Welcome! Questions get more attention when placed in the How-to section, but I'll get this one here. What you do with the double yo depends on what it's purpose is in the pattern. If you have a large eyelet in the pattern, the WS row will usually tell you to drop one of the yo's, and you'd purl into the one that's left.

If you have to work both of the yo's, then your best bet is to purl one and knit one on the WS row.

Hi! My name is Rachel (but you can call me Dari... it rhymes with starry ) and I'm new to the forums. I've been knitting since January, but so far I'm too much of a wuss to try anything more complicated than garter stitch (it's scary to go outside your comfort zone!!), so I make a lot of scarves. Luckily they make really great gifts, so I'm not just making them for nothing! I look forward to making new friends and finally getting over my fear of more "complicated" knitting here

Hello, I just joined and am looking forward to participating and getting to know all of you.
My name is Betty, I live in an active adult community in Sun City West, AZ (Phoenix area) with my husband. I have 2 adult sons and love my life.
Besides knitting, I love to crochet, needlepoint, read, travel, cook, and get together with friends & family for intimate dinner parties.
After I retired several years ago, I started knitting again and have knit mostly scarves, afghans and am knitting my first pair of socks. One sock on 2 circ needles. Love this technique.
Happy Knitting,
antwerpnative

Hi!
My name is Samantha. I'm twelve years old. I began knitting two weeks ago. I am currently learning to knit from a friend here in Houston, Texas. I have knit a misshapen dishcloth, a bracelet, and am currently working on a headband/belt. I look forward to expanding my knowledge with all of your help.

I want to say Hi to everyone I am a beginner knitter at 73 yrs. old. I do not drive so I spend a lot of time at home so I am making a goal to be able to knit projects to keep busy. I can knit, purl and bind. I am knitting a simple hat with stripes for my grandson. It's going ok but i made mistakes so it's not perfect.

I do have a question...When I have to knit 2 stitches together the stitches are so tight that I can barely knit them and get them off the left needle onto the right needle. Is it me? or is there a easier way? If someone can help I would be so grateful.

Hi Dolly,
If you post your questions in the "How To" section, you'll get more answers than just mine. Since you're a beginning knitter, you might be knitting very tightly. I know I did when I first started. This made it almost impossible for me to knit 2 together. Now, I relax my yarn a bit, and that stitch is not so difficult.

What a fabulous site. I just found it through yahoo babysweaters. I have knitted for many years and consider myself a novice with a lot to learn, I just started again about 2 yrs ago when I became a grandma to a beautiful baby girl, so I knit for her and for the children I take care of. Knitting keeps me sane and brings peace to my soul. I know I will be using this site a lot. Thanks for allowing me to join. Diane
