First of all, loving this site, it has been very helpful already! My mother taught me to knit when I was very young, and some of my fondest memories is of her dragging this sweater that seemed to take years to finish, but when she did (finally) finish it, it was gorgeous. Unfortunately it has been years since I picked up a knitting needle, so I am woefully out of practice.
I decided to pick it up again because I wanted to do this with my daughter as she has taken an interest in knitting, so I have been giving myself a crash refresher course.
I have found it seems to be coming back to me, especially the memory that my mother taught me as a lefty, but I am a little concerned about the scarf/shawl I am working on. My stitches seem to be doing something rather interesting, it’s very ummm wavy. I think it is maybe due to the length of my needles, not very long so it’s kinda bunched up. So just wanted someone else who has definitely more experience to give me an idea? Any help/advice would be appreciated!!!
