Yeppers! I agree. But then also remember that "getting it" might just come with practice. When I started knitting, I could physically perform the knit st; but I didn't feel like I actually understood. Once the principles of knitting sunk it, only then did I *feel* like a knitter.
By principles, I only mean that I finally understood that knitting was basically pulling loops through and/or over other loops in an organized manner.
So keep at it with patience; the end is well worth the means.
(Bleh, that sounded like speech, eh?)
Anywhoo - onward with Knitting
