I am actually beginning to see the accomplishments I’ve been working towards and it’s really inspiring me to continue. This week I learnt the knit stitch and actually began knitting my scarf! For this step I’ve been following along with this video.
I liked this video because it was very simple and showed the actions up close with a lot of detail, as one of the problems I’m finding with the other video’s I’ve been using is that they are not detailed enough for a beginner to use.
This stitch went pretty smoothly until the end where I realized that mine did not look like the one in the video.
See how in this picture she has yarn on either side of the needle.
Whereas mine is all on one side.
It turns out that my problem was not actually a problem after all, and I can just continue knitting. At least this gave me the opportunity to find a community for any future problems with my knitting, and they do have a forum to post updates on projects you’re working on, so maybe I’ll try that.
