To be honest, I've never found a way to hold the yarn by wrapping it around my fingers. I'm a "total thrower". I started off crocheting, but when I took a class with a friend and the teacher kept...

Not sure, but it looks like you have 2 knit stitches together right there, and the rest looks like K1, P1 ribbing. Are my eyes playing tricks on me?

Don't know if it's that, or if it's the difference between the Wool Ease I'm using and the heavy worsted that was called for. I used to knit so tight I could barely fit the second needle through the...

Got the first pair done. Went down a size and they're still "roomy" so I'll just tell them they can be used as a layer over other gloves if need be.

Jan, yes, that's what I mean. It's like the new strand won't stay anchored - maybe because it's just 3 stitches? I've watched the video on picking up stitches on the site, but it doesn't seem to work...

It is a bit confusing, for sure.

I know you repeat the stitches in between the asterisks - K2tog,K3 - but not sure about the last part. I'm guessing you work that pattern over the last 20 stitches. What are you knitting?
