Hello everyone:hug: I've just started knitting two weeks ago and love it:muah: I do need help. I am knitting a shrug and the directions say "knit twice into 1st stitch" please explain.

That would be an increase. Go to the Increases video and look for kfb, which is knit into the front and back of a stitch.

Instead of removing the stitch from the needle after you knit it knit into the back of the loop/stitch (http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/knitting-glossary) scroll down to k1 f&b.

I read your blog and I say thank-you. I am teaching my year 5 and year 6 class how to knit and at first some of my male students didn't want to learn, thinking it was to "sissy". :thumbsup: Now they are learning after I told them about you, and some of the male teachers want to learn also. Thank-you!!! :knitting: My students are now more focused and are really amazed at what their scarfs are beginning to look like.:yay:
I hope your mom is feeling better. I hope her computer is working just fine.
