This is what I get for teaching myself to knit from books.
The other night my hubby decided he wanted me to teach him to knit. I showed him my way and he complained that it was terribly awkward. Well, poo on you, I thought, if you can find something better then do!
Then today I wandered on to the knitting videos and pulled up the Continental Method video on how to knit, watched for a few seconds, and realized that I had found a terribly awkward way to knit. I would have the yarn wrapped around my pinkie finger, then after I stuck the needle through, I’d pick the yarn up with my finger and thumb and wrap it around the needle. After I got a hang of doing if the video’s way, I realized how much more efficient it was. I’m knitting much faster now. Now the circulation doesn’t get cut off from my pinkie finger, either.
So I guess I’ll eat a little crow tonight.
