If so....any advice on books to start to learn? I think I'm going to knit scarves for the rest of my life...everyone I know will get one! So I'm just looking for books that would cover the basics. I'm doing this to keep my hands busy in times of boredom (since I've given up eating potato chips, candy & chocolates....and will be quitting smoking)....and its the hands that need something to do! Thanks ladies!
