend Liv (who revealed to me why my stocking stitch wasn't working - thread on the back for plain and thread in front for pearl - thanks Liv!).
Above is a random experiment trying out different things and below is my attempt at a triangle and a square which starts off as a triangle. I am having a knitting high obviously but there have been many many lows!
