So I’ve finished my first knitting project - almost. All that remains is binding off, which is something my friend who taught me how to knit didn’t have a chance to cover, and we haven’t had a chance in the last few months to get together, so I dug up a video on it.
youtube.com/watch?v=h9rfgG63xJM&feature=channel - specifically that one.
It looked simple enough, but when I went to bind off the scarf, I tried to keep the yarn looser to make it easier, but all I’ve succeeded at doing is making a mess. I’ve casted several stitches off, but it gets increasingly more difficult to proceed, to where I can barely move the yarn on the needle, much less pull it up and over.
I’m about ready to scream and throw the entire thing out the window.
It’s a bulky yarn, and I found it easy to work with initially, at least until now. I’m wondering if I’m just doing something wrong, resulting in it being far more difficult than it has to be, or what.
