Ok, I’m a noob. My grandmother taught me how to knit like a million years ago, but she was left handed and she taught me totally “backwards”. And then I mostly forgot anyway. Now I’m trying to re-teach myself.
I knitted a few practice swatches and they seemed ok. I’m now attempting my first project in the round. After starting over like four times, it seemed to be going pretty weill, but I was having a heck of a time getting my needle through some of the stitches. I thought maybe I was knitting too tight. I thought maybe it was because my bamboo neddles aren’t super pointy. (I thought about sanding them pointier…) After poking around here, I descovered taht I am doing “combined Knitting” ( I had no idea there was such a thing, let alone that I was doing it.) and since I am not turning and purling the stitches are oriented strangely.
So, after all that, my question is if I start knitting regularly now will it make a noticable difference in the work? What if I continue to combined knit but wrap the yarn the other direction (as in the very helpful video)? I really don’t want to start over again. Should I just keep doing what I"ve been doing even thought it’s irritating?
Thanks so much for any insight you have.
