I’m so glad I found this forum!
I picked up knitting needles one week ago and I’m teaching myself how to knit. I’m still in the practicing stages.
My question is this: As I was practicing my knit stitch, I noticed that with each row I was gaining stitches. My book says nothing about this. Where they are coming from and how do I avoid them?
In a related note, I bound off for the first time last night, now my piece is still attached to the skein of yarn. My book also does not cover what to do with the tails of yarn at the beginning and end of my piece. I think I need a new book.
Any help would be much appreciated!
