I’m fairly new to knitting, but have always had trouble doing the stockinette stitch at any real pace. For example, I’ll do a row of purling and then when I go to do the row of knitting, it’s so slow and tedious! I can’t get the yarn away from my left needle very well. I end up having to dig down to get the yarn away from the needle so I can then go upward with the knit stitch (make sense?). :wall:
I know I’m not knitting too tightly (even though that’s how it feels when I can’t get the yarn away from the needle) because when I finish a row and go back to examine my work, the stitches are so long and hole-y and loose! Argh! I don’t know what to do or how to make this easier/quicker.
If you have any suggestions so that I don’t lose my mind, I’d appreciate it!
