CONGRATULATIONS!!

I agree with Jan though ... I usually find that you have to get about an inch or so into your piece before you'll really start to see it take shape and look good. There are times when I'm just starting a project and I think I must have messed up the pattern horribly because it looks terrible but once I get that first inch or so done I can see that it is right after all and it starts to look good. Give it a chance to work itself out before frogging, you might be surprised!

This is pretty much the best sock class ever. It has great photos and explanations.

Me as well, I was one inch from smacking it!!! I was like that too when I started to knitt. I was scared at doing my first purl, and I ended up doing it!!! Even little tiny steps can be actually huge ones in life.

A Purl by any Name...
Is just a knit made from the wrong side of the fabric.

I've tried knitting in front of a mirror, but the man in the mirror was left handed!

Perhaps if I setup my camera on a tripod and knit in front of a mirror, then view the video reflected in a mirror?

Danke shane. Yes, that was my point exactly. Though I guess I didn't express my idea clearly enough to evoke the schadenfreude I intended.

Well, I think Schadenfreude was propperly evoked. I just needed to say NO NO because I didn't really take it serious but still wanted to say: if it were that simple... knitting would just happen infront, underneath and behind mirrors all the time.

Danke schön for the comment :D

My husband was very interested in the different was to do purls and asked if I would make a video to show my own way. I think, though, I have propperly explained, haven't I?

Yay! Anyone who strays out of their comfort zone is TOPS in my book!

Now, that said...I really gotta try to knit a sock....

Yaaaah for you!! Purling really does get easier and more comfortable with practice. And I thought it was really a bug on my screen at first too! LOL

Dollyce ... you REALLY do need to try socks! As fast as you are, you'd have a pair completed in no time!
