Knitting Tools for Absolute Beginners. Hi, Guys! I’m Kristen and Welcome to Studio Knit. We are starting our Absolute Beginner Knitting Series with Knitting Tools. I thought that the very first place we should start is for
you to know what you need so that you can plan accordingly. Pretty simple. This is what you need. There are four materials you’ll want to have on hand: Yarn, Needles, Scissors, and a Tapestry Needle. So first, yarn. You will soon realize that there are SO MANY yarn choices and deciding which yarns to add to your haul can be half the fun of knitting.
For the purpose of this Series, we are keeping it super simple and will discuss just the
basics about yarn weight, fiber, and even the color in our next lesson. Two, Knitting
Needles. We will be using Straight Knitting Needles in this Series. It’s two identical
knitting needles that are straight like pencils. There’s a variety of Knitting Needle types,
sizes, lengths, and materials and we’ll go all into more detail about this later on Day
3. Three, Scissors. Scissors are probably the easiest item on your list to check off.
Basically, you just need something that cuts yarn. Hey, I’ve even used nail clippers and
my dog’s grooming shears when in a bind. A Tapestry Needle. So, we’ll go way more into greater detail on Day 4. I just want to mention this little item right now, so you’re aware
it’s something you need to add to your knitting haul. Nothing to worry your pretty little
head about right now. We don’t even use it until Week 4 of our Series! And if this Knitting Series has been helpful to you, please LIKE up this video, it really helps me out. Now
that we’ve identified the four items that you need to have before you start knitting,
here is my simple suggestion for what to do next that will help you stay on track. So,
your ACTION ITEM of the Day is: Identify the knitting materials available to you for free.
So, you might already have scissors, get them out of the junk drawer and if you have a family or friend who is a knitter, ask them if they have any knitting tools that they’d be willing to give or lend you. If you’d like more ideas for where to shop for knitting tools, check

Knitting. How easy was that? Okay, so I hope this information about the knitting tools
