The thing that is so fascinating about Knitting I see so far… and it grows daily… is how I hated it… loathed it… I could not for the life of me learn to cast on with the long tail method…and I knitted so tight I was moving stitches with my nails… it was insane. WIth the internet, and this website I am learning so many things in such a short time its amazing. And every question I ask gets such great answers and so many tips and tricks and all the short cuts. I cant wait to see what I will be knitting in a year.
The other thing that is fascinating is that knitting is not as hard as I make it… I get so frustrated when I want to do something and know I can do it and the brain just… turns off. The concept of knitting in the round makes a St St still astounds me… and the simple answer to purl the next row… and NOT turn… made me laugh… one of those duh moments…So simple and I made it all so complicated. Thank you.
As I said the fascinating thing is the internet… Amy made a comment on a video that Eliisabeth Zimmerman said… such and such… so I googled her. And shes old, gone now… but one of her BIO’s said… She was adament on making your own patterns… do your own thing… and THAT has unleashed something I just cant explain… I want to create and make things… and behold… all these stitches already exist…lol. Thank God for Cables… thats what has my most attention right now.
Okay I rambled… thanks for the tips. I learn so much
