Hi there! I literally just began knitting – an avid knitter friend taught me how while I taught her how to crochet. I’m absolutely loving it, and loving it more than crocheting, for some reason. Because my friend has tendonitis in her wrists, she uses circular needles; I liked how they looked and how the weight of the project rests on the wire part, instead of the back of the needle, saving my wrists.
The problem I am having is, not with knitting, but with purling, with these needles. I’ve looked at the videos (and oh dear god, are they helpful) but it seems I’m struggling to make a purl stitch with these needles since I can’t angle it down very well. They end up tight or just wrong entirely. Any advice on this?
I need to get this down before Saturday. I am driving across country with my father and I’d like to just be able to do the pattern I’m working on without thinking (since I won’t have a connection to the intarwebs!).
Thanks for your help!
