Tracy, please don't give up, I know that it can be very frustrating! Try watching Amy's video and doing what she is doing as she is doing it, work along with her. Also, go to the Knitty Gritty Website and look thru all of the shows, most of them have video clips of different things, u can find a list here
. And when all else fails...google something specific and, chances are, there's a tutorial of some sort that will be helpful. I am self taught and have been knitting a bit over a year and found that 'Knitting for Dummies' is the greatest book ever!!
We are here if we can help :D
