Thank you so much for this wonderful website. It got me through my first project (what was supposed to be a scarf for my daughter and turned into a blanket for her stuffed animals instead). Now I’m trying to knit a project bag from Two Old Bags. I was doing just fine until I got to the part of the pattern that says I should do a pick up round and go all around the edges of the rectangular piece I’ve knitted so far…now I’m utterly confused. Because the side I’m supposed to knit next isn’t on the needles…it’s the short side of the rectangle. Do I slip it onto the needles first and then knit? Any thoughts?
Maybe I should just stick to something easier for a while! I have quickly become addicted to knitting…am finding it wakes me up better than coffee does (though coffee’s an essential item too!).
