holding the yarn...tension?
Hey all :]
So, i just started doing this whole knitting business a few days ago, and im loving it! Ive gotten the knit stitch, and the purl stitch down and have been practicing those by alternating ever other row along with some other techniques here and there.
However, i do have one question at the moment.
I'm not really understanding the need to hold the yarn a certain way, like how some people wrap it around their pinky twice and then around their index finger or whatever.
I tried holding it a certain way, but i just feel like the yarn gets in the way when i try to wrap it...
Am i liike, holding it wrong? or does it just take getting used too?
I know it helps with tension, but again..i dont really understand the concept of that! lol.
So at the moment im kind of just letting the yarn droop i guess you can say and grabbing it when i need to wrap it around the needle.
Thanks everyone!! :D
