Hi, my names jackie and i am from Australia
I have just started knitting about 3 days ago and have been trying every hard, i have been crocheting from about 9-10 years old and am 21 now. I’m finding knitting very hard
I bought some cheap needles $3.99 AU (i know shun shun) from LYS. and there metal but i feel clumsy with them i and trying to learn to knit (coming from a crochet background) and i keep hitting things a they feel very hard to control. :doh:
The needles are very slippery and i cant seem to keep a grip. then they’ll grip really hard on the wool then realise (like they’re taunting me) and i’ll pull the needle right out of the work. :crying: :doh:
Is it that i need to practice more or get some better needles? i thought this would come easily come from a crocheting background. Are needles supposed to be really long, these are like 14 inches? i would love some about half that length its that normal or will the needle control come with time.
