How to make a slip knot

The slip knot is the way you will begin almost every knitting project. 

Make sure you have a little bit of a tail (approximately 4-6").  Make two simple loops. Take one loop and insert it into the other loop. Pull ends to tighten slightly. Place it on the needle.

What's nice about a slipknot is that it's adjustable, so I tighten it up under the needle and it's ready to go.
