Okay, how many 's's in that? There's ssk which is slip 2 sts separately knitwise, then put the L needle into the front of them and knit together. The sssk is the same but slipping 3 sts. There's a video for ssk on the Decreases page.

Hi and welcome. I notice you have your full address in the location area, that's not a good idea on a public forum, anyone could see it. You can just leave your city in.

New to Knitting
Hello ... I am in love with this site ... I have just started teaching myself to knit. It has been interesting and only one ball of yarn got thrown ... LOL ... not really, but I did get frustrated. I wish that I had someone around that I could learn from, but I am doing okay and just practicing and learning different things. I haven't started any projects yet, not sure where to start ... I don't want something hard, but something that I will enjoy. I was thinking a wrap, or a lap blanket, or a scarf, I don't know, not even sure where to get a nice pattern for any of them. Anyway ... thank you for this wonderful site!!

I would say that choosing a first project is very difficult! There are SO many beautiful knitting patterns to choose from. You can find several free knitting patterns on Knitting Pattern Central.

Since you're just starting out, you might enjoy making some coasters or dishcloths, so you can try out different stitches. It sure did help me learn a lot by making dishcloths. They are fast to knit, and you learn casting on, knitting, purling, binding off, and weaving in loose ends.

You'll find lots of free dishcloth knitting patterns here:

So glad I found this site
Hello all!

As a new hand knitter, I can hardly contain my excitement at finding THE all-in-one knitting site. The how to videos have been a tremendous help in decoding the sometimes (but not for long) confusing world of knitting patterns.

And lurking the Forum for the past few days has shown me what a friendly, helpful site this is. Thank you for having me here!
