Hi everyone, I haven't been here for a while (Life has been happening, the way it does sometimes, and getting in the way of knitting) but I'm back now and, surprise surprise, I'm asking for help.
I want to start knitting Vyvyan Neel's Friday Scarf from Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/friday) but reading over the pattern in advance, I found the following in the list of abbreviations:
SSK = slip, slip, knit these 2 sts together
SSP = slip, slip, purl these 2 sts together
Surely if I slip a stitch (or two stitches) it (or they) will then be on the right-hand needle. How am I then supposed to knit (or purl) it?
I'm really hoping someone can help a poor inexperienced knitter!
