It’s always a good idea to have a variety of tools in your knitting tool belt. Learn a variety of cast-ons and bind-offs, increases and decreases, and ways to keep track of where you are and where you’ve been. What does all that gobbledy gook on the yarn label mean, and how do you know if you have enough yarn for your project? What do all of those knitting notions DO? Come prepared to knit, listen, and ask questions.
