I know I should find a knitting group, but I don't plan to visit it often, I
am just wondering something........
I am teaching myself to knit (nobody in my family knows how, so no one can
teach me) so I found some good tutorials online, then a few hours later I
realized that I was wrapping my yarn clockwise rather than counter clockwise
like they said, but it still worked and looked nicer than the swatch I tried
"the right way". So is there a name for this stitch, or did I just fluke on
Also I am proud to say that after about 1/2 an hour of trying to figure out
how to purl I finally did it! (LOL) I couldn't figure out how to pull the
yarn through the loop without using my fingers, then finally as my kid
surprised me by pulling my arm the needles slipped the yarn through, and I
was able to do it again........and again.......
Also, knitting is hard. A lady at the store said to try on really big
needles, so I bought big and small ones, and I am finding the small ones
easier to use.
