Finally, after many, many years I picked up my knitting stitches again. I forgot how much fun knitting is! I love that gently clanking sound that my aluminum needles make; it's so calming and therapeutical. And I love seeing how my knitting piece is growing (though it doesn't grow as quickly as crocheting!)
It is still going to be a while before I attempt a knitting project. For now, I'm just going to experiment with different stitches, try different textures, different yarns and needles.
This is my very first stitch! I tried it with size 2 (2.75 mm) needles and Caron Cakes yarn. Those needles are to thin for this yarn, but those are the only ones I have right now. I will need to buy more.

Cast on multiple of 9, plus 5.
I casted on 41 for this sample.
Row 1: slip the 1st stitch, k2, *yo, k2, skp, k2 tog, k2, yo, k1* to last two stitches, k1, p1.
Row 2: slip the 1st stitch, p across.
Repeat Row 1-2 for the pattern.
