Hi Artchic and welcome to KH! Take a look at the video for the knit stitch and see if it helps. There are at least a couple of ways to do it and you can find one that feels more comfortable to you.
Welcome too, HeathersHobbies. Yes, never enough yarn, that fits right in here with us enablers. Watch out when the yarn starts to take over the dining room table however.
Glad to have you both join us. Questions, answers and comments welcome.
