OK, I think I am starting to get it. Now, how do I know how many stitches to cast on when I begin to knit in the round? No pattern, I'm just going to knit this scarf till I run out of yarn.

Is it harder to knit on shorter circulars? I am thinking about buying a 12-inch circular so that I can knit this scarf in the round, so that I could do it the "normal" way (instead of crosswise) and...

OK, so if I do knit in the round, I will end up with a tube, right? I am wanting to make a scarf, so if I knit in the round lengthwise, I will end up with a tube. And then what do I do to the open...

Knitting flat on circulars

This has probably been asked and answered a million times, so I apologize in advance. I haven't tried my circular needles yet. If I use them to knit a flat thing, will they still make a stockinette...

What a dork! How do I READ my knitting?

I have now learned to PURL, yay! and I do pretty well unless I make a mistake--but when I do, I get stuck. I ended up with an extra stitch at the end of a row of ribbing, and I tried to unravel it a...

When you "carry the yarn" what happens to the part that is carried along? I don't know how to ask this right. But you will have an extra loop of yarn right? So what do you do with it at the end?

Knitting with boucle yarn

I bought some Lion Color Waves yarn because a customer in the shop said she had just made up a scarf with it and it turned out so pretty. I'm having trouble with it. The "curliness" of it makes the...

Oh, how funny!

I had the idea that Continental was the "right" way and I just couldn't get it. Then when I started with English, "it" would come and go. But then I got it, and it is even starting to...
