I forgot whether I was knitting or stitching a row next..?
Yes, I'm a dork! I keep losing my place when I finish a row and can't recall whether I'm suposed to knit or purl the next row!?! My friend told me I should be able to tell just by looking at what the stitches look like, but I can't tell?! Help!
In my knitting class, teacher said the yarn hanging from the needle always goes in the right hand and that tells you what your on. If the yarn is dangling from front your on a purl, if it dangles from behind your on knit.
I tied a piece of string to my knit needle. This way, I know that if that needle is in my left hand with the project on it when I start a row, I need to knit that row. It's helpful since I'm working with a black, chenille yarn that really has very little visibility of the pattern right now. :XX:
