Knitting project


#1

Hi there , my name is krissy I’m a beginner to knitting tough my self to knit from knitting book and watching YouTube videos.
I Would like to share how my top is coming a long having just completed the front.
:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
Started on the back was up to 13row and would have been knitting the cap sleeves but then disaster as I was taking the knitting out of my bag the end cap came off and my stitches fell off :frowning:️.
Could not work out how to correct the pattern so I had to undue all the work up to the bottom band . Feeling a bit disappointed as I now have to start again :frowning:

Sorry to hear that you had to rip out all that hard work. Love the color reminds me of the sun.


#3

Thanks :grinning: Just got the rib finished on the back today so I’m on track again just wish I knew how to correct the pattern of i make mistakes :joy:


#4

If you think we might be able to help could you give us the name of the pattern and where you are having the problem


#5

You done so well on this, knitting beautifully.
It may help in future to use lifelines. Then the ripping out although still painful, doesn’t mean a complete re-do.


#6

Hi there ,I’ve just looked at the video on your link and it makes sense to use a life line when doing lace or fancy knitting .
Thank you for sharing this tip and I’ll give it a try when knitting the back of my top .

I’m ok at the moment with my pattern thanks the problem before was making a mistake on the pattern row and not being able (not know how ) to correct it with out pulling it all back to start again :thinking:
People have suggested that I use a life line to help me so I will be trying that on my back of the jumper I’m knitting

Oh, Krissy;
I would have cried. I have never quite got the hang of knitting and am amazed by anyone who can teach themselves. I can crochet pretty much anything without using a pattern. My grandmother began teaching me before I started school. I will turn 63 this year.
I have tried to knit and been so frustrated. I get the stitches so tight that they will not move on the needles or so loose that they fall off when the needles are tipped. Just when I think everything is going smoothly, I find that I have dropped a stitch.
My mother was very good at knitting and so was my grandmother. They used to put their knitting down, but jamb the knitting needles through the ball of yarn to prevent the work from escaping from the needles. I have added this helpful hint to maybe prevent any frustration or tears in your future.
You should be very proud of yourself.
Vicki

Hi Krissy,

Love the pretty yellow color of your yarn. It reminds me of the sun.

Keep trying, and do not give up!
