i was starting to think i was missing a "knitting instruction" gene...
my buddies @ my favorite knitting shop (Lettuce Knit, in Richmond VA) have a wealth of experience like you, and can cut through instructions without a pause.
any words of wisdom on best resources (books, etc) that would help?
i now access your site (i learn best by observing, and your clips are great!) and have Vogue Knitting Quick Ref and Stitch and Bitch
Some of the directions I'm reading are more advanced than those.
thanks for your help!
