Introduction
Hi everyone my name is Dee and I love YARN, YARN, YARN and KNITTING. I'm very new to the forum and how to use it. It's taken me a very long time to figure out how to get this window I'm typing in now. LOL I'm new to blogging too. Have patience please. Actually, if I get this posted tonight I'll feel like I've made a giant step to learning!!!

I am really having some troubles with "YF," "YO" and "YRN" Are they all the same thing .... resulting in an increase???? Once I bring my yarn forward and then attempt the next stitch (in this case a knit stitch) I am having a lot of difficulty. I looked for a long time through the technique videos and didn't find anything to help.[;p

Thanks in advance!!!

WELCOME DEE!

YF,YO, YRN are all the same thing. Just different terminology.

Whether executing a YF, YO, YRN there is one thing to remember: First, visualize two existing stitches...and you're supposed to make a YO inbetween them:
a) If you knit a stitch, YO, then knit the next stitch...for the YO just flop the yarn to the front of the work and knit that 2nd stitch.
b) If you knit a stitch, YO, then purl the next stitch...you kinda have to wrap the yarn round the needle to get the extra stitch out of the YO/YRN maneuver. That is when the term YARN ROUND NEEDLE (YRN) comes into more specific play!

Don't be afraid to tinker with this! It is easy. Just keep an eye on what you accomplished. If there is an extra "leg" or stitch inbetween two existing stitches, you done it right!

Hello hello
Hello hello! I am so glad to join you all in this universe of knitting! I have been knitting avidly for 5 years, because all my grown-up children and younger relatives have decided to have babies. I feel that a new little one needs a hand-knit baby blanket stitched with love and sent with warmest wishes. So we have 7 grandchildren under 4 years, and 8 other little ones. Whew!
Now I would like to knit for adults. And in my eager first attempt to make a sleeveless top, I finished the neckline and did a 3 needle bind off for the shoulder seams and sewed up the side seams. Then I realized the neckline would not go over the head of an adult, or even a baby. The neckline circomference is only 13 inches. Help! TIA
Cathy

Welcome choben!
You have lots of kids to knit for!

I'm not sure what advice to give you on the small neckline. You might want to post your question in the "How To" section of the forum.

That's the way I learned too. And it was nice to be able to watch my "knitting instructor" at all hours of the day and night!

hello everyone
Hello everyone.

My name is Judy and I am 63. i live in Oshawa, Ontario canada.

Used to do a lot of knitting but haven't done much of anything lately. Am all enthused now about crocheting and knitting things to send overseas, like stuffed toys and hats and mitts. Also to donate to charities here at home, like blankets for the homeless. Our Michaels collects squares which are sewn together to make afghans. I know this is done in the States also. I want to do some of those squares too, and then I was viewing the crocheted teddy bears and decided that would be fun, then the afghan patterns. If I start now should get everything done by the 23rd century hopefully.

Enjoy all the questions and introductions of everyone. It took me forever to figure out how to do this, so hope this is right. Oh the joys of getting old.

Hugs

Hola!

Guess i'm the newest kid in town. I'm more into crocheting than knitting. *glances about uneasily* However, i recently found several knitting patterns that i just had to try. Unfortunately, certain parts of those patterns have left me scratching my head and blinking like i just suffered a head trauma. Basically lots of "huh?" and "wait, what?!" and quite a lot "that's it! i'll just wrap the yarn around myself until it looks sweater-like. no one will notice." And that's how i found my way here.

So, you'll basically be bumping into me in the How-To threads. Be gentle.
