Picking up stitches - where is the new yarn attached?
I am a new knitter who is on my first attempt at knitting a baby bootie. This is my first encounter with picking up stitches. I get how to do it (I watched the video on Knittinghelp.com about 5 times), but what I can't figure out is
Where do you attach the new yarn?
Is it cast on to the empty needle? Do you tie it to the bootie? How do I secure the new piece of yarn when I'm pulling it through to create the new stitches?
Thanks so much for your help in advance!! This has been driving me crazy for the last 2 days.
