First I want to say how good the people on the forum are at helping anyone and everyone. Even if it seems like a stupid question to someone who has been knitting for a while the question is answered and the questioner is encouraged.
Second I have been knitting for a little over a year and my accomplishments are not great but I am getting there. I seem to spend as much time reading about knitting and knitting techniques as knitting so I understand more that I have implemented…
However, I seem to see a trend in many of the answers being given to question, especially if the questioner introduces themselves as a new knitter. It seems to me that the answers being given are from one knowledgeable knitter to another. I spent a number of years teaching “adults” for a US Government agency and one important thing I learned was to make sure that a foundation had been laid before getting to the actual question. In other words make sure that the teacher and student were on the same page.
I have been seeing a number of responses that answer the question asked and answer it well but I was not sure if the questioner understands enough of the basics of the technique to understand the answer.
Again the help and sharing here is outstanding, just try to remember where you were in your skills when you had this same question and what information you really needed not what you asked.
Please make sure you give a little foundation information before you answer the exact question.
Thanks again for all the help I’ve been given here.
