Introduction to knitting

So this past Thursday night four co-workers and I went to Ruhama's Yarn & Needlepoint near Bayshore Mall. We took a 2 hour introduction to knitting class. I already know how to crochet but that only involves one crochet hook and my other hand is free. I had some issues at first with how to have a needle in each hand and still hang onto the yarn, but I eventually got it. We started by casting on, then learned the knit stitch, then the purl stitch and finally we knit 2, purl 2 and then casted off. Here is what I made in the two hour class. Hopefully I can get better, otherwise it will take me until Christmas just to make a scarf.
