When I started knitting, socks were kind of my first "real" project.
I think I knitted a couple of ugly garter stitch scarves (in the wrong needle sizes at that) and then I went and made some dishclothes which were mostly to practice stitches, like seed stitch, moss stitch, stockinette, ribbing, and then some fancier things I found on random youtube tutorials. knit with me on youtube has some good tutorials, and an insane amount of them at that. Another was dandelion stitch.
After that, I jumped right into socks. Socks are really one of the most fun things to make, they knit up quick and even though they're simple you can do so many different patterns with them, you can make them lacey or cabled or with colors. I also think its nice because you're never really bored, there is always something engaging like turning the heal.
My first socks were kinda ugly, I helical knit them in red and white worsted acrylic yarn. I still have them somewhere, in a pile of dirty laundry ;-;>>139177
What knitting communities are you in? I've checked reddit and discord and they're literally full of troons. Last I checked reddit there was some dumb video about "muh genderqueer fibre artists" calling knitting "historically female dominated" which is something factually incorrect and easily visible on the wikipedia page lmao.>I am more sick of everyone simping for moids making the simplest thing ever. They always get twice the attention women get.
Where do you see this?
I'm not a fan of moids who knit because they're always pretentious and hilarious douchebags like picrel. I did learn to knit from RJ Knits on YouTube though and I like him. My grandpa crocheted and I don't mind him either.>Anyway, I wish people would come back to chrocheting lace gloves, collars, blouses etc. The patterns I find are from 40s-70s and the are unavailable.
Here is a blogspot I really like that features some lacier crochet stuff, idk if its what you are looking for thoughhttps://shyamanivas.blogspot.com/2014/10/all-pineapples-skirt.html?m=1
