I am a beginner knitter and I am doing well…sticking to it. I have always quit in past years. Now I am finally making progress. I have 4 projects going because I then have the luxury of not getting “stuck” when I make a mistake. So when something goes wrong and I cannot correct, I move to another knitting project until my once a week class. The problem is I cannot fix mistakes on my own. I have already bought at least 10 books, most very good for showing how to correct problems visually. But, not matter what, I can’t follow how the yarn should look and where it should go. I can’t understand nor see, for example, if I drop or make an incomplete stitch, what goes where before nor after. Also, like if my needle comes out at the end of a row, I can’t be sure that I am putting the needle back the right way so therefore, I don’t know if I am right or wrong. This goes for everything I am doing….a dishcloth, a shawl…and just basic knit purl stitches with increases and some decreases. Wherever I make a mistake, that is it. One excellent book shows corrections in a way that is easy to really see, but the problem is that in the first picture of the mistake, the yarn is labeled…for example, large loop, dropped stitch, ladder, working yarn, but then the following pictures that show the solutions don’t continue with the labels, so then I cannot follow what is where and what goes where. So the text is good, but it doesn’t do any good when I can’t follow what is what. So, I just can’t see it. My teacher tries to show me but it is never clear. Any suggestions or any advice??? YouTube is great, but again, I can’t find the very basic information I need. Hope someone can help.
