No apology necessary!
We love ALL knitters - any gender, any religion, any nationality.

Hi Marietta! I'm the opposite: comfortable with knitting, and just now learning to crochet. Maybe we should sit beside each other and learn together!

Hi Jan! Welcome to the KH Forum!
I'm a big fan of all the European knitting magazines. I always gravitate to them when browsing our bookstores here in the States. Maybe one day, I will come visit England! That would be so wonderful.

Thanks for the input!

Ok do I cut 4" of contrast color and tie a knot of main color leaving 4"and just begin with MC, P13.?????? I pretty much get the code after that, just don't want to mess up the Break business & MC. Karen
Hi Karen! Welcome to the KH Forum!
Yes, just start purling with the main color now. You can tie a knot if you want, and work in the ends when you finish the project. Welcome back to knitting!
