new here
Hello,
I am new here. I do not know how to knit as of yet, I am trying to learn I am also left handed so I am finding it harder for me. My Niece gave me this web lite to check out.
take care all

question about pattern
My name is Ann and I am sort of new to knitting....I just cannot figure out a pattern and I find that some one besides me is having the same problem....I understand all the increases but the left side has the same number of stitches as when first started..dont get it...I refer to a posting on April 16 by Saftshe....the thread is {increasing rows with seam rows} My problem is the right side of the sweater has only 9 stitches, same as you start with before the increase...all other increases are fine...what am I doing wrong? Any help will be greatly accepted...

It might help to hold a mirror beside the computer screen and watch our knitting videos in the mirror. That way, you can learn left handed! Good luck.

If you post your question in the "Pattern Central" section of the forum, you'll get some help with your issue. Be sure to include a link to the pattern you are using. Good luck!

You're probably holding the yarn too tight. A lot of new knitters do this, because they are afraid the yarn will slip off the needles. (I used to do it myself!) Just relax, and let the yarn flow. If you have problems, just come back to our forum, and ask us for help. Congratulations on learning to knit!

It means to use two strands of yarn at the same time. You can use the same ball, with the strand from the outside AND the strand from the inside of the ball at the same time. Or, you can use two different balls.

Re-introduction -- Suz from Oregon
I've been gone since January. Back then I was working on our daughter's pet expo. When that was over, in April, I started getting sick. That ended in major surgery in July. Now I'm finally recovered and ready to get back to knitting! It may take me a month to get caught up, but it will be fun.
