I’ve tried many times to learn to knit. This time, I’m determined to finally do it, but I’m still stuck with the same problem I’ve always had. I learned to hand sew at an early age and still hand sew (and machine sew) and hand embroider. As a result, I chronically pull knitting stitches too tight to even maneuver the needles or pull stitches off, and I do it subconsciously, so I really don’t know how to stop doing this.
Any tips, tricks, or advice?
(Using Continental method, by the way. That’s what I was exposed to first by my grandmother, and I can’t wrap my brain around English.)
