I’m planning on trying out Quant from the latest issue of knitty (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTquant.html). I’m a very new knitter, and am perplexed by the instruction “pick up and purl stitches.” The video on this site seems to cover picking up and knitting only (I think ;-)), and the interwebs have been at a loss to explain this to me!
I would love instruction! This may be a tall order, but better yet would be pictures. That seems to be the way I’ll learn best. I haven’t yet learned to purl, though it looks simple; maybe learning that will shed light on this instruction. But in the meantime, thank you for your help!
