Re-learning to knit...help
I taught myself to knit a few years ago and recently discovered I have been knitting the wrong way all these years!
So now I am extra paranoid that the few things I have knitted in the past will fall apart in the washing machine!
To try to keep it short, lets just that when I knitted, my stitches were not twisted like they are suppose to be.( I was knitting through the back loop,half,of the stitch on my needle).
So today, I am trying to learn the correct way to knit. I use to knit continental style but I am having a very hard time completing a stitch with that method now so I am going to try another method to see if that helps.
Does this even sound logical or should I just give away my knitting needles and stick to crochet?
Thanks for any advice,tips and all feedback!
