Learning new techniques
I saw "Backward" knitting and also the short row and so tried them. On the short row I was kind of stumped because I could tell where I did the wrap. Then I remembered KNITTINGHELP! and thought perhaps there was a demo that Amy had. She did, does and I tried her method and can now do the short row with a wrap and you can't even tell it.

So, it is interesting to learn new techniques I never knew existed! Don't know what I will use them for right now, but, you never know. (THere is pattern on knitty.com call Lizard afghan or similar name that I think uses the short row. I may try a swatch of that to see how it works. (I Think I saw somewhere that short rows are used in sock knitting and in sweaters where you need more fullness).

I am doing an entralac afghan now so I may just try the knitting backwards to see if that is easier than flopping it over ever little while at the end of each row (10 stitch rows).


Happy Knitting everyone.
Linda
