New Rows & Rosy New Beginnings

Welcome back! Up to this point, you’ve learned how to cast on, and knit the first row on your needles. Now, we’re going to continue knitting by continuing on the second row.

Your needles should look like this:

first-row

Hold the needle with the knitted row in your left hand, and the empty needle in your right hand. Now, you’re going to take the second (empty) needle, and put it through the first loop on your original needle, like so:

Then, take the longer strand of yarn (attached to the ball of yarn – not the short one), and wrap it around the end of the right needle. Pull it closer to the first knit on the left, so it cuts between the left needle and the right needle. It should look like this:

Then, holding the long yarn tightly, pull the right needle back through the first kit on the right needle, catching the long yarn and making a knit on your right needle. Your right needle should now be in front of your left needle.

Slide that off of the left needle, and solely onto the right one. You’ve made your first knit!

Continue that process (in through the loop, wrap the long yarn around the right needle, hold yarn firmly, pull right needle back, and pull off of the left needle) until all of your yarn is now on the right needle. You’re knitting!

If this wasn’t clear, here and here are great videos to visualize it a little easier.


In this blog, I want to share with you how I found where God willed me to go to college. I knew around Junior year of high school that all I wanted was His will to be done. So, that became my biggest prayer – “Thy Will Be Done,” and that He would make it “blatantly obvious to me.”

Let me tell you that those are fighting words. If you pray those words wholeheartedly, Christ is going to move mountains in your life to let you know what He wants for you VERY clearly.

He made it very known to me which university He desired me to attend, through my friends, family, and the direction in which He was pulling my heart. After a year and a half here, I know that Christ knows me so much better than myself, and I couldn’t be happier anywhere else!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, on your own intelligence do not rely. In all your ways be mindful of Him, and He will make straight your paths.” –Proverbs 3:5-6
