Welcome to the crafty world! How is learning to knit going? Are you learning with online vids or are you going to a yarn shop?
Just a warning - once you learn to knit socks you'll be done for. It is beyond addicting.
Online vids. There is also a book floating around that explains the various stitches and how to work through them. I'm going to get some better needles and the book next week. I can already cast on and do a very slow knit stitch.
I would love to learn to knit. I have crocheting mostly down. Don't look on Esty for patterns, just don't. Also if you keep going with knitting/crocheting I would get bamboo needles. They are pretty cheap on ebay and they are way comfy.
I also want to learn quilling. I keep looking at kits. And I have finally started working on my Warhammer models.
I currently have a pair of bamboo needles, albeit they're the somewhat larger ones (7mm). I'm going to get a pair of smaller needles next week and practice on those.
As for quilling, I got started by buying a $15 kit from a craft store. The kit had some paper, a tool (which I didn't realise until I got back, opened it and realised I had 2), some glue, a ruler and some very handy patterns.
I use a miniature canvas to help me get the sizes I want when I'm gluing my designs together.
