Hi everyone -
Well, I have finally decided to take knitting seriously. I have been crocheting since I was about 7. My beloved Gramma taught me how to crochet, embroider and sew. Unfortunately we did not get around to quilting lessons before she died. She did not know how to knit. I have had many chances to learn how to knit, but it seems like the timing was never right. About 6 years ago I decided to teach myself how to knit. I got the basics down, but my stitches were uneven, I was slow and I could not do all the fun things that I could do with crocheting. Fast forward to now, the arthritis in my thumbs has gotten extremely painful, stress level is through the roof, and I have way too many boxes of mismatched, unused yarn sitting around my house. I picked up my needles again and lo and behold it is actually making sense this time around. I am still slow, but my stitches are more even and I am approaching it as a calming activity instead of how much can I get done in one sitting.
Now my big question - how do I pull my needle out, rip out to the point of an error and then put my needle back in so the stitches are on there correctly? That is truly bugging me!
