My name is Jeff and I have just recently begun to knit. I want to thank you for providing so much information in a format that makes knitting understandable for those f us who have very little experience with any “crafty” skills. I was stuck trying to get my pattern correct on the first row (K3, P3). I kept coming up with what looked like an “X” on the top of my needle. Yesterday, I came across knittinghelp.com and saw your video on the basic knit and purl stitches. You demonstrate going from one to the other and I realized what I was not doing. I was failing to move the yarn to the front of my work when I purl. I have read several instructions but your video was a wonderful gift that helped me see what needed to be done. I have bookmarked this site so that I can continue to use it as a resource as well as be able, someday to share my experience as I become more proficient with my new skills.
Thank you so much,
