Last night I decided to try to learn how to knit on my own. Mom’s way too busy to teach me, so the next best thing is Youtube! There are some pretty neat and helpful videos out there, and this lady from knittinghelp.com has filmed things really well. She explains things calmly, takes her time, and it’s all a blessing lol.
I tired some of the things she mentioned in her video, like the purl stitch, and I’m doing it in the english style, I find it much easier than the continental style.
I make several mistakes, all of them, or most, when I let my mind drift and I stop paying direct attention to what I am doing. My main problem at the moment is seeing a mistake is there, but not knowing how to fix it. I can’t really understand, or see how the yarn moves when it is still.
Hopefully with practice I will begin to understand how things work and I’ll be able to fix things instead of just destroying everything and starting again (doesn’t bother me for now as I am just practicing over and over again).
I also have to find a video that explains how to join two ends together, or else I’ll be making a never ending scarf lol.
