I’m very new to knitting and really enjoying it. But I picked up a book at the library and on the cover is a picture of a sweater-in-progress with FOUR NEEDLES in it! I nearly keeled over. I am just trying to master two needles and cannot imagine using four at the same time. So my questions are, Why would someone use four needles rather than two? What are the advantages? And seriously, how hard is it? (I am imagining that it’s pretty tricky.)
Thanks in advance for your time answering my newbie questions!
