Teaching myself to knit!

Since I haven't been able to sew for a while (can't sit at the machine), I've been trying to teach myself knitting! It's something I can do lying down! Although it can get hard on the arms after a while...
I registered on Kollabora (an online DIY community) and found a few helpful videos there.
My first attempts aren't that glorious:

Casting on, so tight it curls on itself:

Knit stitches, with a few holes and extra stitches created out of thin air (started with 20 stitches and somehow that turned into 32 along the way!):

But I'm gradually getting the hang of it, at least I hope so;)
