As requested by Jon i went ahead with giving knitting a shot, which is a good idea as my project cannot continue much further if i do not at least give it a shot.
It was a steep learning curve as i am trying to learn using to the videos found on the internet. I went out and bought thin wool and needles without asking those i know who knit what was the best. I found that knitting as a beginner can be sore, trying to control the needles and manuver them in small precise movements has nearly given me blisters.
I have been told since that i should use chucky needles and wool as it is easier to hold and work with.
The poor progress attained after a 4 hours.
