Well, I have been at this, lately part-time only, but I think I need some help. I use the "long-tail" cast-on and have had scant success with the knit stitch.
My question is, can a newbie learn at the knitting night for men? I think it is Monday nights, but I really don't remember.
In any case I need some coaching, my technique just isn't fully-developed yet. I cast-on, rip out the cast-on stitches and start over. I guess I am waiting for a sturdy, solid cast-on before I advance to knitting and purling.
Incidentally, Baz stands for my initials, which is a long-term nickname and rhymes with "jazz". My real name is Bryan.
