Casting on, purling, slipping one and stitching two – if you're not down with the lingo, knitting can be a pretty daunting exercise. As winter approaches, if you're feeling a little sheepish about picking up a pair of needles, we suggest you pay a visit to Sheep and Stitch: a website to help you get clickety-clacking with confidence. It begins with the main moves broken down into simple how-to videos, then, once you've mastered the basics, you can move on to some simple patterns like a scarf, beanie, cushy cowl, and the piece de resistance: a fuzzy jumper.THere's also a comprehensive glossary, and plenty of knitting pop culture facts to keep you in the mood. Now there's no excuse for not having your woollies ready before winter hits.
