hi,
I'm brand-new to the group and a relatively new knitter (about 3 years or so). I would love help with several things. One -- how to read a pattern -- not just deciphering the abbreviations, etc. Another is-- how to fix a dropped stitch without ripping.
thanks!
SGardner

Welcome Steven!

Which method have you tried for knitting (English or Continental)? If one isn't working out you could always try the other and see if it 'clicks' better for you

Thank you.
I am using continental, but I am still stuck on CO bit, somehow I believe the yarn I'm using is too cheap and thin, and is harder for a beginner. I'm going to try a thicker yarn today hopefully will make it easier. Seeing what people on here can do knitting is quite amazing and motivating.

Thicker yarn might be more forgiving yes

I enjoy knitting for myself and for charity, and have several projects in the works. Most recently joined the Oddball Baby Blanket group. I look forward to learning more techniques and tips from this forum.

I have not been a part of a forum before. I am shy about this.

Hi, I am glad to find this forum!
My mom was a fantastic knitter, but i paid no attention when she tried to teach me as a kid...
So now, years later she had a stroke and i thought some knitting may give her something to do with her hands, and who knows. stimulate some memories. Well, unfortunately it did not work for her, but in the process i got hooked myself.
I am a beginner, and having fun, there are little pratice pieces all over the place.
Looking forward to getting to know all of you!
