First...HOWDY! I'm Chris, and previously posted as Scared2Knit. :oops: This site has been pivotal in me learning to knit, and I am no longer scared. (Well, except of DPN's)
ANYHOW, I am having some beginner questions. My tension is ok, but are there any good tips for making it more consistent? It's just a LITTLE bigger on one side than the other, if that makes sense.
The other, does your speed depend on the needles you use? I notice that Amy uses metal needles, and that she is the speed queen. I am using bamboo, which I really like the feel of in my hands, but is that a hindrance?
Also...last one, I promise...I am not having to touch the tip of the needle when taking the stitch off in either knitting or purling. I just scoop it and pull it through. alot of the times I don't even touch the needles together (in knitting I do it more than in purling. after the first row in purling they don't touch except for the first stitch of a row.)
Ok, that should keep you busy for a little while. :lol I'm gonna go and get back to work on my "Zeeby's Bag" that is going to take til next Christmas to finish.
