I've done a lot of knitting and prefer Aran style patterns, but have never had much luck with lacy knits. This is mostly because some of the instructions make no sense to me, e.g.:
'SSK = Slip 1 stitch, Slip next stitch, Knit these two slipped stitches together
To me that sounds just like a normal knitting together of 2 stitches in the conti manner. Am I right or could someone enlighten me?
