I don't for shawls and afghans, but will for wearables. If it's a sweater with a pocket, I knit the pocket first and use that as a swatch.

It's good that she got to see it. I'd probably donate it, but you might also finish it and keep it to remember her.

Yep, normal.
If you knit one way and just feel annoyed by it, try another. It's supposed to (eventually) be fun, so don't feel as if you have to keep going on a technique that doesn't suit you. Use...

They're assuming you're right-handed and I'll assume you're making the smallest size.
If I'm reading that right, you'd start the row with 33 stitches. If you cast off four, which should leave a loop...

Yep, it's hairpin lace with the loops laced together, no other crochet skills required. It should be easy to fix. If you don't have a hairpin lace loom, you can make one out of cardboard.

If what you want is to knit a seamed piece without seams (which I will every time I get a chance!) I'd pick up one more stitch under an arm and keep the moss stitch pattern going.

If you hand-knit i-cord, it almost always shows a "seam" of loose stitches down the back. That's easy to pick up--really, all you need to do is run a circular needle through the cord and knit the...

That was hard to understand, so don't feel silly!

May I add that when you get stuck or make a mistake, we're all here. If there's a knitting mistake that can be made, I think I've made it, so nothing's going to shock, surprise or stump us :)

It works, honest. I haven't made these socks, but have used a similar pattern many times. The slipped stitches are what give the thick, cushy texture to the whole thing. You can do a similar pattern...

Yes, it's for afghan/Tunisian stitch. Unless you're using that particular technique, you don't need one even if you're making an afghan.

70 is the same size as a lot of sewing thread and was used for very fine lace. It's cotton, so not a good thing for reinforcing sock heels and toes.

You could take a good look at one ball of it and...
