Hi All! I’m a newbie at this knitting thing and although I do several other crafts, for some reason I can not get the hang of knitting and it’s driving me crazy! I had a crying, whoe is me jag last night and my DH just kept telling me, “No you aren’t stupid, you’ll get it”, will I? :??
Now for my problem - the whole knit stitch is what’s confusing me. I have a few books, but they don’t tell you much. I’m using #13 needles, which if what a lady I work with suggested, but they seem so big and weird in my hands. I have the casting on pretty well, but I’m not sure how tight to make the stitch. From what I’ve read, I think only as tight as to slide easily on the needle. So then I come to the knit stitch. I think I have an idea of what to do and I finish a row and look at the back side and it looks like I have a whole bunch of “loops”. How tight do I make the new stitch?
I know someone here will have mercy on me and be gentle. I’ve read several posts and know I’m in good hands.
